Ms. Whisk cooking with littles!

Over the holidays Ms. Whisk had the pleasure of cooking with these 2 three year olds twice; while on vacation. We made a Dark Chocolate Cake for Christmas and Cajun Pretzels for snacking. They had so much fun putting ingredients into a bowl and then stirring! Flour was all over the counter for playing in and for flying through the air. Their favorite part about cooking was stirring and then of course tasting!!
