my son and i had a ball making "pretend birthday cakes" recently. i cleaned out the cupboard of all the old edibles that were, well, not so edible anymore. i don't like to think that we are wasters of food, but at the same time, we did have a blast making these cakes. in fact for 3 days this was all he wanted to do. and he knows me. . . i love cake. even the pretend kind.
sprinkles of all kinds from years past of xmas cookies.
sifters, bowls, cups, spoons. we had it all.
and of course--candles!
the chef is hard at work.
this concoction was 2 kinds of flour, cornmeal, rice and sprinkles.
"i'm making snow, mommy!"
