Recently 4 people from our church celebrated birthdays so I finally had a go at making a rainbow cake. I did use a vanilla cake mix and just added the colours. I made the lemon butter cream icing from scratch. The white outside makes the bright inside all the more exciting for people to cut into.
The kids have taken a night each for cooking. Katya has taken on the 'pasta' chef role and this is the second time she has made our pasta from scratch. Love that we can use eggs from our hens (Dotti, Daisy & Firey) and I like that we can make it with wholemeal flour or stoneground flour to make it a little more natural than store bough stuff. As well as the pasta the kids have made meatballs, spag bol, baked potatoes and vegetable slice. Alicia is doing food technology at the Hilton through school at the moment and is loving what she learned. She made a pizza last week - blue cheese, purple onions and smoked chicken - the chef was surprised at her choices. She's loved blue cheese since she was just over 1!
