I’ve already admitted that I am out of town. I have tried to prepare ahead of time, so I can still provide you with 365 days of how to be intentional in your parenting. This cake and activity I did a while ago. Today I wanted to post about getting your children involved in some of the things you enjoy. Your kids can really learn from you. They will learn the skills by watching and observing and helping where they can. One of my hobbies is cakes. I hope you were able to check out my Cake Making 101 and my Cake Making 201 posts. Hopefully, those encourage you to dig in and try your hand at cake making…whether you make it simple or complex. I also gave you a couple of my favorite recipes, including my chocolate cake and white velvet cake. This is definitely a post highlighting things I have done with my kids in the past, but it is a way I was able to get my kids involved in my hobby.
While I was working on my cake, I made a couple large cupcakes for the kids. They were able to frost by themselves and have their hand at working with some left over fondant I had on hand. They had rolling pins and cookie cutters and had a blast. While I was working on this Mario Cake. they were able to do their own cakes.
What a cute cake! I have a few family members that would love a Mario bros. cake.
My younger siblings and nieces just love “helping” decorate cakes whenever they get a chance. They’re so proud of their work when they’re done!
Thanks for commenting. The kids do love it when they can make their own edible creations.
Love your blog! My boys would adore that Mario cake!! Thanks for stopping by our blog youpinspireme.blogspot.com !!
Thanks so much for stopping by. You have a great site too. I hope you’ll visit more. 🙂
You are amazing! I am amazed that you are still blogging while you are away with your hubby! You are one amazing cake baker/decorator! Today out of the blue my 4 yr old said, “We LOVE baking with you, Mommy!” Melted my heart for sure! I try to involve them with me in the kitchen as often as possible, I just didn’t know it was impacting his heart so much. 🙂
Don’t be too amazed. I obviously had pre-done the activity. I also pre-did the post so that I wouldn’t have to spend our time away blogging. I’ve been able to catch up on some things on here as breaks happened naturally. I just didn’t want the pressure to get anything done while we were away. I am so glad your son loves to be in the kitchen with you. It is such an amazing place…the kitchen. Family seems to revolve around this one room. My husband still gets so excited about baking cookies, and I know it’s because of moments like that he spent with his mom. Good work, Trina.
This looks amazing! I’d love to share my Mario Cake with you too! Great work
I was looking for the cake on your site, but I couldn’t find it. Love to see it if you could send me a link.
Unfortunately, the photos won’t load for me. Based on the thumbnail at Feature Yourself Friday, it looks like it is an adorable cake. I wanted to comment that I really appreciate your statement about getting your child involved in your hobbies. I have a 2yo son, and we work very hard to try to keep him involved in the things we enjoy. I think that is such an important thing to do with our kiddos. 🙂
