We had the Across-the-road's 10-year-old daughter here today. She's recovering from an operation and is healthy as a horse but restricted in terms of activity so suffering greatly from boredom. She loves to cook so I thought I'd do some Easter baking and both girls could help.We made some yummy vanilla cupcakes and topped them with a basic chocolate frosting and some pretty m&m speckled chocolate eggs. I gave the girls a few cakes each, a little bowl of frosting and some eggs and let them go crazy.
Miss 10 produced these delectable treats.
Here's Little Miss at work. I love how hard she's concentrating.
And here's her finished handiwork. After the taste-test she declared them to be 'fanTATic' (nope, not a typo) and her Daddy was heavily leaned upon until he tasted one when he came in from work and was lavish in his praise of both the cakes and her artistic flair.
