Well, don't you have those days, where you just feel like baking something. This particular day, not any special day or anything, I felt like baking a cake with the little one. Oh, you should have seen the look on Sophia's face when I mentioned it was time for a cake bake. She was very excited and was ready to bake the cake.
We started out getting all of our supplies:
Chocolate Cake Mix (Love it, don't get me wrong, I make my own cake from scratch too, LOL)
Apple sauce (substitution for the vegetable oil)
Red Sprinkles (she loves this a lot)
Now, we gather all of our supplies together and start to pour everything in a large bowl. With the help of my wonderful assistant, everything went pretty smoothly. She started to help me mix the batter, it looked absolutely yummy. Then, into my baking pan I poured all the smooth chocolate batter. I placed the pan in a pre-heated oven of 350 degrees. Now, we just have to wait for it to bake.
While it was baking Sophia had some fun licking the spatula and her face was full of chocolate. I told her she looks like she has chocolate lipstick on. Once, she was done, we started to clean up the mess we made. When everything was finally clean, we were ready to take a peek at the cake and yes, it was baking pretty well. Every 2 minutes, I hear a voice calling me "Mama, the cake is getting bigger". She was literally sitting in front of the oven, staring at the cake. I was just laughing how funny that was.
Finally, the cake was done. We placed it on the stove to cool down. Then it was time to place the frosting on the cake. Sophia's favorite part. She was really a professional at it. Can't you tell? LOL. We wanted to add something extra to the cake. Sophia wanted her favorite red sprinkles, so that was added on top of the cake. To top it off we placed some fresh delicious strawberries on the cake and in the center. Voila! What do you think? Does that look yummy? Now it was time for a slice for us to eat. mmmmh, delicious :). Why don't you stop what your doing and go and bake a cake or something delicious! Happy baking and come back for more fun recipes.
