A Day Home Alone With Esara and Caldirwen

Well, today dad has another doctor appointment and since he can't drive mom took him. Narthea went to work, so that left Esara, Caldirwen and I home alone. First, we did our chores:

Mine? Vacuuming the school room, living room and hallway.

Caldirwen had to clean the sliding glass door and Esara dusted the furniture in the living room and the school room.

Then, we were bored and I decided to do my fav thing: baking! :D We decided to bake a chocolate cake. First, we preheated the oven to 350.

After preheating the oven, we added the dry ingredients, then the wet. Then, we mixed it with the electric mixer:

After that, the oven was ready to go so we poured the cake batter in the pan and stuck it in the oven:

After that we scraped the bowl clean:

Then, while we were waiting for the cake to bake we decided to play a card game called Spades (my personal fav):
Then, we heard the sound we had all been waiting for... the timer:
The cake looks so delicious!

While we waited for the cake to cool, we made the icing consisting of powdered sugar, vanilla, unsweetened cocoa, milk, and melted butter. This was the result:

After we played a few more rounds of Spades, the cake was cool enough to ice:

And of course, the chef's always get to scrape the remaining icing from the bowl:

Well, we had a very fun day! Laundry, chores and a delicious cake... what a day! :)

Awesome! All I know how to bake is brownies. Do you like nuts in your goodies or not? I can't stand them!

Eldarwen Failariel said...

I don't like brownies. And no, I don't like nuts in my goodies. :) I'm good at baking brownies, I just don't like them. idk why... :/

I'll bake anything, even if I don't like it :) I LOVE licking the bowl, and Leia is always reminding me that I'll be sick if I don't stop...

Eldarwen Failariel said...

That looks so delish! I wanted to see the final cake though :P

Hehe. Well, I took a few pictures of the whole cake, but my flash kept reflecting off the pan and making the picture almost white. Then, when I turned the flash off, it was too fuzzy and dim. We messed with the lighting and everything. We moved the cake here and there (poor thing), but I couldn't get a good enough picture. Sorry. Those last three pictures (before the one of the spoon) are of the icing sitting on the cake, just not the whole cake. :)
