We started with "making" the truffles. They had chosen 2 flavors for the group of 10 of us to make. They had the ingredients made ahead of time. I was at the brownie table so they had premade brownies and a chocolate ganache binder. They showed us how they crumble the baked product and what texture they mix the "dough" to. Then we rolled them into the balls. At this point they brought out truffles that they had already rolled and were chilled to show us how they dip them. We each were able to dip 1 truffle (because the technique he used was way too difficult for what we were doing). They then showed us a sample platter of all of their truffles (how they were decorated) and we were given a sampler box of 4 truffles. And of course, we were allowed to shop their inventory for additional boxes if we wanted to. It was a fun time- if it wasnt for the wine and appetizers, I would have said that $40 was a little much. But it was a great time for my mom and I.
Wow, that sounds like fun! It was also helpful...so thank you!
I am putting the details together to offer cake pop classes throughout the summer. I figured the costs of supplies & everything, and I plan on charging a fee of $35 per person.
I will provide all the supplies & guests will leave with about 1 dozen cake pops in a nice arrangement. I also plan to offer refreshments.
I make my cake pops with scratch cake & buttercream, but I can't decide if I want to do the same for the class or do more of the basic cake pop 101.
