What You'll Get
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 $45, you get a three-hour kids’ organic-cupcake-baking class at Rustik Chef in San Rafael (a $90 value).
Rustik Chef's organic cupcake class weds chemical-free ingredients with sugary splendor in the children's cupcake-crafting class. Each technique and ingredient furthers children’s familiarity with the chemistry of baking as they work together in three groups to craft delicious treats. Each group uses a different flour, including rice and coconut, broadening the scope of creation and arming bakers with allergy-combating recipes. Although the class is geared toward kids between the ages of 6 and 15, parents envious of their progeny's future cooking prowess are welcome to sit in and glean baking tips.
At the class’s conclusion, each pastry pupil carries home six mini cupcakes, minus any gobbled during class time. Classes comprise up to 15 students and take place by appointment on Saturdays and Sundays. Phone Rustik Chef to inquire about availability and nail down the date of your offspring's foray into organic-cupcake mastery.
