I have baked with the first two kiddos a couple of times before but Jaide has never been allowed to participate because of her penchant for disregarding instructions and tendency to make a mess. I am grateful that her school conducted a parent-child baking session so that I wouldn't have to worry about the teaching, preparation and cleaning up part of the experience. Yay!
|Eager to get started|
Since she was such a menace in the kitchen (getting in the way, being dangerously close to the stove, pulling down my pants while I cook etc) she has also been banned from helping out in meal preparations too. And so, this is her very first time cracking open an egg. As you watch the clip below, notice how she didn't quite follow my instructions. Sigh...
|Hard at work|
Jaide liked the way I made the leaves so much that she insisted that I remake her handiwork to look like mine! LOL The moulding of the fondant was definitely my favourite part and I think Jaide did pretty well making the flowers.

|Tada! Flower pot cupcakes completed!|
Jaide was in a terrific mood the whole time and I enjoyed the time spent even though I was actually not feeling well. I'm so glad to have created beautiful memories with her, just the two of us.
