New Year, New Fun at My Make Studio!

Hey guys, how was your New Years? Ours was pretty great, and we even ended the year with our 100th class! We also hit our 200 mark for selling gingerbread houses so we are pretty excited. 2018 was a pretty good year for us, we started kids classes which was a huge success, we went to a couple of markets, and even made it to the media a few times via news, magazines, and radio! It’s been a great year for us, and we are excited to see what 2019 holds for us.

Just this past weekend we had one of our kids classes taught by Chayla Turner, and it was amazing per usual. She knocked it out of the park teaching them to make dog cupcakes, flower cupcakes ,and more including some really cool and fun techniques. The whole class was wonderful and it was so nice to have the kids learning side by side with their parents. We are really excited for next months kids cupcake class because it is valentines themed and the cupcakes are super cute.

This year has so much planned already and we are so excited to share it with all of you! Stay tuned for more happening at My Make Studio. Till next time! -Kristen

My Make Studio and The Modern Eater Steal The Show

My Make Studio and The Modern Eater Steal The Show

Lately it’s been mad with creativity and fun at the studio. This past weekend we not only had fun at the studio, but we also had fun attending our annual Gingerbread House Competition, teaming up with iHeart Radio’s, The Modern Eater. Now this isn’t your typical gingerbread competition because all the contestants are local brewery’s, so if you haven’t had the pleasure of listening the The Modern Eater and don’t understand how they are connected, then let me explain. Not only do they sponsor a few local brewery’s, but they also go around doing events for brewery’s while putting it all on the air. So, with that being said, they got to enter the competition and like last year we were invited to team up with them, so it was time to make an amazing plan.

Now I know what your thinking, how hard can it be to come up with a cool design for a gingerbread house? Well the answer is, HARD! Last year we even made the entire Denver cityscape and we only got second place, so we knew this year was going to be a tough one. After brainstorming and throwing a couple ideas out the window, we finally came to the conclusion of making The Modern Eater’s kitchen. It took a couple of tries and a couple of walls ripped out, but we finally came up with the perfect design.

So Saturday the 15th was the big day! There were so many other people at the competition but we were confidant because no matter what happened, we would be happy (but we really did want to win.) How the judging works is everyone votes on whose house is the best. Our team was pretty confident but it wasn’t over, so we took the time to relax and checkout everyone else’s house while also spending some time talking on the air. By the end of it we had realized we did it, we actually won the competition! Of course we let The Modern Eater keep the trophy but we got some good pictures with it.

We can’t wait till next year’s competition, and hope we do just as good if not better.

Till next time, Kristen

Winter Fun at My Make Studio!!

It’s fun fun fun at the studio this winter! We have had so much happen this winter, from the gingerbread houses, to the classes; This winter has been super lit and it’s only just begun! But recently, we had our first ever kids holiday class. With kids classes being new to My Make Studio in general, this one was a huge success. So huge in-fact that we were sold out, with every single chair sat! We were so excited with our turn out and with the joy we were able to give to so many people. I think the kids were very pleased with their results as well. Our instructor Chayla Turner taught the kids to make super cute cupcakes including a fine frosty the snowman and even the Grinch! I’m not sure if everyone knew they were making the Grinch but they all lit up like Christmas when it was time to make him. Needless to say My Make has been having a great time this winter and I can’t wait to share our future event’s with you all. Until then stay warm friends!

It was so much fun, we loved it!

Gobble, Gobble, Gobble It's Turkey Time!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone, I hope you’re all spending it well! We at My Make are closed today but we sure enjoyed getting ready for the holiday this weekend with Mikaila Riehm and her Turkey Carving Cake Class. It was such a blast and everyone was so impressed with their cakes. In fact many didn’t even know they had it in them. “I’m surprised it turned out to actually look like a turkey, and the peas and carrots were surprisingly easy to make!” -Anonymous.

During this class everyone learned how to not only decorate their cake to look like a turkey, but they also learned to carve the cake, crumb coat the cake, and fondant the cake. This is such a treat because there was so much to learn and so unlike any of our other classes we’ve ever had. The best part is many were able to use their cake for their Thanksgiving desert today, so many had two turkeys at the table.

We are so pleased with how our classes are going and we are so excited to see what comes this upcoming winter. Stay tuned for more happening at My Make Studio, and stay safe this Thanksgiving!

My Make Studio Has It's First Kids Class!

My Make is up to new things again! Recently we hosted our first ever Kids Class. I’m pleased to say it was a huge success, having 17 decorators. Instructor Chayla Turner taught the kids how to make unicorn cupcakes, spaghetti cupcakes, marshmallow flower cupcakes, and emoji face cupcakes! Now i’m not sure if you know how many kiddos enjoy unicorns but let me be the one to tell you there is a bunch, and they loved the mess out of that cupcake! But that’s not the only hit of the night, everyone lit up with excitement as they discovered they were going to be decorating a food cupcake and being spaghetti lets be real who doesn’t love spaghetti.

