Welcome to this weeks Kids in the Kitchen. This week Boo insisted she wanted to make chocolate cupcakes so I left her to it. The Little Man came in to help with the decorating. I’ll tell you how they got on in a moment, but first I’d like to say thank you to those linking up in the past week.
It was lovely to see the return of the beautiful Miss T from The Beesley Buzz who made some scrummy Postman Pat Cupcakes.
Monkey and Mouse shared three fabulous dairy free recipes for kids, Pizza Pods, Fairy Cakes and Bread Rolls.
And the lovely Annabel from Tickle Fingers has been busy cooking with 50 toddlers over six days while raising loads of money for Save The Heroes. Do take a look at her incredibly inspirational post which is also full of fabulous photos and great tips for cooking with toddlers.
I share all posts on my Pinterest Board which is a great place for inspiration.
