It’s been said that the kitchen is the heart of the home, and many of us will have great memories of baking with our mums when we were younger. It’s also a fun activity you might have now taken part in with your own young children, or something you plan to do in the future.
Making cupcakes and biscuits, or mixing melted chocolate into a bowl of cornflakes and dashing on too many sprinkles, is a great introduction to the world of baking for younger audiences, and there is nothing better than being handed the chocolate or frosting covered spoon to enjoy once you’re done (even as an adult)!
As we grow up, what nicer way is there to say thank you to mum for those happy moments spent messing up the kitchen with flour and buttercream than by baking something special for her? You might have recreated the cupcakes from your youth as a gift on Mothers Day, decorated a birthday cake with fondant icing and gathered the family round as she blew out the candles, learned to model roses from flower paste together, or baked her a Victoria Sponge and took it round one Sunday afternoon, just because.
