Baking is scientifically proven to reduce stress. Think back to the Covid-19 pandemic when it was common to find that loads of people were taking to their kitchen and baking everything their hearts desired. 

 

My Concept for A Peace of Cake was born simultaneously with Gourmet Girl Custom Cakes 11 years ago. My personal cake story includes my gravitation toward baking during a difficult time in my life. Baking calmed me, it allowed me a way to channel my energy into the production of something positive, visually pleasing, and delicious.

 

During my 11 years of teaching both middle and high school aged youth, I discovered that a program that modeled the Cake Joy that I discovered along my own journey would be beneficial to teens.

A mentoring program that would foster self-expression, resiliency, encourage positive mindfulness and cultivating confidence.

There is nothing like the peace that making cake brings! The time is finally right to share A Peace of Cake with Cleveland's Youth! 

Participants will learn: 

Basic Baking and Cake Decorating

Participants will be instructed in the fundamental elements of baking through the creation of a range of diverse desserts, centered around core concepts:

  • Food cultural origins and history

  • The science behind the ingredients (what they do)

  • Nutrition and food choices

  • Self-expression through optional recipe variation and design aesthetic 

  • Entrepreneurism as it relates to food businesses and culinary career exploration.
