Advances in miniaturization technology led to a brief but intense dessert-shrinking frenzy that gave us the cupcake, the baked rhode island, and the gingerbread amoeba. Celebrate the world's most successful shrunken treat with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a two-hour cupcake-decorating class at Faboo Cakes, offered every Tuesday at 6 p.m. in Hendersonville (a $55 value). Wednesday and Saturday classes may be added to accommodate newcomers.
The mini-masterpiece designers at Faboo Cakes offer tasty tutelage to sweet-toothed students during cupcake-decorating classes. During two-hour BYOB or family-friendly sessions, experienced sugar artists will demonstrate how to make decorative swirls, flowers, and dreams of sugarplums in each themed, project-based class, providing trainees with fresh ingredients and all the necessary supplies. After embellishing mini cakes, classmates will take home a half-dozen confections to eat for homework. Festive classes are also available during holiday seasons and can be customized for specific occasions. Today's deal lets you buy unlimited Groupons as gifts to host a cupcake-decorating get-together or hold a cupcake-themed business meeting.
With nothing but real butter, milk, flour, sugar, eggs, and sheer artistic ability, sisters Kimberly and Kristina and their team keep Faboo Cakes' ovens churning out elaborate and edible art pieces. Their sweet cake sculptures have taken the shape of football mascots, musical instruments, trucks, sci-fi characters, and pets. In addition to crafting whimsical desserts, the bakeshop whips up brownies, cookies, whoopie pies, fresh tarts, and other pastries, as well as marshmallows made by hand or plucked fresh from the tree. Kimberly and Kristina also reveal their secrets in hands-on baking classes.
