Birthday Cake

Today is my dad's birthday so the kids and I baked him a cake this afternoon.  It was the first cake they did together and they did a great job.  There wasn't any fighting, yelling, no mess, nothing got broken, and no one got hurt.  I would say that is was very successful. I see more of this kind of thing in our future. It's fun to do stuff like this with them now that they are a little older and have a real interest in cooking and baking.  I am doing to try and find lots of things for us to bake/cook over the next couple of months for the holidays.  Anyway, they really did a great job this afternoon. They took turns putting ingredients into the bowl and they were really careful using the mixer.  Isabella surprised me with how well she can crack eggs into a bowl.  I was a proud momma!  We took the cake to my parents and everyone loved it.  The cake tasted yummy and the kiddos got lots of compliments on it.  I'm sure this is the first of many cakes for them.

Getting all of the ingredients in the bowl and ready to mix.


 All done and ready for the oven.  

Isabella had the honor of frosting the cake while Ian was napping. 

She wanted to do a little graveyard scene on the cake.  I think she's happy with how it came out.

All ready for grandpa's birthday.
