“You are the sum total of everything you’ve ever seen, heard, eaten, smelled, been told, forgot – it’s all there.” – Maya Angelou
Last Wednesday’s challenge on partner Susan and my alternate site was titled KIDS N TREATS.
Do you think that all children are merely avid consumers of all the cakes, cookies and pies their parents offer them?
In the majority of cases you may be correct but a precocious youngster named Avery ( she will be four years old in May) recently asked her grandmother if she could help make a square cake ( of any flavor) the next time one was being made.
She did not want to bake a heart-shaped cake ( she had seen cup cakes for Valentine Day ) and did not want to make a round one either. When asked for what occasion the cake was being baked she did not know but guessed it was a birthday cake.
This was her first attempt at baking a cake. She had helped her mother make sandwiches before but this time she wanted to bake a cake.
And so the square 9″ by 13″ vanilla cake presented in the above photo was made. The inside of the creation was pink and a yellow food coloring used for its color.
A tip of the Betty Crocker baker’s cap is raised in her honor.
