We love our cupcakes and cakes but Spooky Haunted Houses in October are too much fun to pass up! Customers came in and decorated their houses all month long with unlimited icing, fondant, candy and tools. We even had candy corn, gummy worms, oreo crumbs, pumpkins, and candy bones to stick on the houses. Creativity was at it's peak this month. If you missed out don't worry, Gingerbread Houses start December 1st!
We just love Cocktails for a Cause so much. We have been sponsoring their events for over 2 years now and can't get enough. If you are a woman and are looking to get involved with your community - Cocktails for a Cause is the place for you! This month's event featured the non profit: Dolls for Daughters and the featured woman owned business was...MY MAKE STUDIO! We were so honored to be featured at this past event and can't thank Cocktails for a Cause enough for including us. We had our whole staff attend to help hand out cupcakes, give icing demonstrations, and show off our fun classes!
We are so excited to announce Greer Mckee is joining the My Make Studio family! She will be filling our display case with weekly fresh baked goods. Although we love cupcakes and cakes, she will be stepping out of our comfort zone and baking fruit filled empanadas, macaroons, sugar cookies, pies and all sorts of yummy treats! Not only are her baked goods delicious, she is a talented cake decorator as well. She will be doing contract work with us so we can finally provide our customers with a direct contact for custom made cupcakes and cakes!
So if you're around this weekend and looking for something sweet, stop into My Make Studio and grab one of her delicious empanadas. Or go out on a limb and grab a dozen for that 4th of July party you're going to!
Large Empanadas: $6
Small Empanadas: $3
Sugar Cookies: $4
COPIC called My Make Studio to see if we could host a 70 person Cake Battle. We've never done an on site event before or hosted 70 people so we figured - "Hey, why not?!" We brought 10 8" cakes and COPIC split their 70 employees into teams of 7. COPIC is expanding into 10 new states so each team drew a state from a hat and that was their theme. Teams were given 90 minutes to decorate their cake to match their state.
We provided each team with one of each color of icing, a spatula, tip set, pizza cutter, paint brush, water cup, rolling pin, and a rubber mat. We then set up a cart in the center of the event with a large bowl of fondant, 100 cookie cutters, more icing bags, assorted flavors of syrup, assorted colors of sprinkles, and assorted candies.
The teams had so much fun working together to decorate their cakes. People got creative and some were true artists. After the event the coordinator reported, "What a great success Friday was! Thank you to you and your family for coming out and facilitating the cake decorating competition! We have gotten awesome reviews from the employees!"

Have you come in and decorated cakes in our studio before? It's a lot of fun. Everything is do it yourself and we encourage ultimate creativity. Several times a month we help you out with that creativity by teaching a class. Studio hostess, Chayla Turner, is an incredible teacher and she designs all of the classes herself. Although her classes are fully taught, she encourages you to put your own twist on the class and this Lace Cake Class was no different!
One of our favorite projects month after month is Southmoor Elementary's Passion Project. This past semester we had a fun group of kids who challenged us to venture outside of our cupcake world. They wanted to decorate everything! The final week with them they asked for donuts so we delivered! We hope all of these wonderful kids have the best summer ever and come visit us at the studio!

Chayla Turner just keeps turning up the heat with her creative classes. More and more people are signing up to join her in recreating her amazing cupcakes and cakes. Chayla's classes are great for 8 years old and up, and for adults we provide beer and wine. The most recent class was a bunny cake and it could not have turned out any more adorable. Most people said they didn't think they could decorate the same as Chayla but with a little instruction, just look what they designed!
Easter weekend was beautiful. Weather could not have been better for holiday festivities with the family. Saturday at My Make Studio was spent celebrating the big Bunny himself and designing his house. Using colorful icings and fun fondant, families decorated their very own Bunny Huts. You better believe peeps and jelly beans and chocolate eggs were involved too! Decorating these fun huts is the best family activity and they make a great center piece for brunch the next morning. If you missed out on our Bunny Huts, don't worry, we do Spooky Haunted Houses in October and Gingerbread Houses in December. Hope to see you and your family there!
