Rosemary’s BakeZaria’s custom cupcake bakers lavish students with the skills and techniques needed to bake fresh and tasty mini morsels of their own. During each two-hour session, classes of up to 15 students glean a range of delectable recipes in traditional and vegan varieties and watch as their batter-filled creations puff up beneath the oven’s controlled heat and profusion of compliments. Fresh batches of frosting shimmy through specially shaped tips to adorn each newly cooled cupcake as instructors teach creative hands to frost each confection with artistic finesse. Students emerge from class with newfound baking knowledge and a collection of four decadent cupcakes, perfect for presenting to loved ones, eating alone, or catering a wedding for Indian in the Cupboard characters.
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.
