Yesterday all of our mini chefs gathered in preparation for the last session of Cooking Classes! Our choice of recipe for this week was fruit tarts where we got to create and decorate our very own Easter masterpieces consisting of bunny faces with sprinkle covered marshmallow bunny ears, strawberry lace whiskers and blueberry eyes. Aprons intact, we then began the method of making our own shortcrust pastry consisting of flour, eggs, butter and sugar which we combined together in our mixing bowls. Once we had mixed all of our ingredients together a dough was formed which we then rolled out on our mats ready for precise shaping with our dough cutters. Six meticulously shaped dough circles later, all thats was left to do was to put them in the oven and patiently wait for them to reappear freshly crisp and risen. As our pastry tarts cooled down we used our creative design skills to then decorate our cream filled pastry tarts with bunny faces just in time for Easter! It was apparent that each week of our cooking class lessons had all contributed towards the progression of our newly learned cookery practical skills. A great individual and team effort everyone – well done and we will see you for the next round of our cooking class lessons!
