So Kendall had a learning experience yesterday. She wanted to make a cake out of her Highlights Magazine. So I said okay and let's do it. All we needed to buy was a lemon as it was a Lemon Cake and we had all the other ingredients. She was so Excited!!!
So we got the little ones all laid down for a nap and went to work making her cake. She proudly dumped all the ingredients into the bowl and then stirred them together. We followed the directions slowly and carefully. (honestly there was only like 4 steps)
After the cake was baked we headed to Praise Team practice. Kendall was anxious for her dad to get home and to get to serve her cake after dinner. After we were all cleaned up from dinner we set the cake on the table and helped her cut and serve the cake. She was being a 3 year old and took the first piece cut forgetting about her hostess duties. (Guess that will be a lesson for a later date. LOL!!) She put a dab of whip cream on each piece. I was looking forward to it and being the proud mommy took the first bite. WOW!!!! If I ever wanted to eat play dough I don't think I would have gone to the trouble of baking it first. I did not want to hurt my little girls feelings and continued to eat my lemon flavored play dough. K.C. only made it one bite in. I anxiously awaited Kendall taking her first bite. She excitedly took a good size bite. I could just see how proud she was, but then her expression changed. It changed very quickly and out came the cake right back onto the plate. She said, "That don't taste very good". You could just see the disappointment on her little face.
This just goes to show even with mommy's help things don't turn out perfect. She will try a new recipe soon enough I am sure and hopefully we will get an A from Daddy and the biggest critic, Kendall herself.
