Utilizing tasty recipes developed by talented instructors, Taste Buds allows kids and adults to dig in to the pint-sized pantry and try their hand at easy-to-make and easier-to-enjoy creations under the guidance of a trained professional. Taste Buds offers two different class styles: "Let's Make" features classes for children, with or without caretakers present, and classes for adults only which are BYOB and features slightly more complex cuisine. Taste Buds also boasts classes specifically designed for children with autism and their siblings, tailoring their services to provide a fun-filled family activity. Cupcake Kids is the initial incarnation of Taste Buds, leading various age groups through the steps needed to create their own cupcake creation to take home.

Taste Buds happily accommodates those with dietary restrictions or allergies with advance warning, so make sure to mention any specific issues when booking the class of your choice.
