Stretch The Kitchen- Cinnamon Rolls



Our group chose to make Cinnamon Rolls because it was something we all like, and we wanted a challenge. For our recipe there were three steps we had to complete to make the cinnamon rolls. The three steps were; the making of the dough, the filling, and the frosting.

Each person in our group did an equal amount of work. For example; when we were putting together the cinnamon buns one person rolled, and flattened out the dough. Then one person cut the dough, and another one rolled it. This made the process fast and efficient.

One thing our group and I could’ve worked on better was the making of the frosting/icing. We whisked the frosting together which didn’t make it very thick, but if we had used a hand mixer it would have thickened better. Also, our group kept adding too much milk so it made the frosting really runny. So in the end we learned that you only need a little bit of milk and you need to add more icing sugar.

Something we did very well was the making of the dough. The end product of our dough was very light and fluffy and the filling was crumbly. In the end, our group managed our time well and the product turned out satisfactory.

Foods 10 February Lab Reflection


  1. Why did you choose to reflect on this lab?
  2. Did you enjoy the lab? Why or why not?
  3. Did your product turn out the way you had hoped? If yes, what helped? If no, why did it not?
  4. Did you group work well together during the lab? Why or why not? (i.e. were there any issues that came up/how did you solve them?)
  5. If you were to do this lab again, what might you do differently? Why?

I choose to reflect on the Valentine’s Day Sugar Cookies lab because it is the lab that I have enjoyed the most so far in Foods 10 and my group and I worked pretty well together.

I enjoyed this lab because the cookies tasted really good, my group and I worked well together on it and also because I love to bake.

Yes the product turned out the way we wanted. What helped make the cookies turn out perfect was that our group worked well together and communicated.

If I did this lab again, I wouldn’t do much different, besides asking my group to let me do a little more cooking.
