That's awesome that you're encouraging him! I brought some cupcakes and had 3 kids decorating them. My 10 year old nephew Loved it! I was surpised.. he's very much a Boy. But they were all having a ball trying out all the different tips. Doesn't hurt that they got cupcakes with icing piled as high as possible to eat afterwards
my two year old and five year nephews get involved all the time when i make cupcakes...and my son and daughter who are 13 and 10 both know how to make roses!!!! hahahaha they are so cute!!! i am the proudest mommy ever!!! great job teaching the little "bro-ski"
That is pretty good!! I keep saying next time I make a cake I am going to let me 3 1/2 year old son play around with the extra...I need to let him...He always wants to help and the only way I keep him happy is by squeezing rosettes or huge dots of icing on a plate and letting him go to town...Hehehe I agree it is wonderfull to encourage them....
Great idea maybe I'll let my grandsons give it a try.
I would recommend to all of you with children or garnds that are interested to find out if your local fair has a junior division for cakes (or anything you might interest them in - plants, drawing, etc.). It is important for us to get kids involved in these things.
My 7 yr old wants to enter a cake this year. I like it cause our fair uses the Danish system for judging - they don't all just get blue ribbons-they actually have to earn it!
Adorable. He should stick with it he'll be great in a few years.
thanks for all the replies, I'm going to show them to him.
It's actually pretty funny, I've never actually done basketweave myself. Wonder where he got the idea to try it...? Guess I must talk about it a lot or sumthin.
By the way, I don't think I've ever said this anywhere, but I'm only 14 myself. There, I said it.
You are doing great! Keep practicing. So maybe you need to go to the fair too....
I'd love to enter a fair like that, but I don't think there's anything like that around here. If I ever do find one, I'll see if I can possibly fit it into my schedule!
I used to do cakes for 4-H and they were at the fair that way.
