Nanny Mook & Lulu’s Easter Afternoon Tea

‘Ooh, I didn’t expect you to go to all this trouble!” said Nanny M&L, when she arrived for her Easter afternoon tea, but there is something special about showing how much someone is appreciated with homemade gifts.

Lulu helped make the cakes, and as she proudly presented her sticky gingerbread to Nanny (for once heeding the plea not to bound in), it was lovely to see that she also understood the joy of taking the time to make something yourself.

I love that my kids are now old enough to help in the kitchen. There have been several occasions where I’ve lost Mook and Lulu’s help in the kitchen once the cake mixture has been made, as they disappear off, spoons in hand, to ‘clean’ the mixing bowl.  Lulu and I enjoyed making our Easter cakes together, but I would advise using a sprinkling of patience, and a serious adjustment to your schedule – little hands and lots of questions do make the process last a little longer than usual!

We made Nanny….
