My classes for kids on making fondant animals just got listed at Make it Sweet:
KIMBERLY’S KIDS – FONDANT FIGURES
Kids should come join Kimberly Chapman in this fun hands-on class. They will learn the basics of making animal figures out of fondant. We’ll start with a basic bear, show how some small adjustments turn it into a spiky-maned lion, and then get a little more advanced with an adorable elephant. Each figure will be on it’s own cupcake, so kids will bring their tasty creations home. All supplies and tools provided. Classes are designed for kids only and separated into groups of 5 to 9 year olds and 9 to 12 year olds.
Ages 5 to 9 yrs old | April 28 | Sunday | 11:00 am – 12:30 pm
Ages 9 to 12 yrs old | April 28 | Sunday | 2:00 – 2:30 pm
Here’s the photo from their newsletter of the animals placed on cupcakes:
Here are some close ups of the animals from my kitchen:
I’ll tailor how detailed the animals get based on the kids who attend: if they’re more advanced and patient, I’ll show them how to do more details. For the younger ones in particular, there’s no requirement to make the animals as shown. I’ll encourage creativity and having fun with the food!
Even if you can’t attend, please help me spread the word. There will be more classes in the future if these do well.
If you have suggestions or requests for other classes, just let me know.
