Cupcakes for fun. And easy enough for a tween to make on her own. At our house, my 12 year old tween likes to bake for fun. And I do not mean from a box. She likes to bake from scratch. And I love that about her. Especially since I do not bake. Maybe that is why she keeps taking the baking into her own hands.
Last week we were snowed in, and she wanted to make cupcakes. Of course, I said knock yourself out. She took out her iPad and looked for an easy vanilla cupcake recipe. I am not going to list out the recipe, because you can just download it here.
She measured out all her wet and dry ingredients.
(Side note: Totally off the subject, but she has been wearing this sweatshirt for three days in a row. Special online order. It is almost all of Harry Styles tattoos. Just in case you do not know who that is, the lead singer of One Direction.)
Of course, the best part of making cupcakes is getting to lick the batter. Which her younger brother was ready for that task.
Of course, the reason why these cupcakes were being mades was for the frosting. Though this time instead of making her own frosting (which she usually does), she wanted to use this blue vanilla funfetti frosting. Not a big fan, but got to let some of the rules go every once in a while. I know it is bad for you. Of course, the cupcakes turned out amazing. Do you bake for fun? If you have a tween, do he or she know their way around the kitchen?
