There is nothing I love more than a good baking session with my kids. We love getting into the kitchen for a fun baking session and going crazy. Yes, it is messy, but who cares? It doesn’t matter to me as long as we are all having fun. Last weekend we had three days off for the holiday so I used some of that time to bake with my kids in anticipation of my son’s birthday. Pillsbury had sent us a whole box of fun mixes and I let them pick what they wanted and then we got to work!

We had so much fun baking up a storm on the cold winter’s day. Our first activity was the birthday cake. We elected to make the classic chocolate cake in a bundt pan. I love that the cake mix can be used for cakes, cupcakes, and more, and in this case the bundt was requested! Then we frosted it with vanilla frosting and sprinkled it with LOTS of sprinkles. My son loves sprinkles so they were the most important part to him.

Next up was cookies! My kids never shy away from cookies and today was no different. We baked up the yummy box of chocolate chip cookies and made them into ice cream sandwiches. Which were, of course, rolled in sprinkles. There is no shortage of sprinkles in this house!

Since I didn’t want my kids on a sugar high for the entire weekend I doled out everything throughout the week. They had the best time enjoying all the treats they made and it is was the best way to spend an afternoon together. Thank you, Pillsbury for the treats, and the memories!
