My daughter called me to tell me that she had made a cake with Sofia and that it had turned out awful. I replied that if they followed instructions for the easiest cake at the Joy of Cooking, the would have a wonderful cake. But it is easier to go to grandma´s. So, I will have to put some order at the house so that Sofía does not find ALL the chocolates I was given for my birthday. And I will have to find the recipe I like (it has 3 yolks no whites). Then I beat the whites to cover it Maybe it is easier to give children a tablet and take a nap

My 5 year old chef will have lots of fun, but will not learn much yet.

@arthurchappell If I knew how to send a picture from my tablet to this computer, I would show all of you a picture my daughter got of Sofía stirring the dough.

If they were to follow the instructions of the recipe the cake would have come out just fine.

I know. But it depends on the recipe they used.

@marguicha I would think the recipe was accurate so I wonder if they used more of one ingredient than they should have.

@Marcyaz They confessed that first they thought it was too thick so they added more milk. Then it was too soft so they added more flour. OMG!!!

Baking a cake is fun. Following a recipe isn't that difficult is it?

Some find that way true with the tablet and nap. I find your way better for them. They will learn how to care for themselves and family.

True! I did not really mean it. I taught my 2 daughters to cook, sew and knit when they were girls. They can do it if needed or if they want to do it.

Well, Grandma is the best baker of cakes, so Grandma's house is the place to go when cake trouble comes along.

Sofía was very proud of herself and very happy that she could take it all home.
