Macoupin County Youth Participate in 4-H Cupcake Decorating Workshop
August 2, 2016
Youth from Macoupin County participated in a 4-H Cupcake Decorating Workshop sponsored by the University of Illinois Extension-Macoupin County. Youth learned basic cake decorating skills and tried their hand at decorating their own cupcakes. Karla Keene of Shipman led the group through hands-on activities using icing tips to make different patterns and offered expert advice for the youth to decorate their final cupcakes to take home. Karla is a 40 year veteran of the art and was able to show off some of the beautiful work she has done for weddings and theme parties. Youth were also given a decorating starter set including icing tips and bags to practice their techniques at home.
