Cupcakes from a crafter!

I am SO NOT a cook! BUT for a while now I have wanted to start to do a little bit more cooking/baking with the children. I thought it would be good learning skills for Jack and Amelia and just something we could hopefully all do together. We so need some good family time!

So when I saw that Jules had started up a Family Challenge Blog - I earmarked it straight away. Yesterday Jules announced the first Family Challenge - CUPCAKES!


Well I told Jack about it last night and he is making himself a bookmark and this morning as I did the housework, hubby went down to the supermarket for a few bits and I added a few ingredients onto his list! This afternoon we have had a great time, weighing out and mixing and we have just sampled our efforts. Not as light and fluffy as I would have liked but not bad for a first attempt at any baking (apart from a mixture in a box!) in quite a few years.

Thanks for joining in the challenge - I've reverted to a blogger template for now and fiddled around with the settings, so fingers crossed you should be able to comment on the Family Challenge blog if you want to link to your posting :o)
