Mommy and I visited with Saucy and Loopy and we taught them how to make polymer clay cupcakes. Loopy wanted to make earrings for her school friends who have volunteered to help with the cupcake sale, so Mommy and I offered to help, of course.
Now, to prove that I am indeed the smartest baby alive, I will show all of you how to make cupcakes out of polymer clay (isn't that a huge word for an 11-month old?... told you I was a genius). Presenting: baby tutorial!
Well Mommy and Aunt Saucy didn't let me use the knife at all! How will I ever practice my mad cutting skills and become a surgeon like my Daddy if I can't cut the polymer clay? Boo!
Okay, they didn't let me do this either because I would surely have popped them into my mouth, so instead Mommy let me sit and eat strawberries, cheerios and barley soup for this part.
Again, no knife! I got crackers.
For this part I demonstrated my mad banging skills and then I crawled under the table to play with Saucy's legs and her new blue pedicure. I'm a leg man, for sure!
Mommy does this part soooo much better than Aunt Saucy! Mommy said "don't make it too high or it might look like soft-serve ice cream" and she was right. Mmmmm I would lurrve some ice cream right now. Take me for ice cream, Pa!
Then you bake these tiny cupcakes in the oven like the package tells you to... but remember, take them out of the double oven when they are done because my silly Mommy forgot to take them out and then she went to do some real baking... it was a disaster! We told Saucy all about it and she and Loopy laughed at us. The nerve!
Here's Loopy with the fancy cinnamon buns she made today. She looks pretty proud of herself and I just wish I could eat more solids. They look delicious!
Hey, there's Duke! I like Duke. Duke must think I am a cinnamon roll too because Uncle Veto holds me up high like that so Duke can't lick at me, either.
Someday I am going to visit Aunt Saucy and Loopy and they are going to sprinkle me with cinnamon and sugar and let Duke lick me clean! That would be fun!
While Loopy was making cinnamon rolls, Aunt Saucy made a batch of sticky rolls with almonds and cherries. Mommy doesn't have to feed me this much sugar because I'm sweet enough already!
I hope you enjoyed this baby-powered tutorial! I have to get back to my pot banging, my camera hamming and my power napping.
