The Kent Historical Society is hosting a baking workshop with Patsy Stroble on April 15 and 16 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the First Congregational Church of Kent's Parish House kitchen on 97 Main St. North in the center of Kent. Participants will take home treasured recipes, pick up valuable baking tips, and learn fancy decorating techniques.
A $75 ticket to either of the baking workshops, April 15 or 16, also includes a ticket to the April 17 Musicale and Spirited Tea Party featuring music from the 19th century performed by the Rosewood Chamber Ensemble. Proceeds from both events will go toward the restoration of the Seven Hearths Museum. While exterior work is already underway, KHS must raise funds to match a generous grant from the Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation to help complete the exterior phase of the planned restoration work before other work can take place.
The April 15 session will focus on the preparation of molded patés, savory tartes, the baking of miniature cupcakes and petit fours (for decoration the following day), and preparation of cake and cream puff fillings.
The April 16 session will be dedicated to the decoration of sweet treats with Patsy and her daughter, both professional decorators for many years. Learn techniques from the pros and help prepare gorgeous creations for the benefit in the process.
Space is limited and will be available on a first-come first-served basis. Registration is available online at www.kenthistoricalsociety.org or by sending in a check to PO Box 651 Kent CT 06757.
