Decorating Cupcakes

Mr Barks was wandering around in the big marquee. He told my friends and I that if we wanted to, we could go to room 12 and be taught how to decorate cupcakes, with Mrs George, Mrs Barks and Mrs Walters. And so we did.

When we arrived in room 12 we had to sanitise up to our elbows(well that’s what they said). After that we split up into groups of four and sat on one of the chairs. At the tables were cupcakes ready for us to ice. Mrs George was teaching us how to use fondant (icing).

First we used butter cream for the glue so that he fondant sticks. We had to put white icing as the background and started to use colours for at the top. Mrs George gave us leaf cutters and flower cutters to make shapes.

We started straight away because we were eager and so the fondant wouldn’t dry up before we were done. I took ages to decorate one of my cupcakes but when I was finished and took a bite of my cupcake and thought, wow this is delicious.

So then we went back out side and said thank you to all the teachers who helped us decorate these cupcakes. I really liked doing that activity. Even if it was a one time thing.
