Back-to-School Fun With Sweetology

By | Blog | No Comments

Back 2 School Sweet 3Back-to-School with Sweetology

It’s that time of year again—sending kids back to school with their lunch boxes, homework, and heap of school supplies that seem to keep building up as the year goes on. We know how difficult it can be to get caught up in our day-to-day lives and forget to take a little time to have some fun and enjoy ourselves.

Summer is short in St. Louis, but that doesn’t mean the upcoming school year won’t be any less exciting. We are eager to announce that the after-school decorating sessions are here! Wednesdays, from 3:30-5:30 p.m. for kids ages 8 and up. During these events, we will be teaching basic cake decorating techniques as well as encouraging the kids to let their creative ideas take flight with the various tools and mediums available. After-school decorating will continue every Wednesday night—the perfect time for a mid-week break in the big city.

But the fun doesn’t stop there! Decorating classes will also take place (almost!) every Sunday with a different decorating theme. In these classes, you’ll learn how to level and frost a cake just like a professional, while also creating a fondant topper that corresponds to the theme. Don’t worry—you’ll still be able to put your own spin on your creation. After all, the best sweets are originals! Check our calendar for details on which sweet Sunday class you’d like to register for.

During the fall months, we’ll also be exploring other inspiring ideas and themes, such as crafting offset circles out of fondant, piping intricate cake borders, and sculpting fondant flowers and bows. You’ll feel like a professional cake decorator in no time!

Fun doesn’t have to end the moment the school bell rings. Gather your friends, family members, or schoolmates and sign up for an evening in St. Louis of cake decorating and sweets galore! We look forward to seeing you putting your creative genius to work and taking some time out of your day just for you.

Don’t let the stresses of a new school year take over. There is still time to enjoy a little treat every now and then. If you still aren’t able to attend one of our classes, you can also pick up a decorating kit to take the fun home with you. Remember: grab some cake, spread the icing, coat with sprinkles and indulge. Repeat!

Summertime at Sweetology

Okay, we have to admit it, as much as we love spring here at Sweetology, we are really looking forward to some summer fun!

It will be great to see everyone’s smiling faces stopping in for some candy after a day at the ball field, or decorating some cupcakes before heading to their favorite spot to enjoy a snack at the park.

Summertime means no school, which means more time for fun with the entire family! As we look forward to the warmest months of the year, we’re excited to note that we’ve filled this summer vacation up with a variety of interactive decorating camps for Sweetologists of practically any age and interest.

As the school year comes to a close, we’re looking forward to graduation parties and backyard barbecues galore! Stop in for some sweets design specially for your grad, or pick up the perfect ready-to-go cupcakes just in time for your picnic!

Older Sweetologists can mark their calendars for our COCA Collaborative Camp sessions, ages 11-13 June 8th – 12th, ages 14-18 June 15th – 19th, and ages 8-10 from July 13th – July 17th! These camps are mostly full – but as of May 14th there are still a few spaces open for our campers age 14-18!

There’s an adventure to be had at our Adventure Camp! With two sessions available, this camp will be packed full of fun & sweet memories for campers. Adventure Camp covers the basics of cake decorating, we’ll explore playing with our food through a few fun games and deliciously creative art projects! Please note – for this camp attendees should plan to bring a snack, and a water cooler will be accessible through out the day!

In July we’re hosting an array of fun half-day workshops in a summer series for campers to enjoy creating a different, special project each day. Register for one workshop – or all five! Workshop projects include creative themes like: A Day at the Beach, Minion Madness, Crazy Cupcake Caterpillars, Sandcastle Cakes, and Christmas in July Gingerbread Houses!

As we usher in summer and say goodbye to this school year, we’re happy to be a place to celebrate new beginnings! Gather your friends for an afternoon out at Sweetology this summer- we look forward to seeing you!
