Decorate Your Own Cupcake?

When I was in Ohio last weekend, my friend let me know of a cupcakery that had a "decorate your own cupcake" bar, with various varieties of cake flavors, frostings, and toppings.

I know that can be done at home of course, but I thought that might be kind of fun to bring some of my nieces or nephews to once in awhile if we're out and about.

Does any such beast exist in the Greater Bay Area?

    1. re: wolfe

      Thanks for that info Wolfe - that could be fun as well for the younguns.

      Actually the place in OH also has classes. But when I heard the idea, the first thing that came to mind was something like the numerous build-your-own frozen yogurt places around here, except cupcakes were replacing froyo.

      They also have a coffee place next door, so I was thinking a java with a custom-built cupcake wouldn't be bad on occasion

    2. There is on in La Jolla!

      I know that doesn't help you, I just had to mention it. Sorry.
