Daphne turned three on Friday. She is such a big little girl. Her only birthday request was to make her own birthday cake, as her big sister had done for her birthday. A chocolate chip birthday cake with chocolate icing and sprinkles, to be exact.
And so, of course, she did…
Daphne made her own birthday cake, doing every step herself from cracking the eggs (one of her all-time favorite things to do), to pouring the ingredients (I admit to measuring them myself, for the most part), and mixing them. I read the recipe of course, and made sure all the ingredients were put in in the correct order, and put the cake in the oven and such, but the work of cake making was all Daphne's.
And boy was she proud of her job!
The apron is made using Sew Liberated's free Child's Apron tutorial, by the way. Maia and Daphne each have one. I think they are the best cooking aprons for young kids because they can put them on themselves
—they slip over the neck easily and the waist strap closes on the side with velcro.
