The most often-remembered times from my childhood are the days when we covered the tables, chairs, counters, and every other kitchen surface with Sugar Cookies. I loved how my dear Mother let us take over (and possibly destroy) her kitchen-- just one day a year--- to make those buttery-sweet cookies that smelled marvelous.
Here at Blue Willow Cottage, we take two Saturdays in December to re-create those precious memories and make some new ones. "B" has his own Chef's Cap and Apron, and we make a fantastic MESS, making delicious goodies, & all the while, hoping these special moments will stick in B's memory like the one's of my colorful childhood.
I love the rich red color of this Red Velvet Cake Recipe, passed down from my Grandmother.
This year our first Saturday was dedicated to making 10 dozen Red Velvet Cupcakes for our Doctors, Dentist, Pediatrician, and the Mailman. We make large trays and decorate the Cupcakes with Red and Green Sprinkles... they are Dazzling!
Our Resident Chef helps in the kitchen.
I love that he will be comfortable cooking for his wife and family one day, because he is already at home in the kitchen at age 10!
Ready for Delivery on Monday!
