I’ve talked a lot about teaching children how to cook and letting them get to know their way around a recipe or two and navigate the kitchen.
I’ve talked about the many benefits; you’re teaching a life skill that might otherwise never be learned, your empowering your little darlings and boosting their confidence, you’re giving an understanding of how food ends up on the plate.
You also get THE most spectacular Mother’s Day cake baked and decorated beautifully for you.
You get to see a look of absolute pride and joy in making something so special – all by yourself. And then you get to put your feet up and dig in.
Victoria sandwich with raspberry jam and butter cream, my all time favourite.
Going to get some tips now from Amber on how the heck she got this icing so smooth…
