Bush Telegraph - - PROPERTY MARKET -

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.
