Teen Projects for Ancient Civ class
Saturday, December 03, 2011
Here are some of the teen projects from my last class, this last Monday; My daughter tie-dyed a t-shirt using natural items, such as blackberries. Fabric dyeing was something the Egyptians and others from this time period did.
Most of the students used a recipe in their book that called for a meringue like frosting (egg whites). This particular bread used no frosting (just powdered sugar) and the lemon was very lightly used.
This one was closest to the recipe which called for yogurt and lemon. The frosting was mostly egg-whites that are beaten into white stiffed peaks and included honey. There were two other cakes as well...and some cupcakes...TOO MUCH CAKE! I had a taste of each and they were very similar. We decided that the sweet honey frosting was a little too much sweetness. The bread was the best because it wasn't Too sweet.
