It makes The Great British Bake Off look positively pedestrian: a dozen youngsters from an East Yorkshire nursery enjoying a morning in the late summer sun decorating biscuits at The Pipe and Glass Inn.The little ones, all aged between three and five, attend Old MacDonald’s Children’s Daycare Nursery in Lund, near Driffield.
They spent the morning on the terrace at the back of the pub decorating biscuits in the shape of teddy bears and flowers, under the guidance of James and Kate, whose two-year-old daughter Molly attends the nursery.Amid much sticky mess, the children unleashed their creativ.ity, decorating their biscuits with brightly-coloured chocolate and an assortment of sprinkles.
James then iced each biscuit with its owner’s name (carefully checking the spelling!), and the children took them home for their families to enjoy.
Old MacDonald’s Nursery manager Sara Jefferson said: “They’ve had great fun – it’s been something really different for the children to do. They know James and Kate because they’ve seen them picking Molly up from nursery,
and that helps – it’s less daunting for the very little ones to come somewhere where they know people."
James said: “Old MacDonald’s has really looked after Molly and, before her, her brother Toby – we’re delighted to be able to give something back to them."
