I’ve started doing afternoon, once-a-week baking classes at my daughter’s grade school. They’re part of an “afternoon enrichment” program, and they take place after regular classes let out. I’ve got five students signed up out of a possible twelve, which is completely OK by me since real live teaching is a new thing for me. The problem is that we have one hour exactly for the entire class…explaining, mixing, shaping and baking. Which means I need six ideas for projects I can tackle in that amount of time.
Yesterday we did American biscuits, and that went pretty well. As for next week, I scarcely have an idea. But I need six of them in order to make good on my commitment. Any and all input on short-and-sweet baking and pastry projects is welcome…because I need help!
