Today, Jacob didn’t want to take a nap hence was a bit bored in the afternoon. After eating a mandarin orange, he started pestering me about “cup-cake” again so I decided we’d bake some muffins together. I’ve decided to call these “Bake with Jake” sessions.
Today, we decided to make pumpkin muffins. Jacob doesn’t actually eat pumpkin in its true form, but he loves his pumpkin muffins (we are becoming avid veggie smugglers)! So we got out our ingredients and readied ourselves. We found the recipe online on Kidspot so we had the computer open in the background to check our quantities (though we messed it up a little bit anyway).
Next, we mixed the wet ingredients. In the process of taking all these photos, mummy forgot about her pumpkin on the stove and burned it! Oopsies. Oh well. Jacob mixed the wet ingredients and mummy says, “No, Jacob, don’t eat raw egg!”
I think this was his favourite part – putting the cupcake cases into the trays. Jacob loves solving puzzles and having things put into their right place. After this was the messy bit though – I was trying to spoon the mix into the cupcake cases while Jacob was trying to take them away and pour them into other ones! Argh!
Just as a reminder – toddlers are pretty good at wiping up too! Jacob even wiped his face with the cloth afterwards, argh! 🙂 He was incredibly helpful today and I am sure he’ll really enjoy eating his “cup-cake” tomorrow.
