Birthday week continues, with G taking a birthday treat (Super Bars with no nuts) to his preschool "Mom's Morning Out" friends yesterday, and R taking a treat to his classroom this morning (Slacker Chocolate Chip cookies, made into bar cookies and cut into the shape of race cars). If I don't bake again after this weekend for a long, long time, I will be a happy camper.
I still have the grand finale of birthday week baking for their party Saturday. I am making two homemade cakes in the shape of a race car. I was excited to find this recipe for homemade cake mix. In classic Sweet Pea style, I will be tweaking the recipe a bit to see what works best and to make it all natural, so I'll be sure to report back on that end.
I also found natural food coloring:
I've never used natural food dyes, but I am going to give them a whirl...we'll see! Has anyone out there ventured into natural food coloring?
