Abby’s Panera Bread Party

Since this was my last birthday celebrating in NJ, I wanted to have a friend party. So, Mom found us an awesome place to have it… Panera Bread! They have a “Bakers in Training” program where we get to go in the kitchen and bake bread, learn about the restaurant and decorate cookies! We had such a blast!

Mom was down in North Carolina looking for our new house, so she wasn’t able to be there Sad smile Good thing lots of people took pictures so she could see everything we did!

After we got in the kitchen, the first thing we had to do was wash our hands…

Then you have to wear gloves before touching the food…

The head baker taught us about the kitchen, food prep and showed us how to stretch and score our french bread before baking them!

While our bread was baking, we went out the restaurant to decorate some spring flower cookies…
