Tiny (miniature) Baking camps for kids
Tiny Baking Camp was super fun.
We made tiny cookies, cupcakes, pies & bundt cakes and doughnuts and also built a bunch of different display cases for them. A busy week of measuring, calculating, baking and decorating, with amazing results.
See for yourself:
Baking tiny was interesting and also very satisfying, the baking time was so much shorter, which was appreciated now that it is getting hot here in Texas and eating the tiny bites was really fun.
Each day the kids split in two groups and each group made a batch of dough/batter.
We talked about oven safety, food safety and general food handling protocols.
We also spent time building little shelves and displays with popsicle sticks and hot glue.
The kids were enthusiastic and so engaged it was such a joy teaching them.
Here are a few more images from our week:
All in all a successful week! Congratulations to all the tiny chefs! Here is to tiny baking!
Bake Austin Cookie Extravaganza summer camp 2016
Can I just say OMG! This camp was sooooo much fun! The kids were all AMAZING! So sweet and so curious and we had a blast making one American cookie per day and also one from somewhere around the world.
On day one we made:
Here are just a few of our cookies:
Iced Sugar Cookies Round #2
The kids made some home made oreos. The green ones are filled with mint filling, the white are vanilla and the pink are raspberry flavor. These turned out quite nicely and we made two different style cookies. The kids had a taste test and we discussed the different in each recipe, flavor, mouthfeel and texture. It was a great experience!
Bake Austin takes cupcake decorating classes on the road. We offer birthday parties where we supply the cupcakes, buttercream and fondant. The kids decorate their cupcakes and create unique beautiful cupcakes. In this case we had 11 young ladies. (I didn't have time to take many pictures but here are a few.) Aren't they pretty!
Happy birthday, birthday girl!
We baked tiny pies, cupcakes, bundt cakes and miniature cookies. We also each built our own little bakeshop display case. So much fun!
What a spread! It was so much fun to be part of this magical royal wedding! I mean, look at this beautiful table filled with baked goods created by the wedding party and the wedding cake was created by the bride herself.
This beautiful cake is a gluten free red velvet cake with vegan "cream cheese" icing.
It all started by the bride and her friends coming over to Bake Austin and bringing ingredients, recipes and getting their hands into all the yummy goodness. This is a DIY wedding at it's best!
The fun we had, my goodness. Let a bunch of women loose and get them baking! You will never know what can happen. :)
Beautiful ladies baking for a gorgeous bride!
Everything is gluten free & vegan. Some of the treats are even raw. This is one healthy spread and pretty!
Bake Austin hosted an adult Valentine's class with Kitchen Underground. We had 3 couples over in our home based bakery and baking school. The champagne was flowing and guitar strings were strung.
Here are our lovely couples.
Making molten chocolate lava cake. YUM!
It doesn't get much better. Chocolate, blueberries and whipped cream, topped with a sprig of mint.
I could have not imagined a better night! Everyone was so nice and fun and I would bake with these people anytime again! Thank you!
We had a fun Valentine's cookie class last weekend and we ended up with tons of cookies.
Simple, cute and yummy cookies. All handmade and delicious!
