Baking Academy Trip


The Transition Years thouroughly enjoyed their visit to the Baking Academy in Palmerstown 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.
