Baking school for kids during summer break can be lots of fun and rather messy! But with all the mess, there are so many benefits that kids would gain from the whole baking experience. To complete the #Summerpinasaya offerings for Baliwagenyo children, the Municipality of Baliwag thru the Public Employment Service Office, Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA), and Baliwag Polytechnic College (BTech) conducted the “Baking for Kids” from May 30 – June 01, 2018 at the HRM Laboratory of BTech. This 3-day short course aims to teach the kids and early teenagers practical baking lessons and help boost their self-confidence.
Ms. Evangeline R. Reyes – Trainer from TESDA conducted the short orientation by discussing house rules, baking equipment, recipes, and safety tips for baking. Ms. Reyes also asked the trainees to introduce themselves and state the reason why they joined the program.
The participants were grouped into two batches: the morning batch consists of attendees age 7-12 while the afternoon class consists of early teenagers 13-17 years old. The kids were very excited as the first recipe they made was molded chocolates, they were asked to melt chocolates and put it in different molder types such as cartoon characters and animals. The afternoon session was a little bit different as the young bakers made Pulvoron. Baking class would not be complete without chocolate recipes. The second day was extra special as they baked the all-time favourite chocolate crinkles, even though crinkles are not yet baked and ready to serve, you will see some of the kids sneaking a quick taste of their mixed ingredients to see how it tastes. On their last and final day, the kids baked chocolate cupcakes. This was even more exciting and colourful as they were asked to design their own cupcakes using different piping bags. Some are nervous as it is their first time to do that but you will definitely see serious kids perfecting their own cupcakes. Their baked cupcakes were later on presented to the whole class.
Here are some interviews from parents who joined their kids with the free baking class:
“Ang main purpose namin, gusto ko matututo ang anak ko mag-bake, para hindi siya naiinip during school break at makapagbake siya sa bahay.” – Ms. Beverly Inoncillo.
“Imbis na nasa bahay lang sila at more on gadgets lang nakatutok, dito sa free baking for kids magiging productive ang school break nila, matututo sila magbake magkapatid at madadagdagan ang skills nila.” Ms. Julie Laguna.
Certainly, a successful #summerpinasaya training for kids. The Municipality of Baliwag thru PESO will continue to conducts trainings not only for adults but for kids to discover new set of talents.
