Do your kids like to give you a messy hand in the kitchen while you're trying to cook or bake? I love the IDEA of kids learning how things are done in the kitchen with a hands-on approach, but when reality hits I'm usually pushed for time, and just want to get out of that hot kitchen ASAP. Of course sticky little fingers just make more work not less, so unfortunately my kids don't get too many opportunities to help me out.

I must say though, baking a chocolate cake is their favourite thing to help me with, and not because of the stirring, but because they can lick the mixing bowl. Someone did tell me not to let them do this because of salmonella poisoning, but it is such an enjoyable part of childhood, something I remember doing, that I just don't have the heart to break the tradition.

I wonder if the children at the Baking Workshops at recently opened Bakerzin Kids at UE Square are allowed to lick the bowl? I think not! I'm sure they will love putting on their chef's hat and apron and trying to keep their fingers out of the bowl though.

Workshops are being held every weekend, and kids can learn to make such sweet treats as chocolate cupcakes, vanilla spongecake with buttercream and vanilla icebox cookies. Yummy! These are not health conscious workshops, but the kids will enjoy them all the more for the fact.

When: Workshops at 10.30am-12noon, or 3pm-4.30pm Saturdays and Sundays.
Cost: $42 per child, which includes chef's hat, apron, badge, certificate and photo.
Come for the second time, bring your hat and apron and do the workshop for $34.
Children under 6 years must be accompanied by parent or guardian. Suitable for children 4-12 years.

Cute photo! I love to bake!! I think that will be a hard thing for me to not be able to do (if we get to come to Singapore) if I can't find ingredients. I'm sure we'll adapt and that's part of the fun of it all.

The baking class sounds like great fun. I hope we'll get to try that one out.

And... we lick the bowl too! :)

Hi!

My kid was invited to the Birthday party at Bakerzin Kids which consist of the workshop plus a nice set up of buffet food and drinks for the kids.

Aside from all the goodies, she also came back with the recipe and a box of her own muffins that became her talking point to every body for the whole day!

Thumbs up for the clean set up and the program!
