Last Sunday (15th May), we hosted the final bake of our Junior Church Platinum Pudding: ‘The Queen Elizabeth Platinum Pudding Surprise’. Sadly, not all of our children and young people who have helped over the weeks were able to join us.
Over recent weeks 15 children and young people have been involved in creating the pudding. Key elements have been baked and tasted ready for the final bringing together, when the meringue was added before popping it into a very hot oven.
When cut open the surprise was clear. The cooked strawberry and vanilla ice-creams had not melted. The chocolate and vanilla ‘sponges’ had helped create the shape of the crown. It was decorated and served with strawberry jewels.
We were delighted, as you can see from the photo below, that the Queen was able to pop in for a quick visit.
The celebrations for the Platinum Jubilee continue on 5th June with our Jubilee Celebration Day in the Galilee Gardens – do join us then!
