I was in Iowa last week visiting family, and had the delightful experience of making and decorating sugar cookies with my great niece Starr.
I thought I would share a few tips for baking with children.
The most important thing to remember is that the experience is FAR MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE OUTCOME.
Involve the child in selecting the colors to tint the icing and the shape of the cutters. Let them feel completely involved with the creative process.
Show the child how to twist the top of the bag so the icing won't ooze out. You will thank me for this.
Just deal with it.
