I have been asked to teach a short cupcake decorating class for a youth group. There will be 6 - 8 kids (14-18 yrs, girls and boys) and the workshop is for 30 minutes. Four groups like this will rotate through this and other classes.
Anyway, I could really use any good ideas on how to make this fun and help them learn something! What would you do??
Any thoughts will be really appreciated!
Oh, I do have a basic budget, for cakes, frosting, and just a few extras, nothing extravagant!
Basic piped swirl, use candy, sprinkles and glitter for decorations
I used to teach cake decorating to middle school students after school. Lots of fun! Keep it very basic. I did all the prep work before the class. I bought small plastic boxes and equiped them with the necessary items to complete a job. Then just handed it to each student as they came in.
I showed them basic piping including how to write on frosting. Things like piping figures and clowns, a doll cake etc. Eventually I showed them how to make roses and other basic flowers
I can't stress enough, keep it simple! You will be amazed how much they will enjoy it and so will you. If you enjoy being around that age group that is.
