Foreword
 

s scratch baking a dying art? Will spatulas and sifters, cake flour and cookie cutters, bowl scrapers and batters only be found in the Smithsonian Museum of American History alongside the buggy whips and stagecoaches? No! Thanks to people like you who share your time and skills to teach the younger generation the value of home baking, the art will continue. The Home Baking Association is pleased to offer you this resource guide to make your task easier. This guide provides tested and reliable recipes, cookbooks, videos, posters, baking tips and even lesson plans. Additional information is available on the Home Baking Association Web site at www.homebaking.org. Scratch baking not only teaches math, science and history, but also encourages self-esteem, cultural awareness, team-building skills and when done at home, can promote family togetherness. These skills will help prepare today's youth to cope in this high pressure, ever-changing world. The Secretary of Labor's Commission on Achieving Necessary Skills (SCANS) report states,

      "...most employers, from bread manufacturers to car dealers, have the same needs.
      They need workers who are creative and responsible problem solvers who possess skills and attitudes on which to build."

Thank you for providing this important part of our culture to the next generation. Because of educators like you, scratch baking is not a dying art; it continues to be a life skill that opens a world of opportunities for the next generation.
