Sweets Unlimited's team of frosting sculptors leads groups in two-hour decorating sessions that equip hands to forge edible masterpieces for six major holidays. Head confectionary creators draw upon tried and true methods honed during the bakery's 30-year tenure, teaching bakers to bedeck six cupcakes and six cookies in molded dollops of frosting that portray the specific designs, characters, and vacation-day allotments of the year's preeminent holidays. While churning out sugary hearts, multicolored turkeys, and grinning jack-o'-lanterns, students nibble on the bites of a light lunch, including such daily changing offerings as a fresh wrap and salad. The classes supply bakers with all the sugary ingredients and equipment necessary, so patrons can leave frosting satchels at home.
Eva Zasimovich and her team know how to sweeten any occasion. In her 30 years of cake-crafting experience, she's done everything from crafting cute and creepy Halloween cupcakes to piping elaborate, lace-like designs onto elegant four-tier wedding cakes. Her unique cake flavors give taste buds their own reason to celebrate with options including champagne raspberry, cherry cheesecake, and chocolate caramel toffee crunch, and an array of assorted miniature pastries including pecan bars and coconut tarts provide a challenging obstacle for dieting Lilliputians. Other specialties include housemade key-lime, blackberry, and apple-cheese-caramel pies, as well as Eva's famous mudslide cake⎯a mountain of mini éclairs featuring housemade chocolate fudge drizzling down every side. When she isn't busy dipping gourmet caramel apples or designing gift baskets for corporate events, Eva also hosts decorating classes and parties for patrons eager to design their own treats.
