Before cupcakes, the only vehicle for frosting consumption was the bare hand, and the only place to load frosting onto that vehicle was the neighborhood frosting bucket. Learn to use frosting the evolved way with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a two-hour Mommy & Me or Daddy & Me cupcake-decorating class for a child and parent at Castle of Cakes (a $40 value).

Helmed by sugar-savvy sovereign and former Wilton Method instructor Sonya Washington, Castle of Cakes leads dessert designers through the fundamentals of all things frosted in cupcake composition. The Mommy & Me or Daddy & Me class pairs a child (age 2–5) and his or her progenitor for a two-hour lesson, during which they will together decorate a dozen blank cupcake canvases with sugar-laced embellishments such as flowers, ladybugs, or smiley faces with eyes that always appear to follow you. After decorating each handheld mouth pleaser, students can ingest them on the ride home or allow them to glow majestically from the family trophy case. Classes are scheduled afternoons and evenings throughout June.

Castle of Cakes

Cake artist Sonya Washington has seen a lot in the last 30 years. She left behind a corporate position to pursue her confectionary dream, and even spent nine months homeless while working to save her fledgling sweet shop. But all those trials are behind her, and they’ve paid off.

With educational certificates in cake decoration and pastry design, Sonya and her business have become so successful that she gives away more than 10,000 mini cupcakes annually, either to charity or as samples. She trains new generations of sweets makers with daily classes, which cover topics including baking for couples, advanced cupcake creation, and how to spot counterfeit buttercream frosting that is actually just gold. While waiting to pick up cake pops in gluten-free or sugar-free configurations, patrons press their noses against glass to peer at Sonya’s cakes, which have included some shaped like guitars, cars, and hats.
