New Event: Emoji Workshop

With the new Emoji Movie opening in cinemas on the 22nd of September 2017, end Heritage weekend on a high note by booking seats for your kids at Cooking Up A Storm’s Emoji Workshop on Monday 25 September. In case you did not know, Heritage Day, aka Braai Day, falls on a Sunday this year.

My team and I will keep kids entertained with an Emoji-themed culinary activity where they will be able to express themselves by way of decorating a variety of cookies and cupcakes in the Emoji theme with buttercream icing, royal icing, sweets, etc.

You are welcome to drop your kid(s) off and go. I am a mom of two primary school kids, so I know that moms sometimes need some me-time! You are also welcome to hang around. I provide tea, coffee, refreshments, etc. for parents on my patio – free of charge. Remember to bring a book or magazine!

The dictionary describes an emoji as “a small digital image or icon used to express an idea, emotion, etc. in electronic communication.” Can you image a world without emoji’s?

The Emoji Movie is a 3D computer-animated science-fiction comedy based on the emoji symbols. Hidden inside a smartphone, the bustling city of Textopolis is where all your favorite emojis live, hoping to be selected by the phone’s user. Each emoji has only one facial expression, except for Gene, who was born without a filter and is bursting with multiple expressions. Determined to become “normal” like the other emojis, Gene enlists the help of his best friend Hi-5 and a notorious code breaker called Jailbreak. During their travels through the other apps, the three emojis discover a great danger that could threaten their phone’s very existence.
