My family loves cake baking and I decided to help teach my daughter how to bake a cake for her birthday. She was old enough to know that there were different types of cakes, but she wanted a cake with a lot of bright colors. I went to the local cake baking supply store and bought her a very nice cake with a lot of pink frosting.
The next thing I did was to get some Oreo cookies from the local grocery store. Kids usually like chocolate and they really like Oreo cookies. They have a crunchy outside and a soft inside. Kids really seem to prefer the white fondant rather than the natural chocolate. So, that’s what I bought my daughter. I baked a triple batch of chocolate fudge and buttercream frosting for her big birthday.
Cake baking is one of the most popular classes at the local Sunday school and it also seems to be popular with the parents as well. Kids really seem to enjoy learning to decorate a cake and eating the treats. I’ve always thought that the kids at Sunday school have more fun when it comes to playing with the different toys rather than sitting at the table and trying to concentrate on the book. Kids really seem to enjoy having these little contact bunny friends to play with at home.
Baking classes for kids usually get their start when the kids are very young. It is nice to take the younger children and show them how to use the various tools that are used during the recipe. I always like to take one of the older children to the kitchen to demonstrate cooking for one of the other girls in the class. The older students will quickly learn the various utensils that are needed and how to prepare different foods using them. They also learn the value of eating right so that they can grow up to be healthy and happy.
As the children get older, they can move on to classes that focus more on the recipes themselves. I think that there is a lot of satisfaction in being able to cook and bake the same delicious desserts over again. When you are hungry, you do not have to go searching around the kitchen for a box of cake mix, a cup of sugar, and an egg because your favorite baking recipe is right there at your fingertips.
I think the best way to get these baking and pastry classes for kids off to a good start is to keep them interested. Plan ahead and pick out a few recipes that the students will really enjoy and teach them to make as many as possible. This will make each class very special with each and every child that participates. You can also request that the kids wear contact gloves or aprons so that they are protected from the hot ingredients as they are mixing them. The teacher can even come in at the beginning of the class to show the students how to use the various tools that are needed.
The kids will need some help once they reach the age that they are ready for the actual cake baking classes for kids. Get them some molds that they can use to shape their cookies and cupcakes. You can even have them make some simple creations using these molds. You can have the kids complete a simple project and then have them present it to the class in front of everyone. They will be extremely happy to be able to share this with everyone and will receive a lot of positive feedback from their teachers and classmates.
A great dessert recipe is easy to make when you have the kids involved. You can use both standard and peanut butter to create a simple but delicious treat. Just use peanut butter and a little bit of flour to make a crust, then use a bit of food coloring to enhance the appearance of the frosting and drizzle on some more food coloring if you wish. Then top it off with a homemade marshmallow sauce and you have a simple, but a delicious cake that your kids will love.
