Kids visit bakery
Gowrie Park Pre-School was welcomed into the house of the gingerbread man at Tatura Hot Bread last week, learning about the makings of winning cakes and famous pies.
The yearly tradition was celebrated by making knot rolls from bread dough and icing cupcakes.
Tatura Hot Bread owner Glenda Alexander said the team loved showing the students how the baking industry worked.
‘‘We made some bread dough for them to play with and to feel the texture, before icing cupcakes with lollies to take away for afternoon tea,’’ Mrs Alexander said.
She said it was important to give the children an insight into what happened behind the counter.
Gowrie Park Pre-School kindergarten teacher Lynda Ashcroft said the children enjoyed eating their treat at the Lions Park on their way back to the kinder.
‘‘A big thank you to Tatura Hot Bread for allowing us every year to have this special experience with our kindergarten group at their bakery,’’ Ms Ashcroft said.
