Christmas workshops at Logan Hyperdome library.
Just before Christmas I taught 3 days of classes with 2 days in a row at my local Hyperdome library.Both days had 2 classes the first being parent and children decorating cupcakes together and the second class Teenage cupcakes.
The attendees had to bring 4 cupcakes each and some had even got up early and baked beautiful cupcakes that morning.All the frostings and icings are provided by myself and this year I decided to bring a Ronald McDonald"s House collection box and I asked for donations as I do not charge the libraries for any of the items and tools I provide and I was pleased to see the collection box fill up at the end of the 2 days! so for those that attended well done and keep this beautiful creativity going.
Thank you to Barbara and my son Adam for assisting me on those days and for keeping the coffee and the laughter flowing!
The 2 teenager classes attendees, had there names placed in a raffle and Laurel aged 16 who had just completed year 12 at Springwood High School, won the prize and attended a full days class baking cupcakes the following week with another group of eager cupcake bakers in my cake studio.
There challenge this year was to bake 8 cupcakes, ganache cover with sugarpaste and they created a beautiful display of cupcakes on a decorated display board to take home.Beautiful results.
