Sweet se­crets from Swe­den

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - STREET WATCH -

A WATERFORD young­ster kicked off her hol­i­day sea­son by cre­at­ing Swedish gin­ger­bread houses with hos­pi­tal­ity icon Miss Maud.

The in­au­gu­ral com­pe­ti­tion, with Com­mu­nity News­pa­per Group, gave 12 chil­dren a chance to join Maud Ed­mis­ton and her pas­try chefs at a gin­ger­bread mak­ing party.

Among the win­ners was eight-year-old Aleisha Loh.

Out­fit­ted in small aprons and mini chef hats, the young­sters rolled, cut, baked and dec­o­rated their gin­ger­bread houses and men, new learn­ing culi­nary skills.

Nine-year-old Zane Knight, of At­tadale, said the ex­pe­ri­ence was “as spe­cial as go­ing to Willy Wonka’s choco­late fac­tory”.

The chil­dren took their cre­ations and the recipe home.

“It was a de­light to share some­thing so close to my heart with these beau­ti­ful boys and girls,” Ms Ed­mis­ton said.

The com­pe­ti­tion was part of Miss Maud’s cel­e­bra­tion of 45 years since open­ing her first Swedish cof­fee house in Perth.
