I’m not sure how I heard about Eat The Art, but I have been ordering all my boys birthday cakes from her for years. I always say, what kind of cake do you want this year and they come up with some interesting asks. We’ve had a pirate ship, a dump truck full of candy, a shark tooth shark cake (it was a t-Rex and shark creation), a roller hockey cake and a fishing cake. Heather’s creations are over the top amazing to look at and to eat!
Eat the Art also has the most beautiful chocolates and candies you can imagine. The Valentine candy I ordered for teachers was too pretty to eat, but I tried one for myself and oh my, it was amazing!
The next time you are looking for a cake or candies please consider Eat The Art and you won’t be disappointed…you will be spoiled for any other cake/candy for the rest of your life. She even delivers to your door or location of choice!

Pirate ship cake with edible wood planks and edible sails

Edible chocolate “wood” and edible sails

I had the best time at a macaron class! We came here for a bachelorette party activity and it was so much fun! I’ve always wanted to learn how to make macarons but the process seemed ¬†intimidating and the cost for classes in my area is high. When my friends proposed this, I couldn’t believe the value. We had a hands on class where Heather taught us the best tips and tricks to tackle macarons at home. I left armed with a box of tasty treats (that I made!), detailed recipes, and so many great pieces of general baking advice. My baking has improved already.

I would have given Eat the Art 5 stars if my experience had ended with just the class. But now that I have lots of time and nowhere to go, I decided to put my skills to the test. I made macarons at home!

Heather is obviously an artist and you will definitely want to do as she says and “eat the art.” If you’re looking for a girls’ weekend activity or something fun for a bachelorette party, you will not regret taking a class at Eat the Art!
