Summer Baking and Cake Decorating Camps

It’s here!  Registration for our amazing Baking and Cake Decorating Camps for kids and teens is now open for 2024!

Purple Cow Cakery's Kids and Teen Camps are designed to build confidence in the kitchen while providing a fun outlet to let your aspiring pastry chef's creativity shine.   Bakers are grouped together by age, with friends or siblings.  They will work independently and with partners.  Each session is limited in participants.  Bakers do not need prior experience with cake decorating or baking to enjoy this experience. 

Join Purple Cow Cakery for our summer baking camps and learn to bake and decorate with owner and cake designer, Nicole Contursi.

We’re so excited to create, bake, and yes, even wash a few dishes with your bakers. Your bakers will have the opportunity to work with our professional pastry instructor and baking counselors to feed their quest for knowledge or even to stoke a new interest on how food really bakes. We’re here to encourage and champion our young bakers and to help them learn from kitchen masterpieces and yes, even some kitchen disasters. We’re true believers that learning is doing and we’ve got our young bakers baking every day with gusto and enthusiasm.


Your bakers will bring home their delicious baked goods and custom bakes daily.  For the decorating camps, we'll also provide each baker with a set of cake decorating tools to continue practicing at home all the new skills they learned throughout the week.
