Mommy Bloggers Philippines and The Maya Kitchen Mommy and Kid CupcakeBaking Workshop : Baking and Bonding with my Little Baker

"Nanay, let's watch TASTY videos, please."

If he doesn't want to read storybooks before sleeping , he asks me to watch short cooking and baking videos posted on Tasty's Facebook page.

We both enjoy watching the videos and we even save those recipes we think are easy to bake or cook. We also filter the recipes which need kitchen utensils or equipment we don't have in our home.

"Oops, Nanay. We can't bake this. We don't have an electric mixer." These videos do not only satisfy my little chef's culinary curiosity but inspire him to save money so we can buy more kitchen utensils we need to cook those savory dishes.

Our First Classic Banana Cake, Success! 

Our fabulous little baker helped us prepare our first banana cake a few months ago. We followed the recipe from Cooking Light and watched the video on how to bake a classic banana cake shared on Facebook. Rio enjoyed the entire baking process but was extra interested in mixing the ingredients. After our first baking attempt, he wanted to bake cupcakes but I haven't found an easy recipe for beginners like us.



I am happy to be one of the mommies who will have the chance to participate in The Maya Kitchen's Baking Workshop this Saturday. It is extra special because we will finally learn how to bake cupcakes! Our friends from The Maya Kitchen will teach us how to bake and decorate strawberries and cream and peanut butter and chocolate chip cupcakes! Yummy!

If you still wish to be part of The Maya Kitchen‘s long-standing tradition of hosting summer baking classes for children and young adults.  The Maya Kitchen extends its baking classes until June 2016 for kids and teens.
