2019 SUMMER CAMP REGISTRATION IS OPEN!  

CAMPS AT THE ART OF CAKE STUDIO
JUNE 24 - AUGUST 22
Ages 7-13:  Morning Cake Decorating and Afternoon Baking 
Ages 12-17: Morning Cake Decorating Camp (with a gluten-free option) and Afternoon Baking Camp August 5-8
We do not use nuts of any kind at the studio and do not use products that contain nuts.  We cannot guarantee that all products are made in nut free facilities.  Gluten Free option is available in our morning decorating camps. 

Join The Art of Cake Studio for our 9th year of camp!  Learn to bake and decorate with Cake Artist, Chef and Owner, Tammy Dunwoody. Featured on Cupcake Wars and The Martha Stewart Show, Tammy has 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 1500 children the art of cake decorating and baking.  Many of them have returned as camp counselors!

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 by our full day campers.  Please bring a peanut/tree nut free lunch and drink if you are bringing lunch.  Lunch items are chosen and ordered daily from a local deli or pizzeria.

4 Half Days $380

Morning Decorating:  Campers learn to mix & measure ingredients used to make a cake and cupcakes that they decorate during the week.  They'll decorate a fun edible cake, decorate cupcakes and design and decorate their own two tiered display cake (made from styrofoam and covered and decorated in fondant).  Our popular skittles or M&M anti-gravity cake is offered at each session along with several other choices.  The two tiered cake can be any design they choose, from sports, to unicorns or mermaids, emojis and more.  Campers learn to cover a cake in fondant, make characters, flowers and other decorations, use edible glitter, pearl dust and fondant cutters and molds. Display cakes last several years and can be used as a decoration or centerpiece.  All items are taken home. 

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 are brownies topped with chocolate icing, pies, tarts, hand pies, cheesecake, danish, cream puffs 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!
