kate5kiwis: HOME ED EXPO 2006


“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

Our annual Home Ed EXPO is so much fun for the kids (and a bit of last-minute stress for the mommas !!!)
This year, J1o and M4 won first prizes for their *stained glass biscuits* and *chocolate cake*
and R13 won first prize for her construction !!!!

Those stained glass bikkies are such a fabulous science experiment, the only sorta science experiment I like: food-related!! *grin*
J10 just cut a hole in his biscuit dough and popped in a few boiled lollies: and they all melted down miraculously and turn into "stained glass".. looks fabulous and tastes delicious....

yay!! we have yummy home baking to scoff all weekend!!

I've wanted to make those stained-glass cookies for ages and we've never done it. You've re-inspired me!

Congratulations on the good jobs well done!

Mmmmmmm! Kitchen chemistry, now with chocolate! Yeah boy!

I used to make those biscuits ("cookies") with my Grandma as Christmas ornaments. Just cut the dough a little extra-thick, fill with candy, and punch a hole at the top of the shape. After it cools, you can run a string or thread through the hole and hang the cookie from the tree. Just be sure to hang it above dog level, should you own any hungry puppies.

So how long did the chocolate cake last? I'm guessing, oh, 15 minutes??
