~ Canapes at the ready ~

Today it is my mum's Birthday so we booked a canape making class in Matlock bought via groupon. We had to be there for 9am but unfortunately the traffic was horrendous so we were a little late. Thankfully we missed very little. We were part of a small clas (8 of us) which meant it was easy to see the demonstrations.

We had a selection of ingredients on our tables to pick and choose from when making the canapes.

We made quite a few canapes ourselves and also had a few premade ones which we demonstrated only and then we were able to try them.

We made or had demos for:

Potato Blinis
BLT cherry tomatoes
Roast Beef and Watercress Roulades
Roast Beef & Mini Yorkshire Puddings
Puff Pastry Tartlets
Mini Roast New Jacket Potatoes

Along with suggestions of how to alter the recipes to make different canapes

We added Basil, goats cheese, cheddar, tomatoes and onion marmalade to the puff pastry squares.

There are lots of yummy goodies dotted around the cafe which can be created in other classes 

How pretty are these cupcakes!

All classes are done at Cafe Central in Matlock, Derbyshire.

Happy Crafting!
