Meet Grace, the 2015 American Girl of the Year.  She loves to bake with her friends and create new recipes.  Her dream is to start a french bakery after taking a trip to Paris.

Inspired by Grace’s passion for baking, a new series “American Girl at Sur La Table: Make and Bake French Treats” will be offered at Sur La Table culinary locations nationwide for girls aged 8-12.    Chef instructors will first teach young bakers the fundamentals: following recipes, measuring, mixing and working safely in the kitchen. Then, girls will get a hands-on experience in the kitchen, learning the chefs’ secrets.  Recipes featured in the class include Chocolate-Glazed Eclairs, Pate a Choux, Apple Tartlets for girls and dolls, and Eiffel Tower Sugar Cookies. At the end each girl gets to take home an American Girl goodie bag, including an American Girl apron and a cookie cutter from Sur La Table.  The classes are 2 hours long and will be available on March 22, April 19, and May 17. The cost for each class is $39.  Find a location near you or reserve by phone 800-243-0852.

We got a sneak peek of the class the other day and it’s AWESOME.  Although, my girls are younger than the age for the class, they had a wonderful time.  They love to bake just like Grace.  During our class the girls learned how to make Eiffel Tower Cookies.  They learned about which ingredients go into making the vanilla cookie mix.  They also learned how to make Royal Icing using confectioners sugar, meringue powder, and water.  A couple of secrets they took home with them included using flour on their cookie cutters and using a ketchup bottle for piping.  After the class they asked to come home and make more with the Eiffel Tower cookie cutters and apron that came in their gift bag.  Thank you Sur La Table W 57st and American Girl for such a fun afternoon.
