On October 6th, you can join me at Surfas in Los Angeles to learn how to make the best homemade versions of store-bought treats.

In this 3-hour hands-on baking class, you will get to make each of the following recipes and take them home

  • Triple chocolate chip cookies
  • Homemade twinkies
  • Chocolate Cupcakes with marshmallow filling (like the Hostess ones!)
  • Orange Cupcakes filled with marshmallow cream
  • Apple handpies

 

Here’s a sneak peak into the baking secrets you’ll learn in this Sunday’s class:

A lot of people think that Twinkies are just a filled “butter cake”, which is a traditional type of cake where butter and sugar are creamed together, then whole eggs are beat in, followed by flour and a leavening (rising) agent like baking powder, and lastly milk.  Butter cakes are denser than a Twinkie, which is actually a different type of cake called a “sponge cake”.  

While sponge cakes use butter and eggs, sponge cake recipes call for whipping egg whites into the consistency of whipped cream, then mixing those fluffy whites (nearly a meringue) into the batter, which results in a lighter “spongy” type cake.    

If you buy a Hostess brand Twinkie bake pan, the recipe they provide in their kit is for a butter cake (not a sponge cake), which means that your homemade twinkies won’t be as light as the real thing.  

 

Come to class this Sunday and actually make a butter cake and a sponge cake and see the delicious difference! And make a delicious version of the homemade Twinkie too!
