Love to Bake Workshop
On Wednesday 4th September I was super lucky and I guess privileged to occupy the very last available seat at the Good Housekeeping/Love to Bake Workshop. This well attended and “delicious” workshop was held at The Benjamin which is a beautiful little boutique hotel situation on a very trendy and vibey strip of Florida Road in Durban.
The guests were treated to a variety of fruit juices, tea or coffee on arrival. We were spoilt with the most delicious hors d’oeuvres which were served by a group of lovely ladies walking around with platters making sure we didn’t go hungry.
The purpose of the workshop was to celebrate the Year of the Tart (2013) with Moir’s and their range of delicious baking products as well as demonstrations by our very own Queen of Tarts, Tina Bester. Tina also endorses the colourful range of Love to Bake cookware from Clicks which was used throughout her demonstrations.
Carmen Clegg (Senior Advertising) from Good Housekeeping Magazine as well as Snowy Kruger from Moir’s were our very gracious hosts who got the “taste buds going” by explaining the concept behind “Celebrating Tarts” and The Year of the Tart”.
Tina Bester got demonstrating on 2 beautiful tarts as well as THE most yummylicious (if that’s even a word) red velvet cupcakes. The tarts that our very talented Tina made were Chocolate and Pear tart, Apple, ginger and caramel tart and then last but not least Red velvet cream cheese cupcakes. Click here to get the recipes.
We all had a fabulous afternoon and were thoroughly spoilt with delicious food and goodie bags. At the end of the afternoon, Carmen Clegg did a lucky draw giving away some seriously fabulous gifts and I was extremely lucky to get a Moir’s gift bag full to the brim of lovely baking ingredients. An afternoon that I look forward to repeating again next year!
