Busy Baking?

Time flies and this little girl is now helping me in the kitchen..well my biz name is after her “Kalea’s”, so i think its okay to train her and let her do what she likes. Ground Rule: she must always wear hairband, hairclip and apron before helping me with the ingredients, of course clean hands:) She always ask permission before mixing the flour, roll the gumpaste and cut the flowers. Thursdays to Sunday are the peak days and she knew that mommy cant be disturb especially when im decorating cakes. Monday and Tuesday are my kids day, as much as possible ill spend time and play with them including baking/bonding time with Kalea.
