The Specialty Shop is home to just about every kind of cake, cookie and candy making product you can think of. None of which will do you any good unless you know how to use them, of course. With that in mind, the shop features a stable of hands-on classes designed to get you familiar with the methods, equipment and ingredients of all things confectionary. Topics cover cookie painting and bouquets, hard candy, chocolates, gingerbread houses, pies and cake decoration. They've even got a wedding cake class for the truly intrepid—or insane. Classes range from $25-$50 and can be a one-day deal or a part of a weekly series.
