Art + Cooking Camp: Madeleines and the Eiffel Tower

Today was Day Two of my Paris-themed art and cooking camp. We made lemon madeleines and began a ‘Printed Paris’ Eiffel Tower project.

Madeleines

Our lemon madeleines were delicious. CLICK HERE FOR THE RECIPE. I bought my own silicone madeleine pan for this project. It worked perfectly – all the little cakes popped right out intact. The recipe made a lot of madeleines – we put the extra batter in cupcake papers and baked them up as little muffins. The kids doused them in powdered sugar. Really fun cooking project!

Printed Eiffel Towers

We started our printed Eiffel Towers.  The project was inspired by this fabulous post at the Cassie Stephens blog.

We used mat board scraps and white paint to print the Eiffel Tower.

Tomorrow we will finish up the Eiffel Towers, make meringues, and start on our Degas project.

Enjoy!

  1. Rina, what a great idea for a summer camp! Cooking and art… how fun. I bet the kids love it. Schools really should teach more life skills like cooking. I decided to take a break from teaching this summer. I needed to gear up for next year and rejuvenate. I think this was my first summer off in about 8 years.

    • Hi Marcia
      We are all having a great time. They love cooking! This year I have a teen-age helper (former camper) and it is making a a huge difference. I am so glad you are enjoying a summer off.
