Have you ever noticed that you can bake gorgeous cakes at any time, but try to bake one the night before your child’s birthday party and then it’s a disaster? You forget the baking powder. The icing melts. It burns. True story, it happens to us every year.
We were thrilled to find this book, More Easy Party Treats for Children by Janet Mocke Penguin Random House (ISBN 9781432305598). It’s a no-bake party book and the ideas are awesome. As in, we haven’t seen it a million times on Pinterest already. And it’s really no-bake.
We wanted to try out some of the ideas. So we let the kids choose a design that they liked. They chose the train and we gave them the ingredients and that was it.
The ideas are easy enough that they could do it all by themselves. They loved building the trains and loved eating them even more.
This is an awesome book to use for parties or just for fun. The kids have listed all the other things they’d like to make. As you can imagine it is a long list. And they have chosen their party themes for the next thirteen years, we’re just wondering how we’re going to explain that some of the themes might not be entirely appropriate for a 21st birthday.
This is the second book in the series and we’ll certainly be buying the first one. You can purchase Janet Mocke’s books online through Exclusive Books.
All your baking woes sorted. Enjoy!
