December 4

We love to watch The Great British Baking Show, especially this time of year. Today we tried a technical bake challenge (recipe and directions for marbling the frosting here). I mean, it’s baking with kids, so of course there were tense moments and lots of mess. And Clara came in third; there were tears. But overall there was more fun than fighting, more pride than disappointment, and more “look at this!” than “stop that!” I hope they remember days like this as the we-always ones.
