Creative Baking

Elisabeth discovered the cookbook series, Hello Cupcake, and has since purchased three of the cookbooks. Her age is a plus because her creations pretty much require me to purchase cake mixes, frosting (from a can no less, gasp!) and various and sundry sprinkles and candies for completing the creations. And we get dessert, win win in my book.
Tonight the girls worked on Christmas light cupcakes.  They didn't have all the "ingredients" but proceeded as they had most.  It is nice to hear the girls laughing and chatting as they create since that is not always the sounds these two sisters create.


  1. Oh, very nice, and yummy looking. My daughter loves to bake, but with a raw egg allergy, it always takes a lot of tweaking to find things she can bake with our homemade egg substitute. I haven't tried box cake mix yet, but I need to try and see if it will rise properly. Seeing these cupcakes, I just might have to try a box soon. :)

  2. That's wonderful that they can find something to do together in harmony! Plus, not to mention the yummy results!

  3. Yum! Glad she likes baking. So did I...before the strokes. This year we are going to just going to buy cupcakes for the kids birthday.

    1. The kids will love the cupcakes, regardless of where they come from. Elisabeth might be persuaded to bake some for their birthday.
