Cupcake Decorating at the Library – Wednesday (Updated)

Above: Last week’s event was rescheduled to tomorrow.. (images cropped from flyer)

A teen event that was scheduled for last week at the Southborough Library was postponed. Cupcake decorating will now take place tomorrow afternoon.

The free event for ages 12-18 allows teens to “Decorate a fancy cupcake and enjoy your delicious result.” The flyer notes that cupcakes will be decorated in an animal theme with help from a professional.

No registration is required to attend the free event in the downstairs Eaton Meeting Room.

Cupcake Decorating - updated flyerInitially, the session was scheduled for March 16th. The snow storm earlier in the week caused a power outage for the baker. She was unable to bake the cupcakes to be frosted.

As I previously posted, the event is one of several Library youth programs related to food/cooking made possible by a grant.* 

The others already scheduled for this spring and summer do require pre-registration and have limited space. To sign up for any of the following, email (Note: Tools used in the events below were funded by The Friends of the Southborough Library.)

Rainbow Food Pinwheels —  for ages 5-7 with parents/guardians

Led by a professional children’s cooking instructor. Paired with a parent or guardian, kids will create beautiful bites out of a wrap, a nut or seed butter, and colorful fruits. They will do the same with hummus or cream cheese and colorful vegetables. Roll it up, slice it, and see the beauty inside!

Young Food Explorers —  for ages 4-7 with parents/guardians

Come enjoy making tacos at the library, led by a professional children’s cooking instructor! Kids will work in pairs and create their own taco feast with guacamole, salsa, beans, cheese and lettuce. They will practice knife skills, mashing, seasoning and assembling.
