Arora bakes with Grandma Kathy

Arora and Grandma Kathy are baking together. Arora gets the little step stool. They carefully measure the sugar, flour and other ingredients. They are making a special birthday cake for my 28th birthday. Later that evening grandma has to frost and decorate the cake alone because Arora went to bed early as she was adjusting to the time difference.

Happy Birthday to me! The cake was wonderfully dense and chewy.  I included the next few photos so you can see how quickly Ender goes after the cake.Here is the recipe Kathy used:

  1. It was fun to bake with Arora! By the way, I have to mention that I LOVE that little green stool. I think you should post the info about how wonderful it is and where to get them.
