Callie and I baked a cake on Thursday night before she went to bed! She was such a good helper :) What you need to do to make your OWN Magic Jelly Bean cake - is to simply pour your batter into two small cake pans (circular).
My little thief! She is SO her mother here :)
Yup - SO GOOD! That was all she got, but man - she's right - it's SO GOOD!
After the cake has cooled (for us we did this Friday night), frost ONLY ONE of the cakes! Callie did a great job - she only managed to sneak a little frosting :)
Then I gave Callie a little bowl of jelly beans...this she stole a lot of...man she has her mother's sweet tooth!
She did such a good job putting the jelly beans all over the cake :)
I explained to her that these were MAGIC jelly beans and that hopefully, tonight while she was sleeping, they would GROW!
Just trying to be artistic :)
She was really concentrating really hard! It's so fun to do stuff like this with her now too. I was able to say, "Okay Callie, put a green one on the cake" and she'd reach in and pull out a green jelly bean!
While Callie was in bed, I put the other cake on top of her jelly beans and frosted them together! Looks like one cake :)
In the morning, when Callie woke up, I asked her if she wanted to check on her jelly bean cake! This is what she came out to :)
I think she is a little excited, don't you :)
She kept saying, "It's SUCKERS!" She then proceeded to pull out each one, lick it, put it back and take a new one out! Yeah - we didn't share this cake with anyone else :)
Happy Easter! Make sure to try your Magic Jelly Bean Cake :)