My favorite part of the day was when I announced we were going to be making spaghetti cupcakes, and the entire room gasped in excitement.
— Chayla Turner

In whole the class was amazing to say the least and we will definitely be teaching another Kids Class soon. Check our Events page to see when our next kids class will be, and just to see what is happening at My Make Studio. Until next time, Chow!

My kids had an absolute blast!

My Make Studio Has Become Totally Wicked!

My Make Studio Has Become Totally Wicked!

This week, instructor Chayla Turner totally knocked us off our feet with her devilishly amazing Gory Cake Class! This class brought some new faces and some old but all were thrilled with their cakes! However, this wasn’t your typical cake, as it allowed our MAKE artist to explore their wicked side and not feel guilty for making it messy.

Another thing that separated this class from the others is the fact that everyone was able to completely fondant and sculpt the cake to their liking where as most cakes have specific instructions. It’s really nice to see faces that enjoy the spooky season as much as we do.

One of my favorite things learned was how to make a bloody brain.
— Ella
It’s fun and exciting! It’s like Willy Wonka’s factory but with cake and candy!
— Ally

I’m so glad October isn’t over and we still have some more spooky classes left. Stay tunes to see what else is happening in the studio!

I learned so much, it was all so cool!

Chayla and Mikaila Slay the Studio!

It is no trick what’s been going on at the studio lately, but it sure is a treat! We have recently been hosting a significantly more classes than ever, making this October a real treat. This month our fine teachers Mikaila and Chayla have outdone themselves with their amazing classes, and the month isn’t even over! From the Halloween Unicorn Class, to the Halloween Cookie Class we have had so many happy faces in the studio, and not to mention the Caramel Drip Cake Class. Each one of our MAKE artist made such beautiful creations!

We had so much fun! That was awesome.

My Make has been teaching classes for over two years now starting with our wonderful instructor Chayla Turner. She brought her decorative skills from Oklahoma and we couldn’t have been more thrilled that she did! September 8th, 2016 she taught her first class and she’s been going strong since! Early this year we got the pleasure of working with Mikaila Reihm, and recently she too has started teaching classes. We at the studio are so happy with the turn out they are having and can’t wait the see how wicked the rest of the month gets!

Recently Chayla taught one of her highly recommended Geode Cake Classes. Of course it was an amazing class but we weren’t the only ones to think so. The 303 Magazine thought so as well, so they decided to write an article on the studio but more specifically the super cool Geode class. We are so proud of our instructors and the work they are doing in the studio.

Stay tuned for more happening at My Make Studio we’ll be sure to keep it interesting!

Willy Wonka and the Cupcake Battle!

Willy Wonka and the Cupcake Battle!

Recently we held one of our wonderful cupcake battles featuring Willy Wonka! We had people of all ages come and enjoy this wonderful event. Since the theme was Wonka they had to incorporate Wonka into each of their cupcakes judged and had to involve some type of Wonka candy. We did provide them with Wonka candy options, as we didn’t expect them to bring their own! We aren’t that heartless. Then we gave everyone an hour to decorate 4 cupcake. There were so many wonderful cupcakes, it sure was a tough one to judge! In the end we had to pick winners from each age group and they couldn’t have been happier.

Our staff also enjoyed the event, with everyone coming dressed for the occasion. It was truly a great time, in fact it was such a great time we are planning on doing another battle sometime soon. Stay tuned in our Events Page to see whats happening next. Until next time fellow Makers!

It fun because it was scrumdiddlyumptious!

Mikaila's First Class at the Studio

    This Friday our newest instructor Mikaila Riehm, taught her first class for My Make Studio!  It was a great turnout, with about a dozen people in attendance.  Many of you may have been to our previous classes with instructor Chayla Turner, but this class was a bit different.  Unlike our other classes, Mikaila taught everyone cake making 101 including how to shape, frost, and fondant the entire cake before decorating.  Everyone loved it! Afterwards she gave them tip knowledge allowing them to create beautiful cakes. It was such a unique experience and many said they would be back with friends. 

It was fun, I surprised myself!
— Kristine
Great way to spend a Friday night.
— Stephanie
For a cake nerd it was fabulous.
— Megan

    She plans to teach another Cake 101 Class November 29th.  Until next time, check below for some of the pics from the event.

My Make Studio's Night out at Denver's Milk Market!

    This week has been an eventful one for My Make Studio! Yesterday, August 30th we had another on site event at Denver's Milk Market, but this time it was a little different.  Not only did people come to decorate cupcakes, but they were also a part of our class instructor Chayla Turner's flower decorating class.  Those that attended learned how to make roses, daisies, and even flowers made of marshmallows!  It was a big hit, our class was fully booked and the participants loved their results!

This was so fun! I didn’t know i was so creative! Bringing the whole family.
— Joann
If you love art this is an overload of fun! 100% worth it.

    Aside from all the decorating our ladies got to explore the market and try some of the food and drinks!  They sure had a wonderful night and we hope to attend more markets in the future!

    Stay tuned for more blogs. Until next time!

You have to do this again. I’m bringing all my girlfriends!
