Baking with Children: 2 Resources to Inspire You

Posted By Jessica Fisher On April 15, 2009 @ 3:30 pm In Baking,Ebooks | 1 Comment

Baking with children is, indeed, a fun, family activity. I can vouch for it. We just survived an all-day baking frenzy, the kids and me. Although I know from experience that it’s a good thing, sometimes I need a little fresh encouragement to tackle the adventure. Ever feel like that?

Over the last year, I wrote two ebooks that I am convinced will help families have fun together and save money. They are guaranteed to inspire you, particularly as it relates to letting the kids join you in the kitchen!

[4]The first is a guide to cooking with children. You know that cooking from scratch is a great way to save money. And if you prepare these dishes with your children’s help, it’s also a cheap form of entertainment. Not to mention that you’re teaching them life skills in the process. FishMama’s Guide to Cooking with Children [5] features:

  • Seasonal kitchen activities for parents to enjoy with their children
  • Over 25 kid – friendly recipes sure to satisfy even the pickiest eaters
  • Safety tips and tricks for easy kitchen clean-up

[6]The second book, entitled, Pretty. Cool. Cakes [5], is a handbook for creating your own festive birthday cakes at home. Usually bakery cakes cost upwards from $12. For less than half that, you can create a fun, theme cake that looks cooler than ones you would pay for. This book features a baker’s dozen (13) of themed cake designs, including The Breakfast Cake [7], Fancy Nancy [8], and Indiana Jones [9] as well as a basic tutorial to craft one of your own design.
