Toddlers eating hours of work

post #1 of 56
Thread Starter 
I was so proud when I finished this RIT that I took a picture of it. I then promptly ran upstairs to email the photo to my mother who lives in Germany, hoping she was still awake so I could show it to her. Luckily she was, and said she loved how it turned out. Sadly, I left my toddler downstairs while the icing was drying. Lesson learned. icon_smile.gif

Thanks, Uniqueask. I agree she is too cute. I was shocked for about a second, and then I had to laugh. It wasn't her fault I left tasty icing within her reach.

Thanks for the reply, Kiddiekakes. It sounds like you have some smart kids. icon_smile.gif Actually, this may turn out to be a good thing. I wasn't really happy with the color of the outlining. Now, I can have an excuse to go buy some good black food coloring. icon_smile.gif

I can sure sympathize with you! I made my mom a cake for her birthday at the beginning of this month. I was so proud of it (it's the pink buttercream with chocolate ganache in my photos). I put it in the fridge and went to get ready for the party, when I came back to get it out of the fridge it had two HUGE bites taken out of one side. I stood there with my mouth hanging open and turned around to see my 3 yr old standing there with chocolate all over his face...looking at me with big innocent eyes! I said "What did you do?!" , he shrugged his shoulders and said " I didn't do nuttin." I was so glad the cake was for my mom because she thought it was funny. Had it been a paid order...not so funny...lol What a precious memory it made..Im quite sure yours is too! I love how she still has the fingers in her mouth even though she was "caught red handed" icon_biggrin.gif

been there and done that a million times............I have 3 kids, now 10, 7, and 5 all of whom love anything with SUGAR especially mommy's cake and icing...sooooo now we have a deal.......if they don't look at/talk to me or TOUCH anything remotely near the kitchen when I'm working on a cake, they get all the scraps when I'm finished! (minus the cake scraps I sneak into the freezer for cake balls lol)........all the random pieces of fondant, cake, cookie, etc. they get it all in a bowl and they love it!!

my_4_dumplins, thanks for sharing your story. Your cake turned out beautifully! I'm glad it was for someone in your family, too. Really, your cake is gorgeous. Hopefully, someday I can make one like that. It's definitely going into my favorites!

We've all been there...When my son was in kindergarten he took a pencil and picked every lace point off of a dummy cake I'd done. icon_mad.gif

My daughter never did anything like that, though, for some reason. When she was about 2 she would walk up to me while I was decorating and say "Is dat cake fo us?" I'd tell her no, and she would say "Is fo a yady?" (Lady). I'd tell her yes, and she'd walk away. Such self-control, I never understood it.

AH nature at its finest;kids and sugar they just can't help it! Hopefully your second attempt turned out smashing! I can totally relate to this post. I have a 2.5 year old son who just loves to be involved in my baking expeditions; I call him my apprentice. Sometimes he makes for serious trouble in the kitchen though. He'd eat every flower I make if I let him whether it is fondant, gumpaste or royal icing it really does not matter to him. He also loves to steal my piping bags....so much so that I started to fill one just for him whenever I had one out and I'd let him pipe onto paper plates so he'd let me get my stuff done!! I am attaching a picture that I almost forgot about taking until I read this post. Take notice of the spoon he was using to scoop up and eat all of the icing he had piped...YUM!!! Well happy baking to you and your young one!!

That is just too cute! I know I have threatened mine many of times when it comes to the cakes... haha. But I have also started bribing them with the cake balls and of course the occasional leftover scrap of MMF.
