It's starting to get chilly in Düsseldorf, making it perfect weather to turn on the oven and bake. Mario loves to bake with me, and I love when he bakes with me too! When we bake in the kitchen together we create memories filled with warmth, teamwork, aromas, and yummy desserts. We also have fun learning about counting, measuring, sharing, patience and the importance of real food-based nutrition. I love having a little helper in the kitchen, and Mario loves to sneak cake batter when he thinks I'm not looking. I did catch him with his little hands in the batter once or twice, but he looked so darn cute when he got busted! His favorite part of baking, however, is the final outcome: his dinosaur cakes and mini bundt cakes. He was super excited to put candles on his mini bundt cakes and to blow them out... he even surprised me when he dug the candles out of the drawer himself and said "the candles too Mama". Of course that was the best part... who doesn't love to blow out colorful candles and to make a wish?
