MM's adventures in cake baking

He already knew
  • how to read the directions
  • how to crack eggs
  • how to turn on the mixer
He learned
  • 1 1/3 != 11/3
  • why we crack eggs in a separate bowl
  • how to get egg shell out of the egg bowl
  • he's strong enough to hold the mixer himself (with two hands)
  • patience

He ate

  • a piece of cake the size of his head

Yay! MM learned a lot of very useful things. Did he enjoy it and want to do it again?
And what kind of cake? Inquiring minds want to know.

Yellow cake with chocolate frosting.

And yes, he would like to do it again please.

my mom never baked. the first cake i made was at a friend's house, and my friend's mom helped me hold it together with toothpicks when it fell apart, and i got to take it home with me!

Cool. It's good to learn to cook early.

PS - I've missed you; I've been behind on reading posts, and it was nice to catch up on like 15 posts from you.
