As part of our maths topic ‘Park Street Bakery’ we completed a range of maths based activities exploring recipes for cupcakes. This included working out the cost of ingredients, comparing special offers and also looking at ration and proportion to adapt the recipe for different quantities.
THE DT BIT
We adapted the original recipe in order to make 3 cupcakes. We chose someone to make the cupcakes for. We looked at possible extra flavours, ingredients and decorations. Once we had chosen we adapted the original recipe to include them. We then followed our adapted recipes to weigh out ingredients, mix the batter add the extra ingredients, bake and decorate our cupcakes.
Then came the fun part we got to taste the cupcakes and evaluated the finished produce. We discussed with a partner what worked well and what could have been improved.
