Welcome to my blog. I have started this blog to chronicle my cooking adventures with my two boys, ages 6 and 3. They are very enthusiastic in the kitchen, especially for the end results! We have just finished a birthday cake for grandpa….will post pictures when it is finished.
I am very novice but enthusiastic baker. So, when I enter the kitchen and try something new there are always lessons to be learned. This effect magnifies when cookng with *young* kids. For example, with this cake, I learned a valuable lesson about cooling the layers. One would think that the counter is a logical place to cool your cakes. I thought so too until I came back to discover the 3 yr old had been “snacking” on one of the layers. Very fortunate that this was a cake for a grandparent…a category of people preternaturally disposed to finding all foibles of their grandchildren (and their grandchilren’s resulting projects) adorable. I did try to take a picture of the architecturally challenged (yet tasty) cake but I am having some technical difficulties with my camera.
