My Make Studio is CLOSING Permanently

My Make Studio is CLOSING Permanently

After 8 years of incredible memories, classes, birthday celebrations, summer camps, and gingerbread house decorating, we have decided to close our doors permanently.

In 2019 as our lease came to an end, we made the bold decision to move to a newer, larger space. We forfeited our 2019 holiday season to move to Edgewater, Colorado in hope to grow and expand. Our beautiful space opened January 6, 2020 only to close it's doors just weeks later due to COVID 19.

As a small business, it was already impactful to lose one holiday season. But then to lose almost an entire year after that was just more than we could manage. We pivoted with purpose as we designed our kits to be shipped nationwide. We broke out of our in person store mold, got creative, and hit the UPS store with ambition and a new dream. We quickly learned that we were not the only ones greatly impacted by COVID 19 (obviously). Vendors we worked with were struggling to keep materials and staff as a result of the global devastation. Factories that made some of our products were shut down for so long that they faced great delays and damages once the machines were turned back on. One of our vendors even suffered a factory fire as a result of the equipment malfunctions. Still we persisted and we fought. We held on through the holiday season one final time before making the devastating decision to close.

These past 8 1/2 years have been some of the best in my life. I became a business owner, wife, mother (many times over) and boss. I pushed myself to limits I didn't know were possible. I learned countless lessons about life, mentorship, business and community.

There aren't words to describe the relationship I have built with my staff. To the incredible Chef Chayla - You are one of the most talented, creative, loyal, hardworking, passionate people I know. I'm so honored to be your friend. I will be your #1 cheerleader wherever life takes you next.

To the families who spent time with us, joined us for classes, hosted parties, sent your kids to camp...I am so grateful. I enjoyed every minute of it. I truly mean that.

We will continue selling kits through mid January so get your kit while supplies last. We will also be selling "Mystery Boxes" that we'll fill with cake mix, icing tips, icings, fondants at random so get yourself some sweetness.

Of all the lessons learned from My Make Studio I hope you never forget...

Stay Creative

Host the Sweetest Thanksgiving in Town with My Make Studio's Thanksgiving Feast Cupcake Kit

Host the Sweetest Thanksgiving in Town with My Make Studio's Thanksgiving Feast Cupcake Kit

If your family is anything like the My Make Studio family, then you know Thanksgiving is all about FOOD. In our family, Thanksgiving is a time to come together by sharing stories from the year, watching great movies, playing fun games, and getting competitive in the kitchen. You see, I am the oldest of three kids. My younger brother and I are extremely competitive, especially in the kitchen. To take things to the next level: my mom, Uncle and Grandmother all went to cooking school. While we love cooking all of the Thanksgiving classics, our true favorite always comes down to desserts. Who gets crazy with pumpkin? Who sticks to the classic apple pie? Who combines flavors and textures into something completely new? It's always fun to see what creative concoctions my family comes up with.

After years of healthy family competition in the kitchen, I took the cake (get it??) a few years ago when I showed up to Thanksgiving with My Make Studio's Thanksgiving Feast Cupcake Kit. My entire family couldn't stop giggling over every cupcake. Whether you're a sweet or savory fan, there's something for everyone in this kit. Of course at My Make Studio we make it really easy for you to succeed with our kits as well. We include the cupcake mix, the cupcake liners, the cupcake pan, the icing tips, icings, candies and a booklet for you to follow along with. We even have a YouTube video for you to watch. So, if you're joining family or friends this Thanksgiving, be sure to show up with the most creative and delicious dish out there. But of course, don't just pick one dish, bring the entire feast!

On behalf of the entire My Make Studio family, we hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving and as always..

My Make Studio's Monster Cake Kit Celebrates Sophie's 3rd Birthday

My Make Studio's Monster Cake Kit Celebrates Sophie's 3rd Birthday

Monsters aren't JUST for Halloween!

Happy 3rd birthday to my Sophie monster!!! As a cake decorator and mother of 4 great kiddos, it's so hard to choose how to decorate their cakes each year. My youngest, Sophie, is often referred to in our house as our "Soph Monster" when she's being extra silly. It seemed fitting to use My Make Studio's Monster Cake Kit to bake and decorate her cake this year. Our kit came with chocolate cake mix - Soph's favorite - the cake board, icings, tips, lollipops, candy eyes and of course gummy teeth to create the silliest monster in town. Check out Soph's face as she picks the gummy monster teeth off and feeds them to her Grandpa at her birthday celebration.

Order your My Make Studio Monster Cake Kit at www.mymakestudio.com - or check out the other 50 designs. There's cupcake kits too!

And as always...

Fall in Love with Our Birch Tree Cake Kit

Fall in Love with Our Birch Tree Cake Kit

When I think of fall I think of all things pumpkin, leaves changing, scarves and BIRCH TREES! My Make Studio is based in Colorado and we're a small mom and...mom business (ha!). Driving up to the mountains and seeing the fall foliage is one of our favorite times of the year. The Aspen trees are just stunning as well as the changing leaves preparing for winter. So many weddings are hosted this time of year in Colorado and decorating a cake like a Birch Tree became a pretty popular trend in the mountains. As Chef Chayla and I design cakes we always try to incorporate our lives, our home, and things we love so it felt so appropriate to design a Birch Tree Cake Kit. This cake kit is really special because you can customize it however you want. Put the flowers in different spots, write something different or nothing at all, create your own designs with the red fondant. 

Chef Chayla had just gotten engaged when we designed this cake together so naturally we wrote "C + T" on the side of the cake for Chef Chayla and her fiance Travis. What will you make this cake for? A birthday? Anniversary? Wedding? Or just because? It's a great cake for all occasions! You can follow along on our YouTube video or decorate on your own. Don't forget to share your photos by uploading them for us to see on the Chef Chayla page. We'll even ship you a Baker's Certificate! 

While you decorate, don't forget...
