Cake Decorating Club for Summer Term commenced on Thursday 1st March. So far the group made up of fifteen Year 7, 8 & 9 students have participated in two workshops. During the first workshop the students learnt a technique called flooding, which is used to decorate cookies. The girls practiced this technique with on plain biscuits using various royal icing colours. They picked it up very quickly and managed to create some impressive patterns on their biscuits.
In the second workshop, the girls got straight into decorating their unicorn cookies. Mrs Rossetti prepared white, pink, purple, blue and green royal icing and provided us with some sprinkles. It was great to see how creative the students can be and how well they did using this difficult technique! Our next workshop is on Thursday 29th March and we are looking forward to making fondant unicorn horns and ears for our unicorn cupcakes and also learning some buttercream piping techniques to create some Easter cupcakes.
