Here’s a simple recipe to make chewy eggless chocolate brownies frosted with a chocolate buttercream and lots of sprinkles! Also, some details about my first ever baking workshop!
Last Sunday was quite eventful; it was the day of my first ever baking workshop! I had been contemplating the idea of organizing a workshop for quite sometime now but I never really got around to doing it, partially because I was too scared of doing everything on my own. Planning, organizing and managing an event can be quite daunting for one person so I never really did anything about it until my blogger friend Shivesh from Bake with Shivesh approached me and proposed the same idea! There couldn’t have been a better time to do one so naturally I was excited about it and said YES in an instant! It was an absolute pleasure to work with Shivesh, this super talented 19 year old is a superb baker and an amazing photographer! I don’t think I could’ve found a better partner because both of us were so in sync throughout this whole process of putting together this event (which BTW was a big painful task).
First things first, we had to finalize a location and I couldn’t think of a better place than Boheme . I had been to this place once before and absolutely loved it (read about my coffee tasting at Boheme here). This beautiful cafe is away from the hustle and bustle of the city and so different from all the regular cafes in Delhi. The decor is tastefully done with a bohemian theme and relaxed atmosphere in mind. This was a perfect setting for our baking workshop and we were so lucky to find it!
We were so lucky that everything worked out for us! From getting our gorgeous recipe books printed, to managing registrations, we did it all in a couple of weeks! The day of the workshop was definitely scary because I had never baked in front of 20 people before and I was just terrified of making mistakes! But all I can say is we were really lucky to have the most supportive and encouraging audience ever. They kept cracking jokes, laughed at ours which actually made the atmosphere really fun! I got to meet some of my Instagram followers which was truly the best part and made it all worth it. I don’t think we could’ve done it any better (maybe professionally shot pictures would’ve been nice but our photographer ditched us last minute..IMAGINE!).
For the workshop I demonstrated two recipe – my most favourite Lemon Loaf Cake and these Frosted Sprinkle Brownies. Picking these recipes was a real pain because all my good recipes are already on my blog and I really wanted to give my attendees a new recipe so I came with the idea of frosting my brownies because, why not!? Frosting makes everything better, especially when it’s my chocolate buttercream frosting which is truly the best recipe out there. I was so glad to have all the attendees taste these brownies, and I’m proud to report back that they were really liked by all! I wasn’t surprised because when has anything with sh*t load of chocolate on it been disliked, right? These were bound to be a hit and they were! They’re the IT-dessert for vegetarians who are chocolate lovers, and the sprinkles make them soooo festive!
