For those of you who follow our studio, you know we are a family run business. We opened MMS in March of 2015 and so much has changed since then. We already had our incredible son’s, Simon (now 19) and Adrian (now 17), we welcomed Ellie in May of 2016 (now 3), welcomed Eralyn through guardianship in October of 2016 (now 10) and now we are pleased to welcome Miss Sophie on October 6, 2019! Sophie caught us off guard and arrived 6 weeks early but is growing stronger each and every day. We are so excited to have a new little cupcake hanging around the studio soon!
We are so excited for our new home at the Edgewater Public Market. Unfortunately delays have occurred so we are staying at our YALE location through November at this point. We look forward to decorating Spooky Haunted Houses and spending Thanksgiving at our current space. Check out some fun photos of our future home and we will update you as soon as we know when we’re going to move!
This summer has been such a blast, but one of the most amazing parts about it was definitely our summer camp! Like every year we always host our annual summer camp, except this year we added a fun twist. This year we taught our campers how to make cake pops! How exciting? Well i’m not sure if you’re excited about it, but our campers were! They absolutely loved the added skill, and we will for sure make it part of our annual camp routine! Aside from the cake pops, we taught the campers to bake, frosting, and fondant techniques. The camp kids really took home a lot learned, some enjoyed it so much that we saw a few repeat faces!
This was truly an amazing summer, but it had to end eventually. We are so excited to see what next summer brings, especially at the new location. Who knows maybe we will add something new to the camp, either way we will happily await the new year with bright hopes.
We have so enjoyed our 4 1/2 years in South Denver. The neighborhood has been so wonderful and we are grateful for all of the community support that has shown up for our little studio. As our lease comes to an end we have decided we have simply outgrown our current space. We are thrilled to announce that we will be moving My Make Studio to the new Edgewater Public Market that is being built in the Sloan’s Lake neighborhood.
Our very last day at our current location will be some time at the end of October so come on out for a final cupcake or cake at our current spot. We currently anticipate that we will be open at the Edgewater Public Market location early November. However, the exact opening date is subject to change depending on construction or permitting delays.
Check back for details - we’ll announce as soon as we know. Our new space will be in a complete destination marketplace with food, coffee, bars, a brewery, and amazing local shopping.
Some of our new neighbors in the building include:
Barbed Wire Reef
Queen City General Store
Thank you to everyone who has helped grow our sweet studio these past four years. We are grateful for all of the summer camp kiddos, classes taught, gingerbread houses built, birthday parties celebrated and date nights hosted! We can’t wait to host all of your new memories at our new location this fall.
Congratulations Chayla Turner for making it three years with us! We would not be the same studio without you. For those of you who know don’t know Chayla, she is our lovely manager and this week was her three year mark with us. Not only does she do management for us, she is our head class instructor, she teaches summer camp, and she is the lead studio hostess. We are very grateful for everything she’s given us and we can’t wait to see what the next 3 years brings us.
May the 4th was totally with us at My Make Studio this year! Instructor Chaya Turner taught an amazing Star Wars Cake Class. It was probably one of our most exciting classes yet, because everyone was so into it and they all turned out wonderful! Each cake was uniquely crafted and they definitely represented Star Wars well. We even had Chewbacca stop by and make a cake, and he was killing it!
As a Star Wars fan this was not a class to miss. However if you unfortunately did miss it, fret not, as we have a Star Wars Return of The Sixth Cookie Class this evening at 6 PM you can attend. Check in our Classes page to register.
We’ll I hope you all have a wonderful day and we look forward to seeing you soon! Till next time, Kristen.
Hey guy’s sorry its been so long, the studio has been off the charts busy and that also means I’ve been off the charts busy, but I’m here now and I’d love to chat about the studio. We have had so many holidays lately and even more are coming up. We had classes for Groundhogs Day, Valentine’s Day, Galentine’s Day, and Mardi Gras is just around the corner. Our talented teacher Mike started the month with an incredibly cute groundhog cake class and everyones tuned out so good they looked like professional cakes. I would have bought any of them had they been in a bakery.
A few weeks later we had literally five different Valentine’s Day themed classes, one being a kids class taught by instructor Chayla Turner, and another being the anti-Valentine’s class where many of the Galentine’s attended. For those of you unaware of the new Galentine thing, it is where gals get together and celebrate the holiday vs. being with a partner. Each Valentine class was a huge success, with a few completely selling out. Whether it was the Anti-Valentine’s Class or the Love Inspired Unicorn Class everyone left with smiles on their faces and amazing cake creations. It truly was the time of the season for loving.
I can’t wait to tell you guys about our future events, including our Celebration of the 30th anniversary of The Little Mermaid that is soon to come! Stay tuned for more at the studio. Till next time, Kristen.
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
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
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!
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 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.
