What a fun Summer time!!!

I can’t believe it’s true but me & Pari spent exactly 4 months of vacation together, And I must say, it was whole lot of fun !!! Apart from all the travel & vacations, which I will write later, we did lots of interesting things. As she is eagerly waiting for her school to start from Monday, and I am in my memories how we spent these time, so much involved that I didn’t even reach  my blog.

1. Cakes, cupcakes and more cupcakes– Pari loves to bake cupcakes and loves to style the cake, and so do I. Me, being such an amateur in the world of baking just trying to learn the ABCs of baking, take lots and lots of help from Pari. I never bake when she is not around. I love when she sits on the dining table, and insists all the ingredients to be first kept on the table like this.

All the ingredientsShe mixes butter, sugar and chocolate chips so well.

It's all done

Then she sifts the flour.

Then she mixes all the dry ingredients and add onto wet ingredients. Next, I do the finishing touch and keep everything in oven. Once the cake is ready & it’s cooled down, she loves to decorate it with cream and colorful sprinkles.  This one is, when we were trying to make pineapple cake for PP’s B’day. She loves to make these cakes, but will never ever eat it. No reason why.

I read somewhere, if you involve kids in cooking, they would get more interest and their eating habits would change. But alas, it doesn’t happen with me.

2.  Cookies, Donuts – Pari loves to help me a lot when I am baking, because she knows it involves lots of mixing, and she is more than happy to lend her hand. And me, being such a messy mama, I will whole heartedly accept it. Even though it takes a full hour to  clean up. In these 4 months, we made cookies so many times may be 6 times. These are the pictures of among the first timers. Pari loves to cut all the shapesLet me cut the cookie

and Here is all her effort. Ready to Bake. I love the heart ones.

Aha!!Lovely shapes

And, these are the pictures when we were making whole wheat flour jam filled cookies.

6. Colors, Colors and lots of colors : She loves colors and such a coloraholic, she wants to add colors in everything. Be it cakes, cupcakes, ice-cream, cookies and the list goes on. She loves anything which has lots and lots of colors.

Love for colors-Nail Paint

We Loved making colorful ice-popsicles throughout the Summer. By taste, she likes only orange flavor, but she wants all the colors: green, red & blue in the popsicles. Even I love making these at home, much-much better than popsicles you get at the store.
