Baking Up A Storm!

Baking Cupcakes!

Today just felt like a cupcake kind of day! I prepared my environment by laying out all of the ingredients needed to bake cupcakes and Arlo joined me in his learning tower to help put the ingredients together and mix them all up. 

I used Cupcake Jemma's recipe for this one as these cupcakes are fail safe and turn out perfectly every single time! 

Once cooled, we decorated with icing and sprinkles and sat as a family to eat one after dinner! Yum! 

This is such an important experience for children. At only 18 months, Arlo is a bit too young to bake indepen dently, but that doesn't mean we can't involve him in the process! He is more than capable of pouring the ingredients together, stirring and even spooning the mixture into the cupcake cases. He iced the cupcakes entirely independently and while there was a bit of mess, I thought he did a great job! 

Don't forget, you can also find us via our Facebook group and on our Instagram account.
