Candy Classes & Parties

 

Located downtown, our classes and private parties are perfect for team-building, girls night out, or celebrating any occasion. We’ll provide delicious snacks. Please feel free to BYOB.

Candy Classes

Buttercream Basics  $75/Person | 2 hours | 6-8 People
We made Italian meringue buttercream for the first time in pastry school and since then we have wanted to frost everything with it! In this class we’ll break down the method for this classic European dessert staple and demonstrate basic piping techniques, as well as ways to “rescue” a buttercream gone awry. Each participant will leave the class with six cupcakes they’ve decorated themselves.

Caramel Making Class  $75/Person | 2-3 hours | 4-6 People
We’ll show you how to make two different varieties of caramel—creamy melt-in-your-mouth French and chewy American—and how to infuse different flavors. After demonstrations of both caramel styles, participants will work in pairs to make their own batches, cut and twist wrap to take home and enjoy or give as the perfect handmade gift.

Truffle Making Class  $75/Person | 2.5 hours | 6-8 People
Learn to make decadent chocolate truffles in our artisan candy kitchen while enjoying chef’s choice of freshly made savory and sweet treats. We’ll demonstrate the basics of chocolate ganache then help you roll, dip and decorate your own truffles to take home in a fancy box. This class is ideal for team building.

 

Private Parties

Grown-Up Candy & Sweets Party  $30/person | 1.5-2 hours | Min. 8 people
Looking for an interesting location for your next work, friend or family gathering? Bring ‘em to Whimsical Candy. We provide the space, a chocolate tasting and an assortment of freshly made pastries, candies and other sweets. A perfect change of pace for an informal meeting or celebratory gathering.

Kid’s Cupcake Party  $40/child | 1.5 hours | 6-8 People
Be a rock star and bring the kids downtown to the candy kitchen for a unique and memorable party. The class starts with an informative chocolate tasting. Next, one of our candy makers demonstrates how to make marshmallow, and each child creates a delicious s’more with the La-Dee-Dah of their choice. Then, the fun really begins as each child pipes six cupcakes with an assortment of our freshly made buttercream flavors and decorates them with classic candy toppings. Children ages 8 and older.
