Baking for school

On Monday, my son’s school had a Hallow’een Cake Sale.  My daughter and I baked gingerbread stars and madeleines.  Baking with children feels like a “worthy” activity – as long as you don’t snap at them.

I burnt the stars in the top tray so my husband ate those

My daughter enjoyed holding the electric mixer, rolling out the dough and cutting out the star shapes.  They ended up looking okay (the ones that weren’t burnt).

I was also one of the helpers at the bake sale itself.  An hour and a half of volunteering and my son now thinks that I am a magical person.  Quite a result.
