Cake Decorating with Kids

I spent a couple hours yesterday doing this:
The boys' school fall festival is today and this year we decided to attempt the cake decorating contest. So while they were at school, I got busy making two three cakes. When they got home, and after the cakes had been cooled, they got busy with the icing and decorations.

I didn't get any action shots of Henry making his cake, mainly because I had a billion things going on at once, but here is the finished shot of his Campfire Cake. It is a big version of THESE cupcakes that we made for his birthday last year.
Grant made a Candy Corn cake. After the cake was cooled, I cut it out in the shape of a candy corn and put a crumb coat of icing on it for him. Then we colored some orange and yellow icing and he got busy making a SUPER cute candy corn.
I was pretty impressed with Grant's decorating skills. He did an awesome job smoothing out the icing and was very particular about getting it just right.
I think it turned out pretty cute for a 5 year old decorating it...I don't think I could have done much better!
Pin It!

Wow. Grant did an AMAZING job!! And it looked like he's learned one of the best thing about being a cook is the ability to sample what you're cooking! :)
