Everyday for 2 weeks my daughter watched me bake cookies, brownies and bread. Things that I could do without the recipies. She was always amazed at what would come out of the oven.

Finally, I told her she could help me make cupcakes. As we began, I started to tell her what to put in each time. She told me "I can do it like you, I know what I am doing." Although I still made sure the correct ingredients made it in that bowl, I will never forget how proud she was thinking that she could bake cupcakes all by herself. She even insisted on frosting them and decorating them all on her own.

Now cupcakes are a monthly tradition for my daughter and me and it's a tradition I hope that she will pass on to her children one day.

What a cute picture! It reminds me of when my daughter was little. She loved to help me with what ever I was doing--especially baking. My favorite picture of her is with her standing on a chair rolling out pie dough, all covered with flour. Now, I bake with my grand daughter and have a similar picture.

Your daughter looks a lot like the pictures my grandmother used to take of me when I was a little girl. I loved everything my grandmother made and looked forward to the times we would spend together in her kitche. It was always a special time!

Thank you for sharing, it is always heart warming and extremely pleasing to hear all these great stories. Cooking is the closest to Heaven on Earth that we can experience, true love. Thanks again and God Bless.

You just never know what kids can learn from the examples that we set and show. They can be such fast learners

What a wonderful memory and tradition. I'm sure when she grows up she will tell her kids this wonderful story and have baking traditions with them. It's nice when kids want to help and learn. Thanks for sharing.
