The demands of fast-moving society have led to a brief but intense portable dessert frenzy that left us with the handheld donut and the chocolate cell phone. Celebrate the world's most transportable treat with today's Groupon to Rosemary's BakeZaria in Brooklyn. Classes take place on Mondays at 7 p.m., Saturdays at 1 p.m., and Sundays at 5 p.m. Choose between the following options:
- For $22, you get a two-hour cake-pop-baking class for one (a $50 value).
- For $35, you get a two-hour cake-pop-baking class for two (a $100 value).
Rosemary's BakeZaria's custom bakers lavish students with the skills and techniques needed to bake fresh and tasty mini morsels of their own. During each two-hour cake-pop-crafting session, classes of up to 40 students glean a range of delectable recipes and watch as their batter-filled creations puff up beneath the oven's controlled heat and profusion of compliments. Instructors teach creative hands proper dipping and decorating techniques and share the secrets to why these stick-equipped cake pops are so deliciously gooey. Furthermore, specialty molds allow the culinary concoctions to take the shape of miniature cupcakes or ice-cream cones. Students emerge from class with newfound baking knowledge and one dozen individually crafted cake pops ideal for sharing with a friend, family member, or an entire village of Keebler elves.
At BakeZaria, culinary-savvy instructors teach novice bakers to handcraft their own desserts. Workshops show guests how to create artfully decorated sugar cookies, moist cake pops, or cupcakes in flavors such as dulce de leche or chocolate peanut butter using nothing more than eggs, flower, and a standard shrink ray.
