Make It Sweet’s owner, Jennifer, guides students through the art of crafting and decorating seasonal cakes, cupcakes, cookies, and confections in workshops lasting 3–4 hours. A graduate of the Culinary Academy of Austin, Jennifer aims to transmit her passion for sweets to students of all experience levels. In her truffles class, culinary protégés craft toothsome ganache fillings before learning to temper and hand-mold chocolate to keep the sweet syrup from flooding nearby gingerbread villages. Students flex starchier skills in cookie-decorating and cupcake classes, in which Jennifer demonstrates how to bake confections and apply royal icing, flooding, fondant, and piping. Each class celebrates a seasonal theme, such as Valentine’s Day in February or Willie Nelson tours in the summer.
Classes provide all necessary ingredients, icing nozzles, baking tools, and decorating supplies. Students are encouraged to take home what they make for later enjoyment.
