So as I mentioned in my last post it was my mothers birthday on Monday and I let my son pick what cake we would bake her
I tried to persuade him to pick a white chocolate gateau but we ended up with a recipe for cupcakes. Not only does he share my sweet tooth but he also knows his own mind as well and there was no budging it, I can not for the life of me think where he gets that from…..
Anyway here are the pictures as promised
Needless to say Nanny loved her Birthday treat and so did we!
Just to get a little bit more mushy on you my son said something very sweet the other day I was struggling to put my trainers on and he said to me “don’t worry mummy I will help you now you are big” and he did how cute is he?! he also offers his hand to help me up off the sofa if he thinks I am struggling to get up. I wouldn’t mind but I am only 6 months pregnant! (although i will admit to struggling to put my trainers on just a little 🙂 )
I have a sweet tooth I do try to be good but who can resist the call of chocolate?
Add to the sweet tooth the fact that I enjoy baking and it all equates to very little willpower
So last week when the baking bug bit me I tried to look for a healthier option. I found an oat and raisin cookie recipe…. ok I may be fooling myself but surely a cookie with fruit in it is classed as healthy right???
My little helper was there to… well help! considering he is 3 I was impressed with his concentration skills he was in charge of the bowl and spoon and did a superb job his new favourite sentence is “I am the helper, I am good at helping” lets hope he is still saying that in ten years time.
I have been doing a little sewing I promise it is not all about my stomach! although my family would be forgiven for thinking it is.
