The kids start school in less than two weeks, so we are trying to get the most of our last few carefree days. Yesterday after doing some arts and crafts they decided they would like to make a cake for Daddy. We looked through my cookbooks and found a recipe for an old fashioned chocolate that looked super yummy.
The 5 year old was in charge of measuring and pouring, the 3 year old did the mixing. They did a really good job until it was time to wait for the cake to cool before frosting. We had to pull out the boardgames to keep them busy.
They both helped frost the cake and we practiced a new technique I described as swirling. It involves butter knifes and quick motions making it ideal for little kids. They had a blast and the cake was delicious. Most of all they were very proud of their creation and couldn't wait to show Daddy when he got home.
Does anyone else like playing around with Instagram? I'm obsessed with that app on my iPhone. Have a great rest of the week!
