Cake baking!

We are getting together with family on the weekend, and part of the get-together is to celebrate my nieces' mother's birthday. We were asked to bring the cake specifically so the girls could help with it.

I'm not a "from scratch" cake baker, so I led the girls, 2.5 and 5, through the whole baking routine: wash hands, put on aprons, follow the instructions on the box to get all of the measurements ready, etc. My 2.5yo niece had a wonderful time pouring things into the bowl and the 5yo greased one of the pans and then helped me pour the batter into the pans. Of course, the "best" part of the whole process for them was licking the spoons afterwards. ;)
