Subjects Taught: Baking 101

Baking with Maranda Clark the Owner of Seaside Desserts:
With a hands on approach, this baking course will encourage its students to stick their fingers into the pie, have a smudge of flour on their noses, and a tasty treat to take home; bring some old shirts, because it is about to get messy in the kitchen with some learning!
Not only will students learn to bake but they will learn about how science is used in baking; including what each ingredient does and how they react to each other.
Science is not the only thing this course will touch on; fractions will be included as well. Baking is all about the halves, fourths, and thirds after all.
Baking is a gateway to making math and science fun and applicable to real-life for you or your child. So bring your appetite for some sweet learning as each course is individualized for each person’s preference for what they are interested in learning.
You or your child can choose from:
• Biscotti
• Cheesecake
• Cobbler
• Cookies
• Cupcakes
• Mini Cake
• Pie
• Scones
