(Goblin is 29 months)
Hublet normally does baking with Goblin but he was away on a stag do today, so Goblin and I made biscuits. We used our standard gingerbread recipe:
350g/12oz plain flour
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1.5 tsp ground ginger
175g/6oz brown sugar
4 tbsp golden syrup
a) waiting until I say before trying to add an ingredient, and
b) only adding the amount I say we need.
We had some interesting interpretations of the recipe when we started out on our baking escapades, and I would never have dared to put all the ingredients down on the mat, because he would have grabbed at them as soon as they were in front of him. Its nice to see progress in following instructions and patience.
I'd bought some icing tubes. I was able to decorate using them but Goblin found them too stiff. After letting him struggle for a while and when he'd eating half the tube, I decided to snip off the other end making a bigger hole that was easier to use.
But we did manage to get a few good ones for Hublet when he gets home.
I'm sharing this with
