Best Cake Ever

Want to have the most fun ever making a cake with your kids? Make this cake! I found it on Meg's Blog Whatever. During the process of making this cake, the laptop was up and running with two pages, one was Meg's site and the other was YouTube, I had directions and Jaylee had tunes. While mixing Jaylee asks, "how does she know so much?" of course, referring to Meg. So a huge thank you goes out to Meg! We had so much fun, thanks of course to all the fun inspiration from your blog.
Betty Crocker's got nothing on this girl! How did we get a Betty Crocker box in Paris? We've had visitors and I requested it. Gel food dye, just in case you were wondering cannot be found in my neighborhood, again good old USA, land of hydrogenated fat and artificial coloring.
Meg had warned that this cake takes a while to assemble, bake and the dishes would be plenty, she was not kidding. I also failed to take into account the childlike size of my appliances, counter space and kitchen!The contents of my refrigerated were out on the balcony! The kids were dying to get a bite of these colorful cakes, so when I cut the tops off, they were ready to taste test. We ended up having cake for supper. I am a good mom like that.
So, what did this masterpiece look like when my little one was all done mixing and baking?
We took it to school of course! She was so excited and the kids loved it, and yes I loved it too!When Claire cut into the cake the whole class went wowwww! I of course pushed the wrong button on the camera and missed it, but here is some fun footage from her and her class.



Lastly, I leave you with this, I hope you all have as much fun cooking as this girl!!!

What an awesome and exciting cake! I let Bryce watch all the videos and look at the pictures. I explained to him that was his cousin and that you guys lived in Paris, France. He liked it so much, when the video ended he turned to me and said "I want to go there!" : ) Thanks for letting us in on the fun experience. Hope you are all doing well! Love you!

You win the Mother of the Year contest. I only did that at Christmas with the Christmas cookies. I was never brave enough to do it more than once a year. Now my kids do it themselves and I just watch and eat the fruits of their labors. Boy I miss the little ones.

Kate Gosselin's got nothing on you. You should have made it red white and blue layers. With "Dont Mess With Texas" across the top.
