Eat The Art Baking And Cake Decorating Student Takes First Place

Eat The Art Baking Student Takes First Place

Our baking and cake decorating student wins first place in a cupcake competition!!!

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!!!

Baking And Cake Decorating Classes For Children

Unicorn cake decorating classes

We teach a wide range of cake decorating classes.

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.

People in construction make terrific cake decorators. Not kidding.
