Thankful Tuesday: It’s more blessed to give than to receive

It first started out as teaching cake decorating to a teenager.

Turns out a whole group of girls with ages ranging from 9 years old to 15 years old were expecting to learn. Thankfully, I arrived at my friend’s place with sufficient fondant and equipment. It almost feels like conducting a holiday baking and cake decorating class for the kids. How exciting!

This is the group of sisters whom I grew up with in church and now I have the privilege of sharing some skills with them and their girls.

Thank God for FY who opened her house who has air-conditioners installed in the living room! So perfect for a big group of cake decorators!

After showing them the basics of using sugarpaste, they were eager to work on it themselves. Meanwhile, Pagon, who is an excellent baker got down to baking more cupcakes because the ones I brought were obviously not enough!

Meanwhile, I stepped aside to watch the kids do the job while I resumed my mommy duties. The host also prepared lunch for us and the whole group of girls took a break before going back to decorating their cupcakes, this time round, using the buttercream that Pagon prepared.

Pagon also showed us how to make marshmallow fondant. Rather easy to do!

I had an awesome time teaching the kids who are so well-behaved! And definitely love spending some time with the very experienced mummies. How I missed them!

I’m thankful for this opportunity to give because in the end, I realised I received more. Thank you, dear Lord!
