On these cold winter days, sometimes the only way to get cozy and warm, is to snuggle up in the kitchen with some treats. It’s fun to include kids, but we’re not all so skilled in there ourselves, and little hands messing with the batter or next to a hot oven can get overwhelming. Lucky for us, the professionals at Frida’s Bakery in Milton are hosting regular Sunday kids’ classes where you can make treats like ice cream and pop tarts, decorate cookies and cupcakes, and try your hand at making pizza, pretzels, and dinner rolls.

From the folks at Buttermilk Falls Inn and Spa (also in Milton), Frida’s Bakery + Café opened one year ago last October. Kids and families are a big focus at their spacious bakery, where they have a beautiful loft upstairs with children’s playroom, café, and open kitchen area. Owner Robert Pollock has two young children (Frida for whom the bakery is named, and Henry for whom the restaurant Henry’s at the Farm at Buttermilk Falls is named), and he wanted to create a space that would welcome families. Playgroups and parent meet-ups happen regularly at Frida’s, where families can enjoy baked goods and items off the menu.

Most Sundays, the kids’ classes happen in the playroom with one of Frida’s two pastry chefs leading a troupe of kids ages 2-15 for the hour and a half class. Parents can offer support or kids can work independently, and there’s often a tour of the bakery while whatever they’ve made is in the oven. Classes max out at 25 kids, and are often quickly filled. Small groups can book a private kids’ class, like the West Point moms’ group that recently came in with a group of preschoolers. And the bakery’s loft is available for private party rental for $150-250 for 50-100 people. Don’t miss their new Bread & Bottle events for your next date night, featuring a local winery and Frida’s own breads.

Kids’ Classes at Frida’s Bakery + Café, 26 Main Street in Milton: most Sundays at 9a or 10:30a; runs an hour and a half; $20 per child, $15 for siblings; for kids ages 2-15; pre-registration required; caps at 25 students; snack and juice included. Check their Facebook page for March and April class offerings. Contact the bakery to register.
