I have a young friend who wanted to learn to bake a chocolate cake. Of course, I was more than willing to teach (we were going to have cake, right?).
Our resource guide (i.e. cookbook) was the Fannie Farmer Junior Cookbook (read more on the cookbook here). Our tools include the usual items…cake pan, hand mixer, ingredients…plus a pink and purple homemade apron (learn how I made it here) which did come in handy when a bit of the batter went rogue.
Special treats included an autograph from the 2012 Chopped winner Tabb Singleton and, of course, a graduation diploma for successful completion of the course.
We had a great morning, and our cake turned out perfectly! I would encourage you to offer cooking classes to the youngsters in your life. It makes for a great experience. If you are the young person’s mom or grand mom, it will be a lifelong memory that they will cherish.
