Y4 - 162/365: Pancakes?
I've been getting my Baked & Delicious baking magazines for some time now. Every couple of weeks I get two new issues with new silicone moulds or baking tools for less than a tenner. I decided to finally have a go at using one of my new "toys" and I invited Ryan to "help" to make star-shaped fairy cakes.
He loves doing all the mixing and adding ingredients and Daddy even helped him do the scooping into the moulds since the mixture was a bit more watery than usual.
We chatted while we made them and I kept referencing them as fairy cakes, which is what the British sometimes call cupcakes, but Ryan insisted they were pancakes.
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
