It's been pretty steamy in these parts the last few weeks, and I've done my best to avoid the stove and oven as much as possible. But, on our last grocery run I made a turn down the baking aisle only for Marcus to quickly spot the Funfetti cake mix and Funfetti frosting. Who am I to deny my little man the simple pleasure of the goodness of Funfetti? I was mindful in knowing an early morning baking session wouldn't heat up our house, so into the cart went the cake mix and frosting.
One early morning this week my Curious Chef grab his very own baking tools and help me whip up some delightful Funfetti cupcakes.
Curious Chef tools are some of his favorite things to pretend cook with in his own little kitchen (his all time favorites are his spatula, cupcake decorating kit and the tongs - sweet Judas he's obsessed with those tongs), and the Curious Chef tools are actually designed for real cooking and baking.
Our baking adventure looked like this (never mind we're still in our pjs and our bed head is on point. I did mention it was early morning, right?):
We placed cupcake liners.
Curious Chef tools. He was in heaven. Any time I tried to step in and help he quickly dismissed me and informed me he could do it all on his own.
The hardest part for both of us was waiting for the cupcakes to bake (20 minutes is an eternity to a 3-year old and a pregnant lady who is jonesing for a cupcake), and then we had to allow the cupcakes to cool before frosting them (another eternity of waiting). I heard, "Mommy, can we put frosting on them now?" No less than 84 times. But good Lord, when I let Marcus loose with the Curious Chef cupcake decorating set it was worth the wait.
How about those finished cupcakes.
We had the most fabulous morning: I let my child loose in the kitchen with his Curious Chef tools, he was able to truly help bake some goodies, we were able to do something fun and different with our morning, and we both were left eating tasty cupcakes for breakfast.
Breakfast of champions, no?
We may have also had cupcakes after lunch, too... #motheroftheyear
