Cake Tradition

Ingrit and Mama are developing a tradition of holiday baking for every holiday. Yesterday we made Halloween cupcakes. MMMMMM. (We used the "How to Boil Water" recipe--love that cookbook for simple done well for novices--no shortcuts, but plenty of good tips) Ingrit dons an apron and stands on a chair and we do mostly hand over hand baking where I hold her hand as she whisks, beats, creams, stirs, pours and measures. She's getting good at cracking the eggs! We are still working on not squeezing them once cracked...She is awesome at wanting to wash her hands a'plenty, so no fears about eating this kid's delectables. For Thanksgiving we're planning on a turkey cake.
