Hi! I'm the proud mum of 2 beautiful kids, Princess Pumpkinseed and Prince PeeWee. PW is a contact egg-allergy sufferer. Thus began my adventures into egg-free cooking, namely baking. From there, the cooking and baking evolved to include dairy-free, gluten-free, nut-free, gelatine-free foods. So let me share with you my trials and tribulations via this blog and my successes on my website (http://www.sointricake.com) So Intricake!

Cupcake decorating class for kids at IBM, Singapore
Tables prepped for kids decorating class
We did a couple of cupcake decorating sessions for 50 kids at IBM, Singapore. Each child was given 4 egg-free and dairy-free chocolate cupcakes to decorate. The sessions were completely egg, dairy, nut and gelatin free so that at least 4 of the main allergies were covered.
Animal face toppers
Easy-to-do animal face toppers for the cupcakes were chosen for the decorating workshop, as the kids were ranged in age from 4 to 12. They were taught to make the faces of a pig, cat, bear and elephant (see picture above).
The elephant was the star of the day. The children came up with some amazingly creative forms of the animal faces shown them. One of them made an incredible elephant face with heavy eyebrows which so reminded me of Snuffulufagus from Sesame Street!
Making animal face toppers for cupcakes
A great deal of free artistic expression was going on, I tell you! A lot of fun was had by all!
