On Wednesday Cookery Club were lucky enough to be joined by Mrs Wade and Mrs Maurice from Vanilla Cake Design (www.vanillacakedesign.com). They brought a huge array of cakes, chocolate, sweets and materials to decorate cupcakes and cake pops in festive designs.
The children were taught how to make reindeer, snowmen and polar bears using the sweets in ingenious ways, for example to create hats and eyes before having a go at each of the designs themselves. The children experienced piping with chocolate and buttercream icing and got to take at least four different creations home.
We want to give our huge thanks to Mrs Wade and Mrs Maurice for their time and generosity providing all the ingredients and materials. They were fabulous teachers and we all learnt a lot (including the teachers who came to see the excitement).
