My students need a mixer that can handle larger batches of dough and batter for the bake shop they have created. Our orders grow each month as our bake shop becomes more and more popular!
The students in the Baking and Advanced Baking classes are highschool students in grades 10-12. The classes are electives so the students choose them because of personal interest in the topic. Some of our students are even considering a career in the foodservice industry and choose these courses to gain the skills they will need.
My students are resourceful and patient when our equipment fails.
They don’t complain when our equipment breaks, they work together to make the recipe work with what we have available. They enjoy baking and really get excited when a product comes out just as they imagined.
The advanced students run a Bake Shop once a month and are quickly learning customer service skills. They develop recipes, test them over and over until they are perfect, and then fill orders from the staff. The Bake Shop has been very successful and the real world experience that the students gain while running it cannot be replicated with any other type of lesson.
I have chosen an 8 quart Kitchenaid mixer for our classroom. We currently have a set of very old 5-6 quart mixers that break on a regular basis. The main reason they break is because of their age and although I have become quite adept at fixing the mixers and replacing the gears I just can't keep them all working all of the time. These old mixers also aren't always big enough for the batters and doughs we need to make for our monthly Bake Shop. A larger, newer mixer would give us one of the tools we need to continue running the Bake Shop.
The students have experienced great success running the Bake Shop and it has given them more confidence in their skills.
The staff have been very impressed with the products the students have produced and have given a lot of phenomenal feedback that the students use to improve their products. The students are learning life skills and career skills while having a great time in the classroom!
