On March 17, 2023, the MUPAT Library transformed into a fairy-tale pastry kitchen. A total of 30 cake artists gathered to learn cupcake decoration techniques and create their own masterpieces. Miss Zakki, the activity instructor, expressed her admiration for the participants’ enthusiasm in learning and creating. “We covered everything from understanding ingredients, tools, to color mixing and piping techniques. I’m impressed by the level of enthusiasm and creativity from the students,” she added.

After the theory session, it was time for the students to put their newly acquired skills into practice by decorating cupcakes. With colorful frostings and various decorations to choose from, they elevated the cupcake game, adding their unique styles and creativity. Maritza Najma Prabasari, a second-grade student, shared that she was thrilled to enjoy time with her friends. “I feel happy because I could make beautiful cupcakes and spend time with my friends,” she exclaimed.
