Baking Fun at Creative Culinaire

[ Sponsored ]

Everyone loves a cake, except my no2 Boon Yee :p
(he does not fancy ice cream too hee hee)

What is even better than tasting the cake, is baking it yourself.
We jump at the opportunity when Creative Culinaire invited us down for a baking class.

Looking back at the photos, the kitchen at Creative Culinaire offers families fantastic bonding moments.

The smiling Chef Judy, is a big ingredient for our cheerful workshop πŸ™‚
She is so motherly and passionate about her craft and Judy always has this smile.

Truly, a HAPPY baker will prepare the best pastries as everything comes from her heart.

After her Rainbow Cake demonstration, it was our turn to hands-on. And kids were super eager to stir their baking powder, break the eggs, and mold the dough.

I am sure all the kids at the baking workshop agree the best segment is getting involved in the baking process (making a mess of your table is optional). Before we start, Chef Judy reminded us the importance of being neat and organised so that we can find our ingredients and utensils easily.

Chef Judy jokingly mentioned if we make mistakes in our baking steps, we had to eat our own cake. She drew a parallel in life parenting.

Kids sometimes had to learn about mistakes the hard way, despite parent’s repeat reminders (不听老人言).

Layering one by one, love the vibrant colours.

Kids were amazed at how we can mix and match to get a different colour. Baking class was a good opportunity to refresh our science (Chemistry) understanding.

It was up to us to decide the tone of the colour (dark or light), hey who say Rainbow cake must follow a certain order? Freedom and creativity for families to explore.

Yellow + Red = Orange
Blue + Yellow = Green
Red + Blue = Magenta

Kids’ eyes brighten as we create one more layer for our Rainbow cake.

Step by step, workflow in procession.

Our Rainbow cake forming up.

While adults do the piping and decoration, I caught the kids gleefully picking up all the cake crumbs. The bowl of stars (decorations) was depleting too fast :p

Enjoying a slice of their effort.

Thank you Chef Judy for the fun and interesting baking session. Thank you Alvin and Rosalind for all the help too.

We had a fun family baking session at Creative Culinaire.

I forgot to mention this, kids always look adorable in their Chef’s hat and apron πŸ™‚

Board game Risk – my childhood game

Enemy of enemy is a Friend.
No friends and enemy are permanent.
Alliances are worthless when there are conflicts of interest.

Be it Strategy, Treachery or pure luck.
Everyone had fun with Hasbro’s Board Game Risk.

Thanks to Hasbro, we need not buy extra Christmas gifts for year end. Guys got the guns and robots, while girl had more choices! (MyLittlePony, Playdoh and such).
Boon Xin is a very happy girl.

I was looking forward to my childhood game, Risk! Used to spend so much wonderful hours challenging and beating my old neighbours.

We can see the kids’ characters when they play the board game Risk.
Some hate to lose, some always boasts :p
They are upset when someone betray them, or deny them a continent haha!

Some life skills can be imparted during the game too.
– Think one step ahead. What if Neighbour change card and Attack?
– Have a Plan B, in case things (dice throw) do not go your way
– Attack the strongest, eliminate the weakest, then no2 and no3 can contest each other

I got interested in Geography through Risk. Where are you, Siam, Mongolia, and Siberia etc etc?
Go on, take a Risk with the little ones, I am sure there will be some tense moments but kids should enjoy the game πŸ™‚

Do you have more tips to share?
More toys and events can be found on Hasbro website.

Slide the City Singapore is bringing Water Fun to town

YES! Slide the City in Singapore will be happening this November πŸ™‚

From 25–27 November 2016, 1000feet (that is 300m!) of vinyl will be turned into some serious water slide around the floating platform in Marina Bay.
I am still not sure how the slide will be rolled out, you need the height (gravity) and space, 300 metres sounds like you can slide “forever”!

Video : Some of you might have seen this happening video before (link)

(Personally, Benjamin Sheares Bridge comes to mind when I thought of the “ideal” slide venue, but it would be crazy to divert traffic over two days)

Bring your fancy swimwear, floats water guns and GoPros, party time awaits at Slide the City Singapore. Tickets will go on sale till 08 Sep 2016.
