Proud of my little baker....

On Friday when I was having a sick day Stu took Ellie to school and on the way she came up with the idea of making me a cake for Mothers Day....She came up with the idea of a cake with green grass, flowers and mini eggs on top....She let Stu know what she needed so he could add it to the shopping order....

She asked Becky if she wanted to help but Becky still wasn't too well with the flu and didn't want to spread her germs into the cake. Very sensible of her....


Ellie got her apron and was ready to bake. As it was a sandwich cake Stu made the first half just to show her what to do and she made the second half all by herself....

It was hilarious listening to them.....Ellie got rather bossy saying "Mam doesn't do it like that", "Mam does it this way", "Just let me do it, Mam would"! 


Ellie didn't need any help at all with making the cake....The only help she needed was with putting it in the oven and getting it out....She did the usual thing of sitting in front of the oven waiting for it to bake....hehehe

When they were cooked Ellie waited patiently for them to cool and then we remembered we had no icing sugar....Oops. They had to take a trip to Asda to get some and Ellie needed more decorations.... 


When they got back it was on with decorating it. Jam was put in the middle and this is where Stu failed at taking photos....He will never be a blogger....hehehe

Ellie came up with a great idea of adding desiccated coconut to the icing to make it look like grass. She's so clever at times. They used Mini eggs and flower decorations to decorate the cake and I think it looked fantastic.


I was so proud that my girl came up with such a thoughtful idea for Mothers day....She knows how much a love cake so it was perfect and it tasted delicious too....

  1. I think the cake look amazing! The dessicated coconut was such a clever idea, well done Ellie! My kids are like her with the "mummy said..!", it disheartened my hubby sometimes because he felt like everything he said is wrong lol. Mummy is alright right :p x
