The proof of the pudding is in the eating

So, that Betty Crocker easter cake that I said would be idiot proof? Turns out I'm a bit of an idiot! The  final cake actually looks ok, to say it was made by a very poor cook and a toddler, and most of the making was fine. It was the removing from the tins that caused the issues. However, we did a bit of a cake jigsaw and it turned out fine.

As with most boxed cake mixes it was just a case of adding a few wet ingredients to the dry mix - in this case egg, water and oil - and then give it a bit of a stir.

For the 1st time ever, apart from doing the measuring, I really just left Charlotte to it. She was very happy slopping the mix about and divvying it up between the (apparently not well greased) cake tins.

Then it was a simple case of popping in the oven for 20ish mins, removing from tins (easy peasy!), leaving to cool, and then decorate.

Admittedly, not all the chocolate eggs and toppings made it onto the cake (not only Charlotte to blame for that!) but it looks ok and she had so much fun. She loved just having free reign.

Now to take it to granny and grandpa's house and share. Hopefully it tastes ok, but even if not, look how chuffed she is with it.

Happy Easter!

ps Apologies for the messy kitchen, but let's face it. This is just what a kitchen looks like when your toddler is let loose in it to make an Easter cake in their Christmas pjs!!!
