Indulge in some creative fun
Easter is synonymous with many things, of which chocolate eggs are a favourite that both children and adults alike will indulge in over the Easter break. For something a bit more substantial, there's Easter cupcakes and cake pops that you can make yourself before indulging in your handy work.
The following companies have some classes with an Easter theme that will have your family and friends gushing over your creativity:-
From 1130am on 23rd March, roll up to Brett Whiteley Place in Mount Street at North Sydney and decorate delicious cupcakes with themed decorations that include chicks and nests. No baking is involved on your part, just do the fun bit but get in quick. It's on until 2pm or until the cakes (400 of them) run out.
Cupcake boxes will be provided and, best of all, it's free.
At this company, during the school holidays, the kids can make either cake pops on 19th April or cupcakes on 20th April. Two different times are available for each class and they will learn how to prepare the cakes, how to use Belgian chocolate, techniques on dipping cake pops or piping onto cupcakes and decorating with sprinkles and fondant shapes.
Working with silicone chocolate moulds and fondant cutters, a variety of colours and embellishments to add, will have them envy of those at home.
Everything they need is provided as well a reusable box to take away.
The cost for each class is $60 each with duration 1.5hrs. It is suitable for both boys and girls, aged 7-15yrs.
Another cake pops class running is the Little Chicks Cake Pops which goes for 2 hours and costs $120.00. This one is suitable for ages 16 & up and is similar to the aforementioned class in what they learn. It provides tips and tricks with recipe sheets to take home, refreshments and a gift box for their creations. It's available on the 2nd, 8th and 9th April.
The location is Shop 1, 167 Avenue Rd, Mosman. Parking for up to 2hrs is available outside the store front or at the rear in Raglan St West car park.
A bit further afield on the Central Coast, Masterchef Australia Season 1 winner Julie Goodwin is putting on Easter cupcake baking and decorating classes for both primary and high school students. The younger ones will decorate whilst the older ones will bake and decorate.
Piping buttercream will be learnt and a variety of cake toppers will be made using fondant. They take home their masterpieces along with the recipes to make them again at home.
They're both on 12th April and cost $45 each. The class for younger children is on from 10am-11am and parents are asked to stay in the kitchen where they will be treated to morning tea. The class for the older high school students is on from 2pm-4pm.
The venue is the Loyal I.T. Building, Lower Level, 370 Mann St, North Gosford. Parking can be found in Dwyer Street, a short stroll away.
