What you'll do

Chicago is known for their awesome food and the art that goes with it! So the first thing we will do is learn how to level and fill your very own 6 inch cake with a few different fillings like mousses and fruit compotes that you can pick.

After that, you can color your icing if you choose to, and then you will properly learn the basic steps of icing, like adding a crumb coat and fully icing your cake.

There will be plenty of different things to decorate with. If you choose to cover your cake with fondant, I will teach you how, and you can even draw on your cake with edible food ink markers or with paint brushes! Meanwhile, I will also be sharing some great places that you definitely HAVE to check out while on your trip to Chicago, like low key, secret restaurants, breweries, bakeries, etc.

When we are done decorating, we will box up your cake for you to take back with you :)

This city is all about being creative, and you're allowed to do what ever decoration you desire during my class, so let that artsy side come out, and let's all have fun, drink, share stories, and meet new people!
Other things to note
Must be 21 to BYOB, I'll have cups! Also bring creativity! You'll have to arrange a way to get here, there's plenty of free street parking outside my place if you're driving! I also speak Spanish, just in case.

Hello, I'm Karen! I have 2 degrees in Culinary Arts and Baking and Pastry and have worked as a line cook and pastry cook all over the Chicagoland Area for the last 12 years now. I have been a wedding cake decorator since 2008 and I taught people how to decorate cakes for a few months in downtown Chicago and I loved it because I met new people and had so much fun with creating open minded, beautiful art that you can eat! As a Chicago native who's worked in the food & service industry, I know LOTS of really good places to eat, drink, and have fun that other's don't really know about.

Where you'll be

We will be in my cozy, second floor apartment here in Chicago, so you can take a look at a typical Chicago home. I will send further instructions on my exact location once the date is near. There's plenty of street parking outside.
