Santa’s workshop is not in the North Pole. All over Melbourne, it’s hidden in plain sight, along the city’s streets, alleys, and laneways.

Here’s your official map to places where happiness is made visible. Enjoy! 🎄🎅🎁

Christmas Cupcakes by Bake Boss

Nothing says Christmas like holiday-themed desserts! And what could be better than baking classes starring sweet, little cupcakes topped with a tiny wreath, a tinseled tree, or even Santa and his elves? This December, Bake Boss brings you Christmas classes for both kids (Wednesday, 19 Dec 6:00PM, $49.00) and grown-ups (Thursday, 20 Dec 6:00PM, $69.00), where you’ll learn to use fondant to decorate too-good-to-eat cupcakes.

Feel like celebrating Alt-Christmas instead? Bake Boss has a class for you, too!

Handmade Gifts by Art Tree Creations

There’s something for everyone in this workshop. In a single afternoon, you’ll make beeswax reusable wraps (perfect for your eco-conscious friend), marble baubles (knick-knack collectors will love these), God’s eye wall decor (just for her with the eclectic taste), plus something for your own use this gift-giving season: abstract gift cards, tags, and wrapping papers!

An absolute steal, don’t you agree? Art Tree Creations, incidentally, is also known for their resin painting classes, and we all know how much everyone loves those.
