Fun and games at the Elske Centre
Dannevirke’s Elske Centre has something for all over-60s, with the monthly calendar of activities growing.
In the past month the centre has had a visit from entertainer Lance Nae-Smith, who is returning again soon, and Liz Parkes of Iced, with her assistant Jennifer, demonstrated how to turn out tasty treats with a cupcake icing session.
For Elske Centre client Marcie Cresswell the icing and decorating session brought back memories of her time working in a cake shop in Palmerston North.
The Elske clients were able to ice and decorate their own cupcakes to take home, after learning how to make their own simple icing bag from Liz who had photos of cakes she has made for special occasions, from the cute to the quirky. Liz will have her pop up store open again on High St before Christmas and there will be plenty of tempting treats on sale.
The Elske Centre is also purchasing one of Liz’s gingerbread houses to raffle before Christmas.
Everyone is welcome at Elske, you just need to phone phone 374-7070.
