Kid-Friendly Cupcake Baking

I totally suck at creating food that people can eat so I had this grand idea of training my girl to cook so that she can be the chef of our family (*laughs*).

Anyway, I was thinking of ways to occupy her during the weekends when I remembered that I had promised her to bake cupcakes. Following the recipe from one of our Dora Magazines, I went to the nearby supermarket and got the ingredients.

Mixing the butter and sugar in the mixing bowl
She needed a little help with this so I jumped in to help mix it more evenly
Sieving the flour

This girl got so impatient with sieving the flour, she poured about 30% of it into the bowl without sieving it! *gasp* 

Next we added Milo powder (replaced cacao powder) and vanilla essence and stirred them all evenly together.

All ready to put in our Philips Air-fryer to bake!
The girl with her finished product!
(Note: Frosting was supposed to top the cupcake together with the strawberries but I omitted it. Too sweet.)

The cupcakes were a little hard (I think due to the flour that was not sieved properly!) and we may have over-baked it a little. Even though no one wanted to eat them (including the girl!), I ate most of them because 1) I'm her Mummy, showing support is part of my job; and 2) Some tasted not too bad actually (probably those with properly sieved flour..).

We're thinking of doing mini cakes next.. wish us luck! =)
