Cakes your Kids Can Make

Children love to be in the kitchen. It's where all the action is. Teaching children the joy of baking at an early age will help them in many areas of their lives. Over the years I have designed cakes that kids can make. Below are examples of goodies you can create with your children.

Caution: Please make sure your children knows the dangers in a kitchen - hot stove, hot oven, heavy objects, scalding hot water, electrical items near water, sharp knives, hands in the garbage disposal and using electrical appliances that can cause harm if used incorrectly.
