Come take a picture of this, Mom


That’s what my daughter said the other day, calling me into the kitchen.

And when I went in there, this is what I found:

messy cupcake chocolate

She’d been baking again, squeezing brownies into cupcake molds using a plastic bag, and the bag popped.

As you can tell, that didn’t stop her. (Somehow, we always end up with a kitchen disaster.)

But that’s okay. The brownie “upcakes” (what she ended up naming her half-brownie/half cupcake creations) still turned out great.

beautiful cupcakes

Don’t you think? :)

    That is impressive!! Whenever we have kitchen disasters like that (which is way more often than I should admit to) they never look so…finished in the end. Kudos to both of you!!!

    You know…cookies were made accidentally and look how that turned out. I think she might have something there with her "upcakes." Very clever…and beautifully decorated.

    They are beautiful! You are really great to let her have so much freedom in the kitchen. She will probably grow up to be a world famous pastry chef and tell stories of how you let her make beautiful disasters in your kitchen!
