This baking and candy-making supply store -- one of the best in the metropolitan region -- gives small classes in all facets of the confectionary arts. Although most of the classes last three to six sessions -- among them Cake Decorating (3 sessions, $95), Chocolate Molding and Candy Making (3 sessions, $150), and Gumpaste Ornaments (4 sessions, $375) -- The Duck also offers a five-hour Sunday Cookie Class ($125).
You can also book children's birthday parties and ladies night parties. Call for information.
