My Make Studio Hosts First On Site Corporate Team Building Event for 70 Employees!

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!"

If you have a company team building or holiday event coming up and are interested in our Cake Battle or Gingerbread House Workshops contact us at info@mymakestudio.com.

Our Lace Cake Class was oh so elegant

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!

Have a great summer, Southmoor!

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!

Classes are Gaining Traction - Don't Miss Out!

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!

Bunny Huts Hopped right into My Make Studio

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!

Wedding Season is Around the Corner

Wedding Season is Around the Corner

We know that wedding season is an extremely stressful, exciting, and beautiful time of the year. Budgets are tight and of course you want everything to be just perfect for your special day. If you're looking to keep cake and cupcake costs down, consider coming to My Make Studio to decorate your own! Our prices are super transparent - pay for what you decorate at our normal prices. We can help you stack cakes if you would like as well. We can also provide boxes for all of your cakes or cupcakes. For a small additional fee, our pasty chef, Chayla Turner, can assist you in decorating as well (especially if you have a lot of cupcakes to ice or a more intricate cake to decorate). This is an awesome way to make a silly grooms cake, bridal shower cake, or bulk cupcakes for all of your guests!

Cocktails for a Cause: Hope House

Cocktails for a Cause: Hope House

If you haven't heard of Cocktails for a Cause you should! This incredible non-profit has been one of our favorite programs since we opened our doors. Cocktails hosts 3 events a year and each event features a different non-profit to donate in kind items too, and a  different woman owned business to celebrate. You guessed it ladies- only girls allowed! Since My Make Studio has been a corporate sponsor donating cupcakes the last several events, we felt it was only necessary to close the studio for the day for all of our staff to attend the fun event. We drank wine, celebrated the featured non-profit - Hope House - and spent quality time as a staff. We will definitely be attending the next event in June as a staff as well so come out and hang out with us and celebrate June's charity - Firefly Autism!
