She made better cupcakes than I do !

I send Kimberly to a baking class during the one week school holiday. Before Ashley was born, we have a once weekly baking session, where Kimberly would choose a recipe, and we would go about buying the ingredient and set aside one day to bake. Just the two of us.

After Ashley was born, there never seem to be any time for Kimberly. Ashley is always clinging to me. Even now.

Kimberly has been wanting to have a baking session forever.

I am not even a good baker to begin with, but I made do.

Sometimes I get sprinkles for her to decorate, and sometimes, she would pipe icing on cakes and cupcakes.

But in dire straits, this is how our cupcakes usually turn out to be.

Plain !


So, Kimberly went to a baking class at The Cake Connection at Jaya One, PJ during the school holiday.

This is not a substitute for mother and daughter bonding time, but it will tide things over till we have some time for baking together.

I came to know about The Cake Connection from Nancy . Kimberly is always asking to check out Nancy's blog for the cupcakes. She calls it "the chieh chieh's blog with the flowers and butterflies".

Good thing she hasn't discovered Alice's blog yet. Else between both these blogs, she would be hogging the laptop whole night long !

Anyhow, when I took Kimberly to the baking class, she positively love everything in the store. The sprinkles, the ready made fondant figurines and petals, and everything sugar and pink and nice !

Kimberly came out from the baking class with 6 cupcakes.

There's 4 left now cos one went into her tummy and the other went into Ashley's tummy.


She made better cupcakes than I do. ha! ha !

These are the kids hard at work.

Under watchful eyes.


High Five !!!


The proud little bakers !


This is her sitting around waiting for me to pick her up.



While waiting , she helped herself to a cupcake.


Thumbs up for the baking class, Kimberly says.


Seeing her hair like that always makes me resist the tempation to reach out and tuck her hair behind her ears. If she is in front of her peers, inevitably, she would go, "MOMMA !!!" ever so loudly !

Anyhow, Kimberly ask to go for baking classes again if there is another one coming up over the next school holiday. She keep telling me, "Mom, I will teach you how to make cupcake!"

If she is going to be baking better cupcakes than I do, I would be more than eager to drive her around for her baking classes, haha.

    Mumsgather, you don't bake? I had thought that you do.

    Hi Rachel's mom. My stuff are all up in the uppermost cabinet. But since visiting the store that day, I am now feeling more inclined to bake.haha. And I am glad someone thinks her messy hair is somewhat charming.*wink*

    Nancy, I rather think she would like to make them for herself instead.haha.

    Jacss. me too leh. Am thinking I would be needing classes myself.

    Angeleyes, my Kimberly? That will be the day.haha. I think she is in it only for the fun.

    Andrewjune, my sentiment exactly !

    wannebe supermom, she not that terror yet leh !

    Sandra, she where got so terror can take order, haha. But she decorates rather prettily, yea?
