Christmas Holidays Activity Ideas Day 3
Cup Cake Baking
Children of all ages love having the opportunity to cook or bake. The age of your child will dictate which part of the activity your child will enjoy the most. Babies under a year will enjoy exploring and tasting the mixture and eating the end product. As they near the one-year age children will also enjoy helping to mix but they may not stick at it for long. As children are reaching the age of two they will begin to enjoy the whole of the activity, but they too might enjoy tasting as they go so expect this. Older children will enjoy “reading” the recipe below with you and will begin to be interested in the changes that occur to the mixture they put into the oven during the baking process.

How we make the dough:
Take 110 grams butter
Add 1 x sugar
Add 2 x and mix in well
Add 2 x flour little bit at a time
Add 2/3 of a milk to the mixture
Add 3 x and mix in well
Place in cupcake case
and then in a baking tray
Bake in the heated oven 190C or 375 F for 15 minutes or
until cooked. Then take them out of the oven carefully using mitts.
Leave to cool .
If you don’t mind your child having the additional sweet fix you could ice the cupcakes together once they are cold and decorate them. Have fun making and eating these together.
