Beautiful Cell Biscuits

FREE
Ages 5+ with guardian.
Bake a beautiful cell biscuit! Learn about cells, the building blocks of living things, by baking (and then eating) your own tasty cell diagrams. Assisted by a researcher from the Welcome Centre for Cell Biology, you will discover the differences and similarities between plants and animal cells and then be shown how to use dough, sweets and sprinkles to make stained glass style biscuits of each . This ‘bake-along’ session requires access to an oven, as well as some simple baking materials.

Please note: Only children participating in the workshop requires a tickets, accompanying adults do not.

Biscuit kit list

  • Clean surface for working on
  • Boiled fruit sweets (such as Foxes glacier fruit)
  • Shortcrust pastry (shop bought or homemade is fine)
  • Baking paper or foil
  • Baking tray
  • Oven
  • Sprinkles (optional but really make them look like cells)
  • Rolling pin or something that does that kind of job (glass bottle or the like)
  • Knife to score the pastry (can be a very blunt one)
  • Tweezers (sterilised!) can also be useful if using the fiddly sprinkles!
  • I also recommend using sandwich bags for crushing the sweets up. 3 or 4 depending on how many colours you want to do.
  • Something to crush them with (rolling pin, meat mallet or the like)
