Baking Academy Trip

imageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimage

The Transition Years thouroughly enjoyed their visit to the Baking Academy in Palmerstown http://www.bakingacademyireland.ie/ last Friday, as did myself and Ms. O’Connell.
The staff were excellent, well prepared and very helpful. The girls learned a lot about covering a cake and made beautiful sugar paste flowers on a plaque, whuich they each took home.
They were also given a fantastic demonstration on how to decorate cupcakes before they proceeded to decorate their own 6 cupcakes with butter cream and various toppings.

A huge thank you to Derek, Mary and Aoife for a very enjoyable morning.
