Cooking with Kids~Make your own cake

Cooking with Kids
I try to let the kids "stir and dump" when I cook.  I usually do not let them do everything all of the time because I am usually trying to throw dinner together fast while running laundry, picking up, quieting down kids, and a whole lot more!  There are special times that they get to crack eggs, grease pans, pour batter and the other fun parts of cooking! One of the things on our summer bucket list was to do a fun cooking project with the kids!  Big Sis has been asking to make and decorate her own cake for a long time but as a Mom of 4 it is hard to say to my 8 year old, "Sure honey, go ahead and make your own cake.  Oh, and make sure you clean up!" This project needs to be done with supervision and enough room for fun but not a disastrous mess! Along with the cooking lesson came Mommy's Lesson on keeping your hands washed, no licking unless Mommy approves and washing your hands more! 
 Here are the highlights of the project!
