Baking with my Baby!

Pin It
Happy Marti Gras! 
Leave it to Facebook to remind me that it is Fat Tuesday!  Although I had anticipated making a huge pot of Vegetarian Gumbo, I just didn't have time to go to the store and get the Rue together and go to story time with Rory....So we decided to made a King Cake instead, because we had all the stuff lying around and because I have never made a king cake before!

I had never had one or even heard of them until the Superbowl with the New Orleans Saints.  I was pregnant with Rory and we went over to my friend Jenny and Russell’s house.  They are both southerners and both thrilled that New Orleans was in the Superbowl.  One of the things they had there were was a king cake- and I went insane for it!  I'm normally not one that does the “Eating for two” type thing, but I made an exception...I ate a ton! 
So, Rory and I decided to make one today.  She really likes to help stir, and she did the icing!  Of course I helped with the icing, and with the stirring, but it was really cute to see her help!  

She never used to be big into helping bake or cook, until we got her some cooking supplies for Christmas.  She now loves to stir and she even sautee’s!  (For Sauteing, she just gets a saute pan and moves it back and forth but she will say “saute it”...its cute!  Here are a few pictures of her cooking.)




I was trying to get pictures of us making the King Cake together; but it was kind of difficult since I had one hand on her and we were working on the cake together...grabbing a camera would have been too hard.  But here is a finished look at our King Cake and Rory’s icing work!
