My Grade 10 students have asked me to allow them to explore fondant sculpture in the third term this year. I have already started collecting ideas and inspiration on my Pinterest board “Food and Art”.
I have never baked anything more complicated than a muffin, so I am going to have to enlist the expertise of Phillipa our consumer studies teacher. Phillipa recently won a melktert (milktart) competition held at our school. Our headmaster fancied himself as an expert milktart baker & challenged the staff to beat him baking this traditional Afrikaans desert.
The competition was judged by two owners of a local restaurant Spice in Durban, during our teatime on Friday 10th of May. You can download Phillipa’s winning recipe here and you might like to download Tessa’s (a member of our Afrikaans staff) here.
