On your marks, get set, bake!
Friday 16 October 2020
This week with Mrs Lee, Year 7 Practical Cookery softened, whisked and stirred their appreciation for National Baking Week 2020.
Baking week was established in 2007 to encourage people of all abilities to enjoy baking. As well as being a useful life skill, many of our girls find baking to be hugely creative and relaxing. Furthermore, it's a chance to remember that life is not always about the final dish, but what we learn getting there!
Using Mrs Lee’s very own recipe, our ambitious bakers were busy making ‘Amazing Chocolate Cupcakes’. Not only was the cookery suite a hive of activity, but the corridors were filled with the delicious aromas you would expect to come from the Bake Off tent!
As the cupcakes baked for 20 minutes, the girls applied themselves to the clean up operation, leaving Mrs Lee's room spick and span. The cupcakes were a triumph, not a soggy bottom in sight and hopefully some made it home for parents to enjoy!
Here is the cupcake recipe if you would like to try baking them at home:
