Learn to work with chocolate and sugar to produce your own candies and confections. Chef Heather teaches private classes. Please contact us to learn more about the lessons.
We teach you to work with chocolate. You may have noticed that once you melt chocolate it never sets up properly again. Whether you are trying to drizzle chocolate on your cookies or dip your cake pops once chocolate melts it needs to be (sorry for the sciencey talk) crystallized or tempered to achieve that notable snap and shine. We will show you how to do that.
Once we have our chocolate crystallized we move on to mold the shells and then fill them with delicious creamy centers.
We would love to teach you how to work with this amazing food. Please go to Contact Us for more information on our private classes.

We are so proud of our student, Emery. She is in our Eat The Art baking and cake decorating program. She recently entered a cupcake competition and won first place!
For the competition Emery made vanilla bean cupcakes with white chocolate truffle filling and Swiss meringue buttercream frosting. She made modeling chocolate and then created teacups (and saucers) into which she placed the CUPcakes. She baked shortbread cookies and placed them onto a modeling chocolate plate. She made a cream jug, sugar bowl and spoon, in addition to napkin rings. All of her edible art was then placed upon a lace-covered cake board.
Way to go Emery!!!
