Happy Father's Day!

I LOVE to bake, yet I hate to cook. Does that make sense? Desserts are just more fun to bake than say, a rack of lamb. This father's day the kids wanted to make daddy a special treat. I came across a recipe for Snickerdoodle cake that sounded delish so we decided to give it a shot.

First the kids wanted to dress the part for some serious baking.

How cute is she?

And check out this adorable future chef!

Collin measured out the flour...

...and baking powder.

Carlee stirred the sugar. Sort of.

Collin was VERY excited to use the beaters. Luckily he didn't make a horrible mess which was nice!

Little flour face.

Carlee did some last minute stirring before we put the batter in the pan. I'm pretty sure she did a little bit of tasting too. :)

Here's the result! A yummy cinnamon snacking cake! We put a little whipped cream on the top with some cinnamon just to dress it up a little.

The kids are big fans of whipped cream. Can you tell?

I think everyone liked it and you can see the recipe on my food blog. Hope everyone had a good Father's day!
