My boys enjoy baking too. I never seem to make enough time to share the joys of cooking. It's not that my mom never did it with me, it's just that cooking is not something that I enjoy doing. I am trying to change this though. I have purchased new kid themed cookbooks and grabbed a couple food themed magazines (Boy do I like the Food Network one). The boys each have their own homemade aprons, cars and trucks of course. We lay out all the ingredients, mix and stir, and then sit and wait for the goodies to rise and proclaim that they are ready to be sacrificed to the beings watching through the window.
Our Best Bites have offered up some fun cupcake ideas for April Fools. I am so thankful to their easy step by step instructions with pictures. They make it so very easy.
I would have never thought to make healthy food themed cupcakes as a silly treat. I'll be stopping by the store today to pick up some ready made mini cupcakes so we can get to work tomorrow on our bite size treats. They may not fill the air with mouth watering goodness, but maybe that will keep me from eating the whole batch on my own. Mmmm!
