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!!!

We teach children of all ages to bake and then decorate their cakes. They learn the importance of each ingredient and, depending upon their age, we teach them the science of baking. Classes are customized to the level of skill and the age of the child. We also customize the design of the cake if the child would like to build a specific creation.

You will learn to make molded items, such as Easter Bunnies. You will also learn to make spectacular hand-rolled truffles.

Students learn to bake and build fine cakes by combining both texture and flavor. This student made a cake consisting of layers of coconut Dacquoise (a meringue base cake layer), almond lemon Genoise (cold process using nut powders) and filling the cake with layers of Meyer lemon Mousse, freshly poached peaches and Tahitian vanilla creme Anglaise folded with meringue butter. The cake was finished with Italian meringue buttercream. Are you hungry yet?
