Baking Basics
To inspire budding young pastry chefs, we are featuring recipes for decadent desserts that are designed with kids in mind. These easy-to-follow recipes will help children master the art and science of baking.

At birthday parties and other celebrations, kids will beam with pride when they serve their delicious creations, be it a layer cake frosted with chocolate icing or an imaginatively decorated train cake. They will learn the technique of rolling and shaping pastry dough when they make a free-form apple tart and flaky fruit-filled turnovers. For the closest thing to baking magic, they can watch yeast dough rise and puff up. This lesson is deliciously demonstrated by our savory focaccia and cinnamon-raisin bread.
