For Children & Teens

CAMPS             

 

REGISTRATION IS OPEN.  NO DEPOSIT OR PAYMENT IS DUE AT THIS TIME.  IF WE ARE ABLE TO HOLD CAMP, PAYMENT CAN BE ARRANGED PRIOR TO THE START OF CAMP.  PLEASE CLICK ON THE REGISTRATION LINK BELOW. FILL OUT ONE FORM PER CHILD.  

Join The Art of Cake Studio for our 10th year of baking and decorating camps!  Learn to bake and decorate with Pastry Chef and Owner, Tammy Dunwoody. Tammy has been featured on Cupcake Wars and The Martha Stewart Show, worked with The Radio City Rockettes, The Bob Hope Family, Bill Griffeth of CNBC and Ellis Island.  She has also been featured in (201) Bride and (201) Magazine, and most recently, Edible Jersey Magazine.  As the first cake decorating and baking camp for kids in Bergen County, she has taught over 2000 children the art of cake decorating and baking.  

We believe that the campers should have fun and learn from their culinary experience.  Children are grouped together by age, with friends or siblings, and work with partners.  Younger campers do not work with our older campers unless requested.  Our low 1:4 instructor to camper ratio ensures the attention and instruction to reach these goals.  Children do not need prior experience with cake decorating or baking to enjoy this camp.  

Lunch:  Lunch can be brought in or purchased (must be prepaid at time of registration) by our full day campers.  Please bring a peanut/tree nut/seed free lunch and drink if you are bringing lunch.  Lunch items are chosen and ordered daily from a local deli or pizzeria.

Morning Decorating:  Campers learn to mix & measure ingredients used to make cakes, cupcakes, and sugar cookies to decorate during the week.  They'll decorate trending fun edible buttercream and fondant cakes, summer themed sugar cookies with royal icing, and have fun decorating cupcakes with buttercream and fondant.   Campers will learn quilting, borders, dusting, stamping and creating characters, flowers and other decorations.  All items are boxed and brought home for everyone to enjoy.

Afternoon Baking:  Each week campers learn to read and follow recipes, measure liquid and dry ingredients and use a mixer to make delicious homemade pastry and desserts.  Each week is a different baking experience and some of the things we'll make include cakes, pies, tarts, hand pies, cheesecake, danish, and more.  This is a hands on class! Children learn all of the necessary skills to make the desserts from scratch.  Desserts are brought home daily so it is a good idea to have a party or bbq planned for the weekend!
