The pastry chefs at Charm City Cupcakes hone apprentices' abilities to artistically adorn baked goods through fun-filled workshops that borrow directly from Charm City's cupcake classes. During the Cupcake Decorating 101 workshop, students learn to create frostings as well as proper piping and filling techniques. Armed with edible accouterments, cupcake artisans slather prebaked chocolate and vanilla cupcakes with mouthwatering buttercream icing, creating cupcake borders and icing flowers and allowing tiny cakes to stylishly comply with standard "no shirt, no service" policies. Alternatively, the Mommy/Daddy & Me workshop facilitates quality time between parent and child as they take sweet-toothed cues from a friendly instructor. With prebaked cupcakes in hand, participants learn to create kid-friendly shapes and tasty floral arrangements. Afterward, embellishment laureates in both workshops can take home their finished products to complement dinner or display in edible picture frames on the living-room wall.

Be aware you are looking for a little house - it is fairly difficult to find, but worth it! The cupcakes were good. Ms. Sandra, who both took my order and called me the morning of pick-up, was very pleasant. Thanks for getting me my cupcakes even when threatened by flooding!
