Poor Sophie really felt like she missed out. Her birthday was a little over a month ago, and we celebrated with gifts and a treat at Sweet Frog with some friends. But she didn’t get a birthday cake, and she’s been asking for one ever since. So when I was looking for something quick to bake for a day of having five teens here for class, and she asked for a cake again, I had to oblige.
She donned her apron and quickly set to helping and was joined in moments by an eager little brother and older sister. We weren’t making a big cake, but fairy cakes instead, and the little girls especially loved the idea, talking about all the different kinds of fairies there are.
Zach walked into the kitchen mid-conversation:
Zach: “Sophie, what are you making?”
Sophie: “Tooth Fairy Cakes.”
Zach: “There are tooth fairies in the cakes?”
Zach: “What do tooth fairies taste like?”
(No fairies were harmed in the making of the fairy cakes, though we did lose an egg or two.)
