Why you let them choose a cake mix & frosting at your local market -
and, then you break some eggs.
Of course that's after your wash your hands and put on an apron -- at which point the 4 year old informs you that he really needs a 'boy' apron with lots of pockets for his Ninja Turtles!
Next we measured and mixed and scraped down the sides of the mixing bowl -- little hands seem to be very good at this task.
Then the batter was poured into the pans and popped in the oven -- at which point the 'bowl licking' began. As you can see - Joe took his job as 'chief bowl cleaner-upper' very seriously.
In a little while the cakes were baked and cooled -- and that meant it was time for the frosting !! -- and MoMo, "Did you know that frosting spreaders look like pirate knives !!"
And, finally the 'taste-testing' could begin !!
The little 'baker' pronounced the cake -- very yummy !!
