Chinese New Year baking session with the little one! Spent Sunday baking together with her and some friends at Spurbox!
She was so happy to mix the dough, roll them into these little chicken shaped pastries, and of course eating them! I felt quite glad that I won’t be the one to clean up the place lol!
We arrived slightly early this time. So glad that they have this small play area for the kids. EQ had fun pushing this little trolley around, almost the whole time!
After being ushered into the baking area, one of their staff showed us how to make the pastry. I remembered consciously telling myself to concentrate so that I could remember the steps!
Then we returned to our allocated space and started mixing the dough. Mix, mix, mix…
I don’t have pictures of her shaping the pieces of the pastries. I was also rolling the dough and focusing very hard on giving her instructions to follow.
After the shaping was (finally) done, the kiddos sat down for a story-telling session! There was also a mini craft session to complete a keychain.
The staff helped with the baking and cooling of the pineapple tarts. EQ had fun trying to place the delicate tarts into the container provided. She couldn’t help but stole a bite! Haha!
I didn’t managed to take a photo of the nice packaging, but you can take a look at it over at Play 乐学 Facebook page.
She was so happy with the tarts she had made. We went to the church that evening to give some to her grandma to taste! Both the hubby and I were so glad that she enjoyed herself so much!
I won’t be sharing the recipe given by Spurbox, however, if you would like to try these yourself, the recipe is quite similar to these melt-in-mouth pineapple balls I have made a couple of years ago. (Oh yes, and if you would like, these open tarts version here.)
