Day 2 at Kid's Cooking Camp

 It was cupcake day!  We baked cupcakes and hey, guess what?  They all turned out!  Yeah!  Tomorrow we will decorate.

Over a breakfast of smoothies and fresh bread, we talked about how to set a table and table etiquette.
 Work station #1.  A very amibitious duo planning to make Black Forest Cake cupcakes!  Yummm
 This was our smoothie work station.  We had frozen fresh picked local strawberries, frozen local saskatoon berries, mango, banana, homemade yogurt, milk and a dash of ground flax or wheat germ.
 Then we put our heads together and started baking.  This was our attempt at chocolate buttercream icing.  I had no idea how I could not help 3 work stations at the same time!  Unfortunately this flopped.  Oh well.  I am making some up tonight so we can carry on tomorrow.  We must have chocolate buttercream icing.
 These are the Black Forest Cake cupcakes.  We are doing it the old fashioned way with 2 big spoons.  I don't have an appropriately sized ice cream scoop.

 And these are vanilla cupcakes with fresh picked raspberries baked into them.  Yum...Yum.  Great idea, girls!  And don't you love that production line?  They know how to move.
And what is making cupcakes without licking off the spoons?
 Now is the time to see how they all baked.  Look at all the smiling faces!  What a bunch of photogenic ladies.
