Norah has been inspired these days by this show and was wanting to branch out and bake something a little more fancy this week.
Her heart was set on a cake and she wanted to include berries with pink frosting.
She chose a recipe for a simple yellow cake from Joy of Cooking but added mixed berries that she had cooked down with some sugar.
She strained the berries to make a simple syrup which she then added to a cream cheese icing to get the pink hue she was going for.
Once the cake was cool she adorned it with fresh strawberries and icing where she got to use her new piping set she got for Christmas. She tested out each tip size and used the finest one for a face on each strawberry.
It was so much fun watching her come up with her very own creation. I helped a little but really just followed behind wiping and cleaning up.
Next week she wants me to have a list of ingredients laid out when she comes down in the morning to challenge her to make something with them.
I see a future cooking show star on our hands!
