EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

"Let kids go down the list of ingredients and help you gather everything from the pantry. The youngest always gets the job of placing the cupcake liners in the pan. This will make them feel important while the oldest gets to measure out ingredients. I let my oldest pour the measured ingredients in and then my youngest gets to add chocolate chips once she is done with the cupcake liners. Turn the oven light on once you have them in the oven so everyone can watch! My youngest has been known to pull up a chair and sit there watching during the whole "show"! I make the icing, and the kids are both taste testers to make sure it’s good enough for their cupcakes. Give each child a bowl of icing and a butter knife and let them ice their cupcakes, providing chocolate sprinkles and chocolate chips to use as decorations. Share with family and friends and brag on what a wonderful job the kids did!" - Christy Jordan
