In a previous post I wrote about how I find baking to be therapeutic, I also just think it's fun, especially when I'm baking with Josiah. A couple weeks ago I had my first taste of Jello cake and so smitten I asked for the recipe. When I discovered it was just cake mix, holes, jello, and cool whip I knew it would be the perfect thing to make with my little chef. Here's a photo diary of the experience
|It's important to "read" the instructions first, |
Josiah's interpretation of them had me cracking up
|Josiah's favorite part about helping Mommy bake|
|We used orange jello because that's Josiah's favorite color|
|Forced smile "I don't want my picture taken with it, I want to EAT it."|
We just kinda winged but if you prefer directions I found some online here. If you have children this is a great recipe to try with them, it's simple (box mixes & cool whip), fun (they get to poke holes) and pretty (colored stripes). It also delicious.
