Day 3 at Kid's Cooking Camp

Finally we are decorating cupcakes!  So many ideas, so little time.  The buttercream they made yesterday was beautiful, but so fragile.  A few minutes in the piping bag with hands on and it was turning soft.  We had to work fast.  Sugared flowers were the favourite.






My kitchen will never be the same!  Blue and chocolate icing in my hardwood floors, sugar here and there and 'who knows what' in my fridge!

It was an intense couple of hours and the gang was ready for a little break.








 Silly faces!
 Happy conversation!
Laughter!










And Greek Salad for lunch.  Only 2 more days...sigh!  It is exhausting (washing aprons and tablecloths every night, setting out the mise en place) but so much fun.  My house will be so quiet when they have finished.

See you tomorrow!

  5. All of my birthday cakes are frosted and decorated with buttercream frosting. I take little bowls, color them, and chill to it will be a little easier to decorate - not a lot, just a little. I think you have to have a shortening base for frosting to hold its shape well, but then you sacrifice flavor....

    Glad the girls are having such fun!
