My little daughter will be 3 next month. My mom found a toy mixer for her recently with four little beater attachments and a bowl, it even lifts up like my kitchen aid. Last night my little one when over to her Elmo play kitchen, got out her mixer, and told her dad she was making fondant.
That is so cute! Hopefully she won't actually try to mix stuff in it! My sister and I had a play kitchen set when we were little and decided we would cook our own food... We tried making applesauce, and we borrowed her meat tenderizer to mash it up. My mother was not too happy with the mess we made! We got grounded for 3 whole days, which felt like forever!
My 4 year old daughter started baking at the age of 2 and can now make her own cake with out help, weighs the ingredients and mixes them all up. The only part she needs help with is the oven.
