|Baked with love.|
My kitchen adventures started when I was very young – about 3 or 4. I would perch on the kitchen counter and help my mother or nana mix batter, or sort through dry lentils or roll biscuits. There are (apocryphal) stories of me dazzling the relatives by recounting the ingredients of recipes.
It feels natural to continue the tradition by having my kids get their hards dirty (literally) when I bake. My daughter at 7 is a fairly accomplished baker herself and very enthusiastic. My son is a Master
Pâtissier – at least where iPad apps are concerned!
When I found out (a little late!) that Rangecookers were running a competition to create creative cupcakes, Anya threw herself into the task. Her ideas were slightly outlandish to say the least but we collaborated and, ahem, compromised to create these incredibly delicious Raspberry Lemon Swirl cupcakes – with a hidden message!
PS: you don’t have to have both sprinkles AND buttercream but my daughter would not budge on the sprinkles. So there you have it.
|Hmm… not entirely sure ingredients are quite right! And we need to work on that spelling.|
