Baking Cakes! Yummy Yums!!!


 

The Out-of-School Care children participated in making cakes. They measured the flour, sugar, baking powder, and vanilla essence. They cracked and beat the eggs and prepared the cake pans for the oven. It was exhilarating to work with friends and peers to see which one of the cakes would look the best once they were out of the oven.

 

But this was not the end of the activity as they mixed icing sugar, butter and food color to make icing which had to be placed in the fridge to keep cool.

 

Once the cakes had cooled down, we cut into spring shapes (two butterflies and a tulip), spread icing, cut and devoured the yummy cake.

 

It was certainly a well enjoyed activity and had a great consequence at the end. Hard work does pay off when you get to eat the rewards.
