Baking with Lizelle – Rainbow Cupcakes

Hi Everyone,

The Kids can cook: fun, tasty recipes for budding chefs cookbook by Jernnine Pang is a wonderful recipe book for children! When you go through the recipes, it is really hard to select a specific one. There are easy-to-follow instructions, and beautiful photographs that illustrate the end product. All the recipes can me made by children, with a little help from mum or dad. Each recipe includes the necessary tools for the job, these guidelines help children to identify everyday kitchen utensils, as well as their use. I selected the Rainbow Cupcakes because I absolutely love cupcakes, and I know children love them too.

Happy baking,
Lizelle 🙂
