How does our virtual camp work?
Our virtual summer camp is designed to encourage your child to learn, create and practice the art of cake decorating in their own safe environment.
We will provide the fondant, icing, and all the edibles needed for an entire week of camp. (Not Including baking supplies, pans or KitchenAid Mixer…)
For pastry baking, we offer two options.
1. Bake at your own pace. Share the experience with the entire family following our Video tutorials and recipes with detailed step by step instructions. Recipes will be posted on the camp website a week before camp starts, so there is plenty of time. Adult supervision is required for this activity. If you prefer you can use your favorite recipe. Totally up to you.
2. For LOCAL campers Get Mia Cake House pastries (only local pickup option available). If baking takes you out of your comfort zone or you are to busy to spend time in the kitchen and clean up the mess, we are here for you. We will have the pastries ready for you to pick up.
Camp site will have all the information on how to prepare for camp, how to set up the table for each project, and practice videos, so the campers can practice on how to work with fondant ahead of the class.
Access to the virtual summer camp area will be secured and campers will be invited into the class once their identity has been verified (This is to avoid “zoombombing”). If campers are divided into “rooms” they will be supervised by Mia Cake House’s staff.
The art of cake decorating requires special tools and supplies. We offer the tools required for the activities at a reduced price.
To participate in the class, students must have ALL the tools in the tools list. You can purchase the tools from Mia Cake House (at a reduced price), at your local cake supply shop, or use the tools you already have.
Some tools are especially made for the classes, like the cookie cutters, and are not optional.
You can pick up tools and supplies for the virtual summer camp from our stores, free of charge, on Thursday or Friday before your session starts.
We also offer shipping options anywhere in the continental USA. Shipping fee starts $17 for 1 session.

Mia Cake House is a place to enjoy and learn the art of baking and decorating. Each child should follow class rules which include, but are not limited to: respecting themselves, peers, instructors, and volunteers. Our activities are step by step classes and children must be able to follow instructions and do as requested.
At Mia Cake House we will not tolerate bullying or defiance toward instructors.
When children choose not to follow any of these rules we will contact the parent/guardian by phone to inform of the incidence
Camp activities require the ability to follow instructions, concentrate, and be seated for periods of 2-3 hours. You as a parent know your child better than anyone to decide if your child will enjoy the activities and
