Major Learning Project – Week 6

Going to keep it short and sweet this week! I kept it simple by trying a technique I had previously done on a cake with buttercream icing. I figured it should easily transfer over to be able to do on royal icing as royal icing will give an even smoother and harder surface than buttercream.Continue reading “Major Learning Project – Week 6”

Major Learning Project- Week 5

It’s November 1st!!! Yes, I am one of those crazy Christmas people. It is my favourite time of the year and I love all the joy and happiness (and baking excuses) that the holiday season brings. Finally, to top it off, my favourite holiday baking show- Holiday Baking Championship starts tonight. However, I can’t getContinue reading “Major Learning Project- Week 5”

Social Media Activism

Is it possible to have productive conversations about social justice online? What is our responsibility as educators to model active citizenship online? It took awhile for me to gather my thoughts and write this blog post.Continue reading “Social Media Activism”

Flooding is the term for the technique cookie decorators use when they create a smooth finish on a cookie. Think of it like the background behind whatever design isContinue reading “Major Learning Project – Week 1”

Major Learning Project – Introduction

My Relationship With Social Media

Looking Back… Being born in 1995 (yes… I am just a wee little baby still, well according to my coworkers), I grew up during the prime time of technology and social media advancement. I remember the quote “old days” of dial up internet and floppy disks. My mother also worked for SaskTel and had oneContinue reading “My Relationship With Social Media”
