Kids in the Kitchen – Monsters University cupcakes

Welcome to this weeks Kids in the Kitchen. We had a busy weekend, which is when we do most of our cooking, so we didn’t have much time in the kitchen. However, while doing a quick supermarket dash Boo spotted a cupcake mix which was only £1 so we bought it and I let her and the Little Man make some Monsters University Cupcakes.

Now, I know I like to promote learning in the kitchen but there are still things to learn from cupcake mixes. They are quick and easy to make, but you still have to read the instructions. I left them to it with very little supervision and they did a good job. The only change they made was to add some colouring to the icing.

Kids in the Kitchen is a weekly feature on Raisie Bay and usually at this point in the post I give a shout out to those that have linked up the previous week. Unfortunately, there wasn’t anyone so fingers crossed you will join us this week.The linky is open for a month and if you need some inspiration do check our Pinterest Board.

Monsters University Cupcakes.


I packet of cake mix
1 egg
6g butter
3 tbs water


Here is Boo reading the packet instructions

She started by turning on the oven. Then she fetched a bowl and put the mix in along with the butter egg and water and whisked it all together.
Then the Little Man joined her and they took it in turns to fill up the cake cases which they’d placed on the baking tray.
Boo put them in the oven, under supervision and we waited around 12 minutes for them to cook.
Then the icing was made by mixing the packet mix with a little food colouring and water.
They both had fun decorating the cakes.

So now it’s over to you, get in the kitchen with your kids and come and share what you’ve cooked,

I’d also be mighty grateful if you included my badge in your post so others can see it and come along and join in. (although adding the badge is not compulsory to joining in)
