My younger two daughters attended the Cakes and Bakes course for 7 - 11 year olds at Cambridge Cookery School over half term. Instead of cakes they learnt to make and bake two different bread doughs.
Liz and Tracey were their tutors, patient and calm throughout, explaining each recipe and process along with alternative ways to use and adapt the recipes.
There were 12 children on the 2 hour course and they worked in pairs. My two daughters worked with other children as they were in no mood to work together. The first recipe was a basic white bread dough which was made in to filled calzone and a Tear and Share loaf coated with seeds. The second recipe was a sweet, saffron infused dough made into a plaited ring and decorated with coloured crushed sugar chunks.
I was expecting my daughters to bake a cake but both were happy with the bread making and baking practise. This course would suit those who don't bake at home very often or those who want to get to grips with baking breads. The course cost £45 for 2 hours of tuition and tasty treats to take home.
