We made a delicious swiss roll. We used the whisking method. It was very quick and easy as the sponge only took 10 minutes to cook in the oven! The hardest part was separating the egg whites from the yolk. They were light and spongy. We filled the swiss roll with jam and cream and rolled it up.

"Today we made sticky chocolate drop cakes using the melting method. We have been learning about how raising agents work in class - today we used both natural and chemical raising agents to ensure they brownies rose in the oven! We introduced air into the mixture by sieving the flour for our natural raising agent. We also used a chemical raising agent - baking powder (acid + base) which is in self-raising flour. When mixed with a liquid, the chemical reaction makes the brownies rise in the oven. We really enjoyed making and eating these scrumptious brownies!

Today we made chocolate chip cupcakes. We added all of our ingredients into a large mixing bowl using the all in one method and mixed them all together using the electric whisk. Then we added chocolate chips and put them in the oven. They smelt delicious. When we took them out of the oven we let them cool and put purple glace icing on them. We decorated them with marshmallows and chocolate buttons. They tasted delicious and we will for sure be making them again !!!!! : )
