Calling all Young Bakers and Would-Be Bakers! Booking now for Summer Baking Camps being held in July and August 2017 in the Dublin 7 / Dublin 15 and adjacent areas. The Baking and Cookery Camps and Classes are very enjoyable and educational hands-on activity camps for girls and boys who enjoy baking and cooking. All the work of making and baking and cooking is done by the children themselves. All ingredients and utensils are supplied and children just need to bring a packed lunch. Children attending the camps will learn a variety of baking and cookery skills and techniques, which they can then utilise themselves at home.
All bakers and cooks are provided with aprons for the duration of the camps and are taught about hygiene and safety in the kitchen. Bakers / Cooks will learn how to make a range of pastries, biscuits, cakes, breads, scones, cookies and gingerbread men etc, as well as baking and decorating cupcakes with a variety of buttercream and fondant icings. Bakers are taught different skills and techniques involved in a variety of recipes such as kneading and proving of bread dough, the various methods of making different types of pastry among other skills. Each child will get a folder at the start of the week and then they will add all the recipes that they make to it as the week progresses.
Best of all, bakers get to take home everything they make!
