Like playing video games, cake decorating requires an eye for detail, steady hands, and the ability to avoid stepping in colorful goo. Strengthen hand-eye coordination with today's Groupon: for $100, you get a three-hour cake-decorating class at Dragonfly Cakes in Sausalito (a $220 value). Classes are held on Saturday afternoons at 1 p.m. Check the reservation website for complete details.
Dragonfly Cakes' skilled team of confectionary clairvoyants shares its gourmet gâteau-enhancing skills during three-hour cake-decorating classes held in a fully stocked commercial kitchen. After reconnoitering a prebaked 6-inch cake, students seal off dangerous cake crevasses with depth-defeating butter cream before encasing the base in sugar-dense fondant, more butter cream, or a marzipan laser perimeter. Students construct gum-paste flowers or other delicious decorations to adorn cakes and then take centerpiece-busting masterpieces home at the end of the class. Each session's attendance is kept at a maximum of 15 students to ensure that bourgeoning cake artists get the attention they need to become proficient, and Dragonfly Cakes supplies all necessary ingredients and equipment. Aprons are provided, and participants are advised to wear closed-toe shoes and clothing suitable for baking, such as Poppin' Fresh hats.
