Bite Of Your Life's master crafters of cakes and cupcakes impart their knowledge to sweet-toothed kids and adults alike with a variety of decorating classes. Wee ones as young as 3 and 4 pair up with their parents in the Mommy and Me series on Saturday mornings at 9:30 a.m., where adults bring their skillful oven-handling capabilities and children contribute their finger-painting prowess to experiment with cubist icing techniques. Adult decorating classes teach apprentice frosting sculptors to infuse the blank canvases of cupcakes and cakes with sumptuous fondants and a rainbow of icings. Meanwhile, teen classes instruct youths in the art of distracting hall monitors and bribing crooked class treasurers with frosted entremets in the form of cupcakes or 8-inch cakes topped with fondant and appliqués. Class times may vary, so contact Bite Of Your Life for class reservations and schedule.
