How To Enjoy a Rainy Afternoon

Lili and I decided to make cupcakes this afternoon. First she helped mix the batter and then she put the paper baking cups in the pan and then she helped put the batter into the baking cups. This is the point in which the camera came out.

Just look at the skill and precision used in filling the baking cups.

She’s got the process down pat. Scoop some batter . . .

Pour it in the baking cups.

Okay, skill and precision went a little downhill. Still, not too bad for a 2 year old.

She finished filling the baking cups and mommy put them in the oven to bake.
After they had cooled we proceeded on to the next step – ICING!!! Mmmmmm!!!!!

Such concentration.

Actually, icing the cupcakes proved to be a bit of a challenge so mommy took over. Mommy decided it would be best to have cupcakes that were still intact by the time they were done šŸ™‚ However, putting the hard sugary candy decorations on top was right up her alley.

And of course licking the icing off the cupcake and eating the candy was right up her alley too.

Mommy finished icing the rest of the cupcakes, Lili put on the decorations and here is the finished product.

What a fun filled way to spend a rainy Halloween Eve.


  1. That looks like fun! I spent the day assembling a crib. I decided even though we don't have a court date yet, it would give me something to do:) Have a great weekend and don't eat too many cupcakes and candy:)
