I almost forgot the deadline for the cooking with kids cupcake challenge was today so thought I’d better hurry up and post my entry!
When I told my daughter we were making cupcakes as a challenge her friend Miss Frugal’s mummy had set, she couldn’t wait to get baking and I think she’s done a fantastic job! She loves icing cupcakes (and licking the bowls of course!) and wanted to try out her skills with a piping bag. I was dreading it as I make enough mess myself when I use one and I’m not exactly great at icing cakes this way, but after a few attempts she was icing and decorating them with little pink hearts (for valentines day) beautifully and she’s very proud of herself!
Here is her creation:
Now I know I’m biased, but I think that’s one hell of a cupcake for a 9 year old to make and decorate herself!
