Pearl made her first chocolate cake last week. She has helped me bake before, but not made one “herself”. She wanted to take a cake to share with her class.
She did very well, with minimal help from me. It does help that our standard go-to chocolate cake recipe is exceptionally easy and almost no-fail. Her classmates really liked it, and her teacher was very impressed.
Keen to capitalise on this, I suggested she make another one this evening for her Dad’s birthday tomorrow. Fainjin and Babess pulled a chair over to the bench to watch, just as they do when I’m baking. Once again, she did a great job.
Next I’ll have to teach her how to make buttercream icing.
