Ph.D.-serts | Mom’s Night Out Cake Decorating Class | Tampa Wedding Bakery

We have had the privilege of teaching two Mom’s Night Out Cake Decorating Classes to the amazing ladies of Stroller Strides Tampa!

We taught them how to level, torte, fill, crumb coat the cake, and a few decorating techniques.  After a couple of hours, each mommy went home with her own 6-inch round cake decorated with buttercream ruffles!The ladies with their cakes!

The ladies of the first group worked at different paces so we couldn’t get a group shot of the finished cakes, but here is a small collage of photos taken that night:

The second group of ladies all finished around the same time so here they are with their finished cakes! Stroller Strides Tampa Mom's Night Out Class - Buttercream Ruffles!The girls were dying to get their hands on their cakes and even had them unwrapped and ready to go before Melanie had completed the tutorial.  No problem, that just means they have to smell the buttercream deliciousness that much longer. *wink*

Hard at work on their buttercream ruffles cakes.The best thing about Mom’s Night Out classes is they are all silliness and fun!  …and there might be some wine drinking going on…

The ladies of Stroller Strides Tampa getting down to business...sort of.Regina (left), co-owner of Stroller Strides Tampa, and Liz (right), one of their instructors, had some sweet down time while they decorated their cakes.  Both have 2 young boys at home so they had fun creating something feminine for a change!

Mom and daughter working side-by-side.Do you have a group you would like to take a cake decorating class with? Contact us at to schedule your party!

And on a personal note, Melanie has become very involved with Stroller Strides since the birth of her second daughter a year ago.  It is a great way to get a workout in without having to arrange (and pay for) childcare.  And one of the bonuses she didn’t expect: she met some amazing, amazing women.  If you’re interested in Stroller Strides, check out their website or connect with them on social media:
