Little Chefs – 16th April

Welcome back to Little Chefs. We skipped a week last week, because Potato had an accident and I spent most of last week in and out of A&E, emergency dentists and finally hospital, where he had 2 smashed teeth removed under general anaesthetic. Thankfully, like most toddlers, he’s bounced back well and we’re almost back to normal here!

So we’re back with a new week of Little Chefs. If you’ve been baking lots over the Easter break, please feel free to share as many posts as you like.

Muddle Puddles Puddleflex Jacket

Spring is officially here and down here in Kent, then sun has definitely been trying to make an appearance. Brighter longer days make me want to get out in the fresh air and blow some cobwebs away. Despite the sunshine, there’s still a notable chill in the air though and we’ve had to wrap up warm.

It’s been the perfect weather for testing out our new Puddleflex Jacket from Muddy Puddles.

Usborne Books Children’s Cupcake Kit

I’m a big fan of Usborne Books. I’ve been buying them for Potato ever since his was a baby, so I was really excited to be given the chance to review their Children’s Cupcake Kit.

Cupcakes are a great thing to make with children. The basic recipe is really simple and ideal for young children to learn about the processes involved. They’re also really simple to adapt into new and exciting favours and style. You can change flavours, toppings, size and even cases, and end up with some wonderfully personal creations. You can let kids go wild with icing and sprinkles or aim for a more restrained pipped effect. The results are almost always delicious and fun.

The Usborne Books Children’s Cupcake Kit is a really lovely addition to any cookbook collection.
