This week I took my first ever cupcake class… and it was at Beauty Cakes!

Ruthy shared some of her secrets with us while we learned to make the traditional vanilla cupcake with milk chocolate icing. It was superb. With a few friends we popped on our pink Beauty Cakes aprons and attempted to make the most scrumptious cupcakes ever in Ruthy’s adorable Green Gate frenzy kitchen in her cupcake boutique in the 17th. It was such a wonderful evening filled with giggles and so much gosh darn sugar. I learned a lot of really fun and useful words.

The classes are in groups of 5-6 people, and there are specific nights designated for kids classes. This one was on a Tuesday night and started at 7pm. For 40 euros you get to learn how to make cupcakes, bring home your cupcakes that you make and decorate, and a petit snack/tea while the cupcakes are baking. It’s a fantastic time so I highly recommend it. Mille mercis, Ruthy!

I clearly have some kind of addiction to eating cupcakes.

    Did you have to be on your best baking behavior? Or did you get to lick the bowl?

    That last comment was meant to be in reply to the “tasting the bowl” comment you made. It’s late, I’m tired, it may be time to step away from the interweb.
