Cupcake Fun

We thought we would end the year with some yummy cupcakes. Some of Mrs Schischika's and Miss Fenner's groups joined together to make the cupcakes for all our ESOL students to then ice and decorate. 
It is amazing how much learning happens through hands on experiences like baking. 
We looked closely at what a recipe was, including ingredients and utensils. Through baking we can also build an understanding of measurement.  

When we iced the cupcakes we had a go at using fondant. We learnt that fondant is a sugar paste that you can eat. The students had so much fun molding the fondant into a decoration for the top of their cupcakes. We started out exploring more 2D shapes and then realised we could make more intricate things in 3D shapes. This was so much fun!
