Butter Lane is devoted to making you the perfect cupcake. With a focus on pure ingredients like real vanilla beans, pure cocoa and dark chocolate, we’re giving foodies something to sink their teeth into besides straight sugar (although we have some of that, too!).
We think of it as cupcakes for grownups.
At Butter Lane we offer both French and American buttercream icing. What's the difference? French buttercream is made with egg whites, butter and granulated sugar, while American buttercream is made with confectioners sugar and butter. The French is more like a meringue while the American is like the familiar icing we all know. Can't decide? Try some of both and let us know which one you like!
Excellent Couple activity!
My boyfriend and I really enjoyed this class -- it was a fun, sweet date night. It's definitely more of a baking 101 rather than an advanced techniques class, but the instructor was great and we left with more cupcakes than we could handle so all in all a good time!
The facilitator was great and helped make the class idiot-proof by measuring out the required ingredients. Cupcakes tasted great and we had fun!
This class was great! The instructor was really friendly and helpful. It was a great introductory class and nice to get 9 cupcakes to take home afterwards. A good value for the price!
So much fun and the cupcakes were awesome!
Small class. Only downside was that the instructor kept going in and out of the lesson to talk to her coworkers as the lesson takes place in an open kitchen of the bakery.
The class was OK. I personally learned some things that I did not know prior to the class. The instructor was good and knowledgeable. I feel that the class should have been longer, perhaps 3 hours instead of 2 hours. There was 3 recipes on the board for us but we were only able to make 2 of the 3 recipes. All in all the class was OK; I did learn something.
Awesome class, instructor was awesome too and cupcakes were delicious. Fun and informative!
This is the 2nd Course Horse baking class I've taken. The first one was terrific -- hands on, excellent instruction, challenging subject (croissants). This cupcake class was -- unfortunate. The instructor didn't seem to like his job. Perhaps he was having an off night? Mostly, he just came across as disinterested -- gave us his CIA credentials, talked at us, seemed to be on autopilot. To set the tone -- he told us to go wash our hands before we started. Absolutely. Only, there was no soap at the sink. When we asked him, he responded, "Do it like your ancestors did. RINSE!" He did't get us any soap. It made us wonder about the rest of the sanitary conditions at this bakery. For a warm and sweet subject, the experience was not.
