Junior Chefs (9-14): Cupcake Love! Creative Cupcake Decorating For Valentine's Day
Budding pastry chefs (ages 9-14), get ready to conquer the creative world of cupcake decorating in this interactive Valentine’s Day-themed class.
Next to chocolate and flowers, nothing brings bigger smiles than giving (or receiving!) hand-decorated sweets for Valentine’s Day. Forget spending a fortune at the bakery for those decorated cupcakes you have admired for so long. With the serious and useful cupcake decorating techniques and tips you’ll learn today, you can make your own colorful and unique cupcakes like a pro.
Under the direction of an experienced instructor, Rachel Van Stratton, you’ll get your imagination flowing as she shows you all about the fundamentals of cupcake decorating. She’ll instruct as she shows you how to make the perfect Buttercream Icing. Then, she’ll show you how to use it as she discusses icing types, decorator bags and tips, handling and techniques like stars, zig-zags, drop flowers, leaves, hearts... and much more!
It will all come together as you practice what you’ve learned by decorating pre-made cupcakes - with permission to get as crazy as you want with your own unique Valentine’s Day designs! Won’t that be fun?
As a bonus, Rachel will show you how to make a special tasty filling, and how to add this sweet surprise into your cupcakes. After this class, you’ll be decorating like a pro!

Important: We require a waiver to be signed on behalf of each student by a parent or legal guardian prior to your child’s admittance to this class. This waiver requests a phone number where you can be reached during the class if necessary, and names of any additional people who are authorized to pick up the child after class. Visit our website at kcculinary.com for a copy of this Waiver. We strongly encourage you to print off a copy of this Waiver and bring it to class with your student. If we don’t receive a signed Waiver, your child will not be allowed to attend class. We are sorry but we cannot make any exceptions to this rule. If someone other than the parent drops off your child, they will need evidence that they are the legal guardian for your child in order to sign a Waiver at that time. For safety reasons, we also recommend that students under 18 wear close-toed shoes, long pants and have long hair pulled back.
We are dedicated to designing age-appropriate kids' cooking classes, and currently offer classes perfect for budding chefs aged 2-4 years old, 5-8 years old and 9-14 years old.
