What does a baker do when she's snowed in with 2 children???
SHE BAKES WITH THE KIDS!
Since I was home alone, snowed in, with my 3.5 and almost 2 year old, and my big boy had a great first week at his new school, I decided to reward him with his favorite treat - Chocolate Cupcakes! And for the first time, he helped to make them - which he loved.
He helped to add the ingredients. To save on time, I used a box mix and doctored it up.
Normally, I would care what the finished product would look like,
but my son's prior school taught him to flip the cupcake
upside down to eat it and not make a mess.
So when he turned my beautiful Christmas Tree Cupcake over
to eat it, I said never again! :-)
So I just applied the icing with a knife and then
flipped it upside down for him.
After hand-picking through the cupcake, he asked for a fork
to scrape up the icing. There was nothing left but streaks
of chocolate icing on his plate. Another happy client!
