Birthday Cake.


Girls are always sweet and demure. They eat their food neatly and pleasantly without mwwam *snort* mmm sounds or food-throwing. Elf and Emperor were given a box of cake mix, a dozen eggs, vegetable oil and a measuring cup and told to make the cake themselves. All I did was put it in the oven. D gave them a grade of only a B plus because the cake did not have an interesting shape. Rectangles, apparently, are not interesting enough. I think to get an A, the cake had to be multi-tiered and decorated in italic frosting script. We'll just take the B. :]

  4. Aw, how sweet of her brothers to make her very first birthday cake! The way you're teaching your kids to cook and sew is amazing - I suspect in a few years, you will sit down to a gourmet, multi-course meal every night, served on hand-sewn placements!

  5. Hey, if they can just feed themselves peanut butter sandwiches and mac and cheese and clean up after once a week, I'd be happy. I'm looking for reasonable self-sufficiency in this area. To me FOOD SAFETY is a biggie, the wash your hands and don't lick your fingers while cooking for others... that sort of thing.

    D actually made leather placemats awhile ago. Apparently they're pretty pricey other places. :]
