I think my children’s favorite class in our homeschool has to be: Scratch Baking 101. I must say that it is probably one of my most favorite classes to teach as well. I really like to “grade” (taste) the homework – it is a rough job, but one this teacher is up for. In our Scratch Baking 101 we cover a bit of Home Economics, science, math, and photography! It is a FUN, FUN, class, one I’m sure you’d enjoy should you ever visit our family.
Today the children and I made some FABULOUS Dutch Chocolate Buttermilk Cupcakes and paired it with some light and fluffy whipped frosting! I was experimenting with the frosting as I don’t like to use TONS of powdered sugar for frosting. And I must say that my little “science” experiment used very little sugar (only 1 cup as opposed to 8-10 cups) and was divine. It was a great day in our Scratch Baking 101 class! Here are a few photos of our wonderful creations.
What are some of your favorite things to bake as a family? I’d love to hear about it – leave a comment and let me know! Happy baking!
