Stop by the CUESA Classroom for a cooking demo featuring the seasonal bounty of the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market.
Kara’s Cupcakes is the vision of executive pastry chef, Kara Haspel Lind. Kara always had a love for sweets, but being the daughter of a dentist, it was discouraged by her parents. Despite that, she continued to be a passionate home baker until she realized the importance of following her dreams. She left her job as an advertising sales executive and enrolled in pastry school. Soon a small, word of mouth cupcake catering business was born and quickly became so popular that demand for her cupcakes exceeded her ability to fill the orders and the first Kara’s Cupcakes opened in San Francisco’s Marina District. Even now, a busy mom, and six busy stores selling her famous cupcakes, Kara can still be found most mornings working in the kitchen with her dedicated pastry staff.
All demos take place in the CUESA Classroom (under the white tents in front of the Ferry Building) at 11 am and are free to the public, with recipes and samples for all.
