The experienced bakers at Sweet Tooth’s Dessert Bar guide patrons through sweet-treat artistry with BYOB tasting and decorating classes held Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday evenings from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Dessert-tasting sessions inundate taste buds with 8–10 bite-size confections, such as crème brûlée, red velvet cheesecake, and alcohol-infused cupcakes. A series of interactive dessert stations allow students to design their own chocolate-dipped strawberries, contrive wine pairings, and hold informal Q&As with slices of chocolate cake. Each graduate of the two-hour course leaves with a loftier appreciation for the after-dinner fare, as well as a take-home box crammed with decadent delights.
Sweet Tooth’s decorating lessons help finesse frosting dexterity as students delicately adorn quartets of vanilla, lemon, strawberry, or chocolate cupcakes with tiny flowers or weekend to-do lists. Sturdy rolls of fondant unfurl to garnish inedible cake dummies, which pupils can take home to flaunt trimming talents to friends and family.
Sweet Tooth’s Dessert Bar
Sweet Tooth founder Chalandra "Missy" Strickland discovered her talent for baking and pastry decorating in 2004, just before her daughter's seventh birthday. With little money to spare, she baked a cake shaped like SpongeBob SquarePants, and the rest was history: her daughter's delight upon seeing it gave her the inspiration to continue perfecting her trade.
Sweet Tooth's selection of cupcake flavors runs the gamut from traditional red velvet to unconventional Bacon-licious, and several of each occupy a gleaming glass case at the café's entrance. During the day, sunlight illuminates the playful lime ceiling and cushy detached backboards of the café as patrons sip espresso drinks, trawl the Internet, and nibble on sandwiches or pastries. As night falls, the café slips on a more glamorous feel as Sweet Tooth's plated dessert menu becomes available. Adult taste buds delight in alcohol-infused cupcakes ¬and the more complex flavors of the Turtle Delight, a caramel-and-pecan brownie supporting a generous scoop of ice cream.
Sweet Tooth's baking sages also educate blossoming bakers on decorating and desserts. Dessert-tasting sessions delight with 8–10 bite-size confections, and decorating lessons help finesse frosting dexterity as students drape cake stand-ins in fondant and adorn cupcakes with tiny flowers or weekend to-do lists.
