Cupcake Masterpieces by the Future Baker

Share:
I had some work to get done at the Bakery this morning,
Henry tagged along.
[That's something new for me. 
Henry tags along with Dad to work at the Bakery quite often.
But never with me.]
I wasn’t sure how it’d go.
Then I thought maybe he could make his own cupcakes
while I’m decorating a cake.
It worked perfectly!
Henry really enjoyed himself.
And I got my work done.

———–
Here’s how that happened:
———–

I handed Henry a dish of buttercream and a spatula.
Along with four chocolate cupcakes, of course.
[One for each of the family: Dad, Mom, Henry and George.
But what about Blue Dog? - Henry said he'd share his with him.]

I didn’t give him any guidance.
He just somehow knew what to do.
First, he iced the cupcakes.
I was already using colored buttercream for my cake,
I just handed Henry the pastry bags for him to decorate his cupcakes.
[you could use Ziploc bags and just cut a tiny hole in the corner.]

And of course, he added colored edible glitter on top.
In all sorts of colors.


Green.
Blue.
Yellow.
Orange.
Red.

He even added a couple ‘Happy Birthday’ picks!
I absolutely love them.
Henry’s creation.
Completely on his own.
Henry definitely had to end his fun project by eating his creation!
I’m even coupling this project with a book!
[a first for me!]
After our cupcake fun, we headed home and it was time for Henry’s nap.
Henry requested The Baker’s Dozen for his story.
The Baker's Dozen: A Counting Book
This book is a great counting book!
Counts up to 13 with bakery goods.
With a recap in the back of the number and goodies.
Henry tells me the number on every page.
He still has a troubles recognizing 10-13, but today he got them all but 13.
[he usually tells me its a 1 and 0, instead of 10.]

    They look PERFECT to me! Isn't this just the way it should be? When we let go they learn so much more. Something I need to remind myself daily :-)
