I was recently asked if I would like to write a guest post for Cake Catera and because I love baking (even though I don’t get to do it often enough) I instantly said yes 🙂
As I have said before, I really do love baking but it can be stressful when you include a toddler in the mix (see what I did there?) but it really doesn’t have to be. I have a list of 3 things that you can do to make it more enjoyable and not too stressful
1) Try to stick with easy cake/cookie mixes that are not too complicated as that way it’s not too long and they won’t get bored.
2) If you have time, get everything ready before you start. Measure all the items and put them into pots so your little has to just pour them in at the right time
3) I know its hard but try not to stress, just relax. If you do stress, you will only regret it. I used to stress and try and clean up as they were going along and it just made them stress and have a tantrum because it wasn’t fun any more.
I think if you stick with them, you will be fine. I know it’s so tough not to stress but I promise, once you let go and they have fun, you will not stress ever again.
What are your tips with baking with a toddler? What is you favourite to make?
