Sitting in a classroom may be the last thing anyone wants to do while on holiday, but Le Dolci is not your typical school. At owner Lisa Sanguedolce’s “food education studio,” students of all ages and skill levels can learn to decorate cupcakes using buttercream icing and fondant. Each two-hour session ($80 per person) is a hands-on experience with lessons on tinting icing, creating swirls with different piping techniques, or making fondant flowers. Here, you’ll not only acquire a new skill, you’ll also leave with a dozen decorated cupcakes. A special session in honour of the Toronto International Film Festival takes place on September 17 from 1 to 3 p.m. At this “Red Carpet Cupcakes” class, guests are invited to don their finest attire and create movie-inspired decorations like film reels and even a profile of George Clooney!
