The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, but to make it that far you have to be disguised as cake. Get help with today's Groupon: for $40, you get one Extreme Cookies and Cupcakes class at Sweet Wise (an $85 value).
Since opening in 2001, Sweet Wise has baked up a saccharine reputation as a premier cake, candy, and pastry supply store. Owners Kathy and John Gentry understand the crucial role festive pastries play in any celebration, and their goal with the two-hour Extreme Cookies and Cupcakes class is to instill their students with the skills necessary to adorn baked goods with ample flash and pizzazz for any occasion. This sweetmeat-slathering class imparts designer-decorating know-how about embossing fondant, working with royal icing, buttercream icings, and more to help pastry artists realize their dreams of crafting sugary impressionist renditions of apocalyptic sunsets. Plentiful class times throughout May suit all manner of schedules (check back for forthcoming monthly schedules), and included materials relieve worries of forgetting cookie cutters and frosting weasels at home.
The pocket-size champagnes of the dessert world, cupcakes and cookies transform even the most mundane occasion into a full-on celebration. Classes at Sweet Wise are fun and informative, giving you all the skills you need to tame and decorate the most feral of wild cookies.
Owner Kathy Gentry once relied on baking to console her during marathon studying sessions in college. Years later, Gentry has built a booming business devoted to celebrating cake’s charms. Staff guide budding and seasoned pastry chefs alike toward cake tools and instructors curate a packed schedule of courses that cover everything from finessing fondant to freeing trapped clowns from giant cakes. The chefs even film a hugely popular YouTube video series in which they meticulously guide bakers on sugar-laced odysseys.
