Maddie felt it was very important that Mommy have a birthday cake. Although Dad was bringing one home, she felt it wasnâ€™t really a birthday cake unless it was homemade. So, she took matters into her own little hands. She went to her supply of cake mixes and got to work! We purchased a set of great kids baking mixes from Sears, check it out here. Maddie selected a vanilla cake and vanilla icing.
Maddie put her mix into a bowl, added milk as directed, and stirred the lumps out.
Next, she put it into her heart shaped mini baking pan, and baked at 350 for 10 min.
Tip: Instead of using a toy easy-bake oven, which never seems to bake very well, use your toaster oven. It still looks mini and toy-like, but cooks evenly. Of course it gets hot so Mom or Dadâ€™s help is needed.
While it was baking, Maddie helped clean up.
After baking and letting it cool it was time to make the icing and decorate! Maddie used vanilla icing and fresh berries, since Mommyâ€™s not so keen on the sprinkles 😉
Here is the beautiful cake and the beautiful baker!
Then, we got set up for the party, which I was informed can not begin until big sister and Daddy get home.
Life truly is a party, when youâ€™re blessed with a thoughtful little baker like this!
