Kate picked cake decorating. I didn't happen to take a picture of the first cake we worked on together, but I did get the next two!
We went to visit my parents for Father's Day. Since we hadn't seen my mom on Mother's Day we made a combined cake. On half I drew the outline of a vase and placed roses (one of the skills one would learn later in cake decorating). On the other side I outlined a tie.
I think it turned out quite well!
The next week I mentioned a gal from our small group at church was having a birthday. After confirming we would see her that evening, Kate set to work on a cake for her.
I helped mix up the icing for her and gave advice. I helped squeeze the bag as she lettered "Happy", but by the time we got to "Birthday" her hand was tired of the constant steady squeezing required, so I helped more on that word. I did very little else, aside from the bottom on the sides with the handles--a tight place to work.

I can't wait to see how Kate's skills blossom as she grows in strength and dexterity and with practice. I sure wasn't decorating cakes at her age!
