baker in training

last night i started on my cakes for this weekend. we have a party to attend saturday, and then our own party on sunday. i was planning a sheet cake for sat and some kind of tiered round and cupcakes for sunday.

but my daughter really wanted to help me make the cakes. and after she recited an entire scene from strawberry shortcake where s.s. meets angel cake for the first time and they work together on a cake for apple dumpling... can you see where this is going? so i let her help me after her brothers went to bed.

and it was so much fun! we haven't done anything like that in awhile. i've tried. but with both of the older kids together, they always start to fight and the "supposedly" enjoyable experience becomes a big headache. but she and i, one on one, was a blast. she cracked the eggs (about as well as i do) and she pretended to read the recipe ("we need 4 cups of milk and 4 eggs") and she informed me that making chocolate cupcakes was hard work. she wore her little apron and stayed up late helping me work. i always pictured that we would have three girls, and this is exactly why i wanted that. what a doll.
