Baking with Love and Lakeland

The 13th of September was a hectic yet special day. It was a working Saturday and inspite of being down with allergies, I was very excited to go all the way to town. To KalaGhoda, to the Westside store to witness a landmark event.The train ride was fun and I reached Churchgate in 30 minutes flat. Kudos Maharashtra Government for this remarkable transformation.The Westside store had arranged a preview of Lakeland products.This is a UK based company which manufactures and markets premium Kitchenware. Lakeland is now ready to enter the Indian market with their range of baking accessories, bake and oven ware, cupcake and cake pop maker, Chocolate fountain and candy floss maker.

The fun session began with Ms. Roxanne Bamboat thetinytaster.com introducing the company and welcoming all the bloggers. She introduced Shahzad Variava, Amul Master Chef India season 2’s Dessert King. I was looking forward to few baking tips and learning the art of icing my cupcakes from the Chef.

The coffee shop was beautifully decorated with all Lakeland premuim baking and oven ware. There were different stations and we were told to visit each one, trying our hands at baking, making and tasting some of those goodies. At first, I went to the candyfloss station because it brought back my childhood memories.The machine was sleek, compact and easy to store when not in use. It needed sugar and a technique to twirl the floss on the candy stick. And Voila – you would have a happy bunch of kids.

The mini cupcake maker was amazing, get the batter in, just wait for five minutes and your cupcakes are ready. Same was with the cakepop maker. I especially enjoyed making cakepops and popping them hot in my mouth. I want this product for myself. I am definitely going to impress everyone and enhance my baking skills, further.

Now, It was time to drown my love for chocolates in the chocolate fountain. I must say this was the star attraction of the evening. It will be a hit at kiddie parties, which now, Lakeland brings to India.

The station of Chef Shahzad was the best of all. He answered everyone’s queries and was a good teacher, just like me. Hehe !! I learnt how to ice my cupcakes and coat my cakepops with chocolate sauce.

Tables were turned, I was the little kid eager to learn today.
