Baking a Cake

First of all...ta dah! What do you think about my new blog design? I fell in love with Kristina and Crystal's blog designs. Go check them out...

Today AnnaKate and I got out of school early due to some snow. So I decided today would be a great day to do a trial run of her birthday cake. If you know me, you know that I plan way ahead for birthdays! AnnaKate is having a cupcake themed birthday in April. I am using the Williams-Sonoma Giant Cupcake Pan to make the cake. I have heard mixed reviews about the pan so I wanted to do a test run. I also want to decorate it with fondant...so again..this is why a trial run is needed!

We set out to make the cake together. This was our first big project in the kitchen together.
AnnaKate seemed ready for the challenge.

We got the ingredients together.

Silly girl thought she was playing with blocks. Get back to work AnnaKate!

One of her jobs was to unwrap the butter.

After cracking the eggs she just had to touch those strange looking things.

Here is our cake heading into the oven for 80 minutes.
No final pictures...it is still cooling.

We really had a great time today. AnnaKate giggled and took it all in.
You will have to wait until April to see the cake! :)
