Before the invention of candy, mankind had to make do with "nature's candy"—fermented cabbage, fruit the monkeys didn't want, and live, feather-covered Peeps. Celebrate man's triumph over nature with today's Groupon: for $17, you get a basic candy-making class (a $35 value) at Cake N Candy, located on Sprinkle Road. Classes are held twice a month, with the first sessions offered April 7 and 21.
Cake N Candy delights chocolate connoisseurs and casual candy consumers with toothsome tutorials on the art of crafting candy. Fill your mind with sweet knowledge by enrolling in a basic candy-making course. An experienced instructor will teach you and fellow students the skills necessary to make, mold, and package your own bon-bons. Confection apprentices will craft a variety of candies and chocolates, such as chocolate-covered cherries, peanut-butter cups, filled candies, and almond-coconut bars. Equipped with the sweet shop's chocolate bark and fudge recipes, and their own personal creations, students will leave Cake N Candy with enough know-how to start building a candy kingdom to rival that of the evil Willy Wonka.
