I have cheated this week and pulled a photo from the archive…
I love to bake. ever since I can remember I have loved to make cakes and then eat the rewards! Now having children its become even more of a fun and rewarding activity.
Moo loves to join in and help. I always try and involve her in the preparation process and I let her pour all the ingredients in and mix them together, even with the complicated recipes! I think its good to get them involved! She has become to love it just as much as me.
The most enjoyable part for Moo is the end part, the licking of the spoon! Now up until a few months ago, I had not enlightened her to this, but she sneakily tried a bit and I managed to capture it without her seeing and I love the picture, I loved the way she gently swiped her finger along the to get some mixture and it made my heart melt when she tried it for the first time, it took me back to when I tried it. That to me is what baking as a family is about, the little bits in between, getting to eat the leftover cake mixture!
This is an ordinary moment in our house, something simple which me and Moo love to do, and of course we get some yummy cakes at the end too!
