BAKING W/ JACK!!
Not too sure If I am sharing something new, but I LOVE to bake! And I’ve been told I am pretty good at it.
Well, it was this year’s Christmas cookies that were the inspiration for the above cupcake pic. Our neighbors Upstate recently adopted 2 amazing children, a brother and sister, and when I delivered my Christmas cookies this year one of the Mom’s commented that the kids would love it if I would come over someday and bake with them. Well I was extremely flattered and wanted to do one better. So, I invited the kids over our house for a Bake Date. It was part date, part learning experience and all fun! The cupcakes pictured at the top of this post were the creations from that Bake Date.
I got each of the kids their own set of piping tips and bags and may have gone a bit overboard with the toppings. Peeps, Cadbury Malted Eggs, Jelly Beans, Peanut M&Ms, Easter Candy Corn, and 5 different colors of frosting. They had a blast, got quite a sugar high and hopefully learned something too.
Then that got me to thinking…….why wouldn’t any parent want a Bake Date with Jack? Your kids will be occupied for approximately 4 hours, learn some of the fundamentals about baking, have a blast and you as parents get 4 hours to do whatever you want. A win win!
So I am officially making myself available to the parents of Manhattan as a baker to their kids for a Bake Date w/ Jack!
