The smaller kids were learning how to tell time on analog clocks yesterday, and I was helping them practice saying the times in English. Jonna and Linn Sophie told me (in English/German/hang signals...) that they were going to the store to get supplies so they could make a clock cake tomorrow. This was the first good sign...anyone uses any excuse possible to bake is a kindred spirit of mine.
So this morning as I went out for a run, I walked past the kitchen and they called out to me to come see the cake they were working on.
|The work in progress!|
|All the kids (and me of course!) gathered around to help take care of the last bits of icing in the pan!|
|Adrian came late to the party so he was shoveling in the cake crumbs quickly!|
|Jonna scrapes the last bit of icing out!|
|Lena, Linn Sophie, Ava, and Jonna were the main cooks...and here they are with the finished project. An amazing clock cake! (and we did practice telling time with it...so it was at least a little bit educational!)|
