Young patisserie chefs serve up a treat
YOUNG people on the Fiesta programme’s Patisserie Magic course, run by Hillingdon Council, laid on a Mad Hatter’s tea party for some very important visitors.
The teenagers invited parents and education staff to savour their creations at a tea party, to mark the end of the week-long course.
They made a variety of cup cakes, pastries and mousses.
Some 15 young people attended the course, where they learned about pastry-making techniques, cookie dough, using eggs correctly and food colouring.
Celeste Williamson, 14, from Ickenham said: “We learnt a lot about team work and I liked making chocolate whoopee pies.”
Hillingdon’s annual summer holiday activities programme was again a huge success, with 1,600 young people attending courses including sports, outdoor activities, media and photography, business skills and the innovative Young Apprentice course, where they learnt how to set up and run their own soap-making business.
