Late Night Bake Night // k 'N kae Photography // Colorado Springs

Tuesday, September 29, 2015

I promised the girls, if they were well behaved all weekend, we would bake Cake Pops in our new cake pop maker after school on Monday (the Baby Cakes - Cake Pop Maker arrived VIA Fedex while they were in school (Thank you Amazon.com for free 2 day shipping!) We started after everything was cleaned up from dinner -- because I knew if we made them before dinner, we wouldn't be eating until 8 or 9 pm. Well they had lots of fun, and this just a fun blog of some of the moments and the turn out of our FIRST CAKE POPS! Enjoy!

I am not entirely sure why K1 was giving the stink eye! I believe it was because K3 wanted the box of cake mix and Keira was all "She can't even READ mom!" I told her that was okay, and she could see the box, but that I would need her to read for us! Big sisters are so much fun! ;) 

 It was Kassidy's job to pour the cake mix, we had everyone help, because I knew if someone didn't help her, we'd all be dusted with flour!! She was okay with the help!

It was Kaelyn's job to put in the margarine- She is so graceful! (She actually ended up getting butter all over Kassidy and her elbow and on her face, don't ask me how! And Keira's job was to get out the eggs... she was super confident with her egg handling! We didn't have any mishaps!

It is a good thing we are not professional bakers! This here folks is a sneeze caught in the act. And little miss almost 3 year old still has yet to learn to cover her sneeze! Luckly it wasn't directly on any of the food, and it was likely just from the flour dust! It made me laugh!

 There were three eggs, and three kids, so each of them took turns cracking eggs!

Kassidy cracked her own egg, but Keira helped her open the egg - so we didn't get any crunchy shells into the batter!

Eggs are so fascinating!

Kassidy started ( I just had to change that K from a C five times because autocorrect even on my MacBook Pro KEPT changing it to a C without even asking me! How Rude!) 

Kassidy started to get a little upset that I told Keira to finish, so we had a grand cheer and some claps and praises about how awesome she did breaking the egg! (Distractions are KEY to parenting lol) And I totally missed focus (its on Keira and the egg) but I just couldn't throw it away!

Kaelyn was being super cautious not to get shells in the batter! She may have been a little grossed out when she (like the margarine) so gracefully got the egg white all over self! Kaelyn can't do anything without it being a mess, from feeding herself, to baking! But we love her!

They all took turns mixing the batter! They look like they're having so much fun....... *insert sarcastic emoji*

They said they tasted like waffles! But they LOVE Belgian Waffles in our stainless steel Double Belgian waffle maker!

The second batch came out slightly better! But no where near perfect still! Its a good thing I won't be going into business baking these things! But it will certainly save us some money! Kassidy LOVESS cakes pops from Starbucks!

This was Keira's face to me taking off the "Burnt" cake from around the pops. They were saying how it was cool because they all looked like planets with Rings around them! FACT!

All Pretty now!! Keira ate the "Burnt" pieces. Whatever floats your boat kid!

Our Third Batch came out nearly perfect. Okay, I take that back, they came out acceptable! I could totally justify wasting sticks and frosting on these babies!

Katie, or K4, was sitting watching behind me the whole time, chowing down on Yogurt Melts and Cake Pops! Kid Tested! Mom Approved! Isn't that Kix?? The girls had a lot of fun! Tonight we will decorate them! If I don't eat them all before they get out of school!! Thanks for reading! We all had fun!! And they are pretty delicious!
