I remember when I was a little girl my brother making cake for The Blue and Gold dinner. He got to decorate it himself. It must be something every little boy (and girl for tha matter) wants to try.
My boys were really excited when they were told they would need to bring a cake to the dinner. We were told we only needed one cake per family but each boy wanted to decorate their own. I had thought to just make one cake but divide the batter between two pans but Henry wanted a vanilla cake and Ian wanted chocolate. I ended up helping them each make their own cake.
Then on to Ian's chocolate cake.
He was quite proud of his work.
