  • Sweet Corn Cupcakes with Honey Cream Cheese Frosting
  • Chocolate S'more Cupcakes with Marshmallow Frosting
  • Peachy Prosecco Cupcakes with Sparkling Peach Buttercream

Skills covered in class:

  • Understanding baking ingredients
  • Mixing batters
  • Determining cake doneness
  • Preparing buttercream
  • Selecting stone fruit
  • Selecting and working with chocolate
  • Working with frostings

Due to the length of cupcake boot camp, we encourage you eat a hearty breakfast prior to coming to class as no food will be served with the exception of the cupcakes made during class.

In this hands-on class, students will be paired in groups of four and  work together as a team to prepare the recipes. Groups will eat together at their cooking stations while being spaced out from others in  their group as much as possible. Should you wish to have your own group  or table, you will need to reserve 4 seats.
