Last Saturday (8/12/12) we had an amazing group of 22 ladies join us at Alfriston College where we baked and decorated four Christmas themed treats as part of our first ever baking class! We made cupcakes decorated to look like Christmas trees, Mini Cupcakes with Strawberry Santa Hats, Christmas Cookies (which we will share the recipe for tomorrow) and Marshmallow Christmas Puddings.
We had a fantastic time teaching the class and getting to know the attendees who all seemed to have a great time and enjoy the hands on nature of the session. At the end of the day they all left with containers filled to the brim with delicious goodness. We have had some great feedback and have been bouncing ideas off each other for potential future classes.
We would like to thank our fantastic sponsors who all helped to make the class a success; Lewis Road Creamery whose butter makes the best butter cream frosting (and is now available at Countdown stores, Nestle who provided us with the chocolate that went in to the biscuits and was used to decorate the Christmas puddings, The Pretty Baker who gave us the gorgeous cupcake cases and sprinkles as well as providing all attendees with a discount code so they can continue make pretty and delicious baking in their own kitchens, The Vintage Table who provided us with the gorgeous trios and cake stands you've seen in the photos and Fab Meringues who gave us some beautiful meringues to serve as part of the refreshments. We would also like to thank Michelle (Simon's Mum and a fellow blogger) for coming along to take photos and help with the clean up, the Food Technology department at Alfriston College for letting us use their rooms and equipment and of course all the lovely ladies who came along to the class!
If you have any feedback or ideas for future classes we would love to hear them; leave us a comment below.
