Leave it to Santa to bring Charlotte an Easy Bake Oven. Helping her try to make too-small-to-even-be-worth-the-effort cupcakes was a disaster this afternoon. I managed to get the tray stuck inside the thing and had to get Daddy to help fish it out. Not before I slopped cake batter all over the little metal doors inside that have to be closed on both sides to indicate the baked good is cooking. Well thanks to an impossible oven exit strategy Charlotte’s first creation was overcooked. And I misread the frosting mix directions to add one tablespoon of water instead of one teaspoon. It looked like cold pink soup. My mom used to add powdered sugar to thicken up her frosting–I actually retained that one. Of course I poured in too much and a few stirs rendered it somewhere between thick paste and cement. I suck at cooking with real ovens and little kid ones.
