24th November 2016
Students studying Level 2 and 3 Professional Confectionery and Patisserie courses at York College have baked batches of spice and lemon drizzle cakes for St Leonard’s Hospice to sell at their Christmas Fair on Saturday 26th November.
It was the first time 18 year old student Natasha Hopkins, formerly of Malton School, had made a spice cake. She said: “I want to be a pastry chef and this exercise taught me that there is an art to baking a large volume of cakes, it was a little overwhelming at first as there were so many ingredients. I’m pleased the cakes turned out well and hopefully people will enjoy them. It’s also really good that we can do our bit to help raise funds for St Leonard’s Hospice..”
Anyone adults interested in starting an Intermediate Patisserie and Confectionery course in January 2017 (Tuesday evenings) should contact York College.
