This is the time of year for giving but it’s also the time of year for baking. What better way to spend your holidays with family than in the kitchen trying new recipes or perfecting Grandma’s traditional recipes. Either way, it is the perfect time to learn new baking tricks and meet new friends along the way. You can also get your little ones involved and make it a family affair, especially when it’s time to taste test. Check out these 5 holiday baking classes in the D.
At Eastern Market the kiddos can perfect their own Christmas cookie recipes. After rolling their own dough and putting a little star on their tree shaped cookies, they are welcome to eat them or bring them home for mom and dad to taste-test. Grandma and Grandpa can get in on the fun too and bake with the kiddos.
Holiday Cookie Workshop
This class is lead by cookie baking extraordinaire Dorie Greenspan. She has created over 300 ways to bake cookies. Participants will follow Dorie’s cookie recipes as a start to make their own holiday cookie creations. Oh! And all participants get a free book to take home to recreate what they learned in class.
Mom and Me Kids Cupcakes
Grab up the kiddies and break out the decorating skills for a night of Christmas cupcakes. This hour long class will be just enough hands on frosting action to get creative with your cupcakes. Heinrich is not called the Decorating Nook for nothing as they have been in business for 30 years.
Buche De Noel
Spots are filling very fast for this annual Christmas bake class. Participants learn to bake vanilla chiffon cake, walnut rum buttercream and chocolate butter cream. Holly and logs will be provided as you create the perfect holiday table setting.
Cookie Bake & Exchange
Bake cookies and then eat, share and enjoy with other participants. This year is the first cookie bake and exchange at Cake Crumbs. Bring your tin or if you don’t have one, one will be gifted to you. Participants can create Amaretto Oatmeal cookies all while making new friends around the holiday time.
