BUTTERCREAM ICING DEMONSTRATION AT INDIAN SOCIAL CLUB
I hosted a cupcake decoration demonstration on 1st February, 2018, where I taught group of over 100 attendees how to perfect the art of buttercream icing and decorate cupcakes. The chief guest was Mrs. Sushma Pandey, wife of the Indian Ambassador to Oman, who thoroughly enjoyed the demonstration and also left a wonderful thank you note.
“I am happy I could join you all and learn about some of the nuances of baking and
icing which one doesn't find in books. Simran Dhanju is extremely talented and one
can see her passion for baking. It was a pleasure watching her demonstrate with so
much confidence and involvement. Please also thank her for this absolutely delicious cake that she baked for us. We are really touched by her heartwarming gesture. It’s one of my favorite cakes and since I am the one who has sampled it, she must know, that it tasted just as good as it was the first time when she won the first prize for it. Everyone in the house enjoyed it thoroughly.”
