Reasons why baking a cake with children is fun and educational:

  1. Quality Time
    First of all, involving kids in the process of baking allows the parent to spend quality time with their loved ones.

  2. Homemade cake recipes give a hands-on experience
    Creating something from base ingredients always promotes a sense of wonder. It is wondrous how this whitish powdery substance becomes something as substantial as a cake. And of course, what an immensely powerful feeling it gives to realize the outcome lies entirely in our hands. The baker decides the fluffiness, density, how chocolate or sweet the cake is. We can show our child to become the influencer of the result.

  3. Additive-free and free of artificial coloring
    Baking cakes allows us to determine how the outcome makes our bodies feel. Additives and food colorings sometimes trigger allergic reactions. When baking yourself, you have the option of using natural color if required.

  4. Opens communication
    A cake is a treat, but it is in the baker's hands what the quality of the ingredients is and what amount goes in.  Knowing about the ingredients, children are more susceptible to communication and accepting the consumption of the treat in moderation.

  5. Sense of wonder
    Despite often similar ingredients, the outcome is varied, such as puff pastry, shortcrust, sponge cake, yeast cake, and batter, where their main difference often lies in the amount of butter, sugar, and liquid. The final decision maker what the outcome will be is the mixing speed, the sequence of adding ingredients, and the raising agents.

  6. Awakening
    With growing experience, young bakers uncover the knowledge of influencing consistency, taste, and looks quite easily.

  7. Best of all
    With this, the chore of baking a homemade cake recipe morphed into a memorable and valuable experience. The best of all is celebrating your baking success with a treat. Yes, you guessed right with a piece of homemade cake.
