Perfect Baking Can Be a Piece of Cake!
…if you know what you are doing! 4 Days of Baking with Pastry Chef Noa Katzelnik.
How important is the egg size in baking? When do you sift, and why?
Why do you rotate a cake pan half way through baking? How do you make pudding, from scratch? In this baking workshop kids will measure, bake, fill, and decorate their own individual cakes. They will learn how to use the pastry bag with tip. We will make 2 types of pudding: Chocolate and Peaches & Cream.
