Students learn while having lots of fun

Children's sugar art lessons and classes

Stacy M. posted this to her Facebook account:

Today was one for the memory books. Chef Heather was awesome. Alissa, Chloe and Elizabeth learned the definition of “armature” and how to make one out of Rice Krispy treats, how to measure ingredients in grams (that’s the way professional chefs do it) and make their own modeling chocolate from scratch and how to apply the modeling chocolate to their armature, how to use sugar art to create the cutest owls you will ever see. They said they are ready for the next class – – candy creations. I think I will be a student with them in the candy class.
