By far our most popular party. What could be more fun than a group of friends with their hands all covered with sticky, gooey pizza dough and their faces sprinkled lightly with flour? A few giggles and a little tomato sauce later and you'll each have your own individual, Homemade Pizza. The possibilities are endless as we set out toppings of your choice and YOU get to be the chef. The fun continues with cupcake decorating! About a 10" pizza and 2 cupcakes/guest. That way they can have their cake and eat it, too!
In The Jungle
This adventurous trek through the kitchen is nothing less than edible art. Your little chefs will make beautiful Snakeoli (American Stromboli), painted with colorful egg glazes to look like friendly snakes! The meat and cheese fillings make them related to a sandwich, but the painting makes them art!. Can be made vegetarian, too! Decorate cupcakes and you'll round out your cooking/ art adventure with full tummies and a few giggles to boot!
Recipes inspired by spa treatments? Sure! What could be more fun than rubbing oatmeal all over your face with your friends? This fun and silly cooking party will mix things up when we make Oatmeal Facial Scrub and Cinnamon Vanilla Salt Hand Scrub and your choice of Oatmeal Cookies OR Salted Soft Pretzels. Bright, colored face cloths make clean up fun, too. Make you take lots of pictures. It isn't often you get to see your friends with food on their face!
Tea parties are only fun when you invite all of your friends! Whether you decide to dress for the occasion or make it a more casual affair, you and your friends will love this baking class! We'll make Strawberry Scones and Tea Sandwiches. Of course, we'll pour tea to drink, as well. You decide whether you want to raise your pinky when you drink it...
Picasso Cake Decorating
Everyone eats cake on their birthday- but how many kids get to decorate one? In this creative class, you and your friends will each decorate your own 5" layer cake to bring home with you and a cupcake to celebrate the birthday song with. We'll set out all the frosting and show you how to decorate it like a pro. Sticky, gooey, delicious FUN! A little more in-depth than you might be expecting, we'll cover filling, crumb coating and finish coating, as well as basic decorating. Everyone leaves with an entire cake!
Make brownie sundaes~ from scratch! That's right- this kids cooking class has your birthday king or queen making chocolate brownies, vanilla ice cream and hot fudge sauce with their party guests...all from scratch! We'll serve a portion in our cute sundae cups and send each child home with half a dozen brownies.
If you love tacos, you'll love our from scratch empanadas. Kids will make the dough then choose from a variety of filling such as taco meat, cheese, veggies and beans to customize their dish that will be served with salsa and sour cream. For dessert, choose from Mexican chocolate mug cake or cupcake decorating.
A Little Italy
Like lasagna, but in a much more interesting package! Your kids will love familiar flavors, presented in this fun and interesting way. Cheese Cannelloni with Cream Rosa Sauce will give you a little taste of Italy. For dessert kids will use buttercream frosting and candies to decorate cupcakes..
Mac&Cheese from scratch is delicious fun! Kids under 8 will stick with our tried and true basic macaroni and cheese (or TREES aka, Broccoli) and decorate cupcakes for dessert.
Our chefs who are 8 and older will experiment with a variety of cheeses and mix-in as they shred and combine flavors to create their own one-of-a-kind masterpiece of Penne Mornay. Birthday child can choose sugar cookies OR Cupcake decorating for dessert.
I LOVE Chocolate
Part cooking, part art. We use a chocolate making party to teach all kinds of things...patience, temperature, mise en place...but let's face it: Chocolate is just pure, decadent, finger-licking, FUN!
Choose one recipe from each list;
Cookies & Cream Truffles, Chocolate Lollipops OR
Chocolate Candy Cups
Fudgy Brownies OR Chocolate Chip Muffins
The best pajama parties start with snacks and end with breakfast! In this wacky kids cooking birthday party, we’ll serve up both! Start with soft Amish Pretzels. Finish with sweet Blueberry Muffins. But don’t forget to wear your PJs!
Seems we're always monkeying around in the kitchen...this kids' cooking party is no different! Whether you decide to wear your sock monkey t-shirts, or tote your favorite sock monkey animals, you're sure to find that familiar red grin when you decorate Sock Monkey Cupcakes and bake Monkey Bread!
