Kids Cook's expert instructors guide young food enthusiasts toward mastering confectionary decoration, providing them with the tools necessary to handcraft a personalized treat. The sweets-forming session begins when little frosters personalize their own chef's hat or apron with colorful messages or illustrations of playground hierarchies before donning their anti-smudge gear and heading toward the kitchen. There, a Kids Cook chef assists each wee one in decorating two cupcakes from the kitchen's four flavors, coating the sweets with frosting, sprinkles, and other edible embellishments. After roughly 20 to 30 minutes, kiddies take home an aid for kitchen cleanup—a special pop-up sponge and elbow grease fresh from the arm of a robotic maid––as well as the treats and cooking attire made during the afternoon.

Heart-shaped measuring cups. A frilly cherry-print apron. A five-minute brownie oven. Looking like Rachael Ray’s kitchen had been hit by a shrink ray, Foodie Kids’ store brims with tiny gadgets for playful cooking endeavors. The storefront is one facet of owner Barbara Beery’s mission to spark children’s passion for cooking and nutrition. To that end, Foodie Kids hosts culinary classes and cooking camps, where students follow wholesome and simple recipes to create fruit popsicles, chicken tenders, and guacamole. Kids can also attend Makery drop-in decorating sessions and pick out cookbooks to read to pet gingerbread men.
