my daughter’s a genius at abstract marshmallow art


I think that fact is well-established now, yes? Seriously, you should see her with a frosting bag. She can even pipe swirls now (sort of). And she can roll out cookie dough AND cut out her own cookies. Only sometimes is there way too much flour.


Just a quick reminder for those who don’t mind their kid getting occasional sugar and who need to kill some time:


wax paper (for under the mess)


food pens


That’s it.

    I agree, wax paper when baking with kids is a god sent.

    We need to get our kids together, they would do magic with cookies. Cami is pretty good with the piping bag also, she even knows how to outline and then flood the cookie with the bottle.
    Of course, when she’s done she has royal icing every where from head to toe.
