The pastry chefs at Charm City Cupcakes hone apprentices’ abilities to artistically adorn baked goods during Cupcake Decorating 101 classes. Armed with edible accouterments, cupcake artisans slather baby cakes with mouthwatering buttercream, creating cupcake borders and iced flowers without having to fertilize regular flowers with milk and butter. Throughout the workshop, students learn to create frostings, as well as proper piping and filling techniques. Pupils also learn the basics of decorating bags and couplers and using adornment tools such as the star and round icing tips. Afterward, embellishment laureates can take home their finished products to complement dinner or display in edible picture frames on the living-room wall.
Kids Day Out classes combine the efforts of a parent and a child age 5–12 for 90 minutes of cupcake study. After learning to summon fluffy cakes from bowls of batter, each participant takes home six cupcakes.
