Calum (10) has been very keen to do lots of baking these last few weeks. Not just me making all the things he likes, but him learning how to bake them himself.
Last week we made some wheat and dairy free gingerbread using our trusty old recipe - and also one of the first recipes I shared on the blog, which you can find here.
He shared this photo with his friends on Instagram along with the caption 'had fun learning to make gingerbread with my mum today.' How sweet is that?
His favourite thing to bake is cupcakes, both the vanilla and the chocolate type. He has the recipe memorised and the only thing he needs help with is cracking the eggs in, as touching raw eggs will cause his hands to break out in hives.
As well as baking the cupcakes, he also takes great pride in decorating them nicely too.
And he very kindly lets Alasdair help lick the icing spoons too!
Look what an amazing job he does of the decor!
They taste as good as they look too.
