Bridge Academy

Psalm 32:8

7th - 9th Baking 

Teacher: Aimee Harrison (aorjharrison@comcast.net)


Description:

This new class will be all about baking! We will learn some history about baking and interesting facts along the way. Students will learn how to make homemade fondant and easy ways to decorate cakes. Pastries, pastry cream, cake fillings, buttercreams, cookies, and tarts are just a few things we will be learning about. During the Christmas season we will make sweet breads for the local fire department. It is such a good project to do to show thanks for all the work they do for us in our community. We have done this for the last four years in my culinary classes and the students seem to enjoy using class time to make treats for first responders.

If your student has mild food allergies, I can usually work around the them. However, if your student is gluten sensitive or has Celiac Disease, this class will not be suitable for them.

There are no books for this class.
