This is not a cooking blog...

But who would be able to resist sharing such cuteness? For his third birthday our son got some cooking utensils and silicon cake tins from his Aunty Relle and her In-Laws. I think he looks super gorgeous in his apron and hat!

And "Granny's little sister Aunty 'ron" (Veron) gave me a baking book that she had bought for herself, but thought might get a bit more use at my house. So today we made old fashioned gingerbread.

Mr 3 loved stirring and pouring and turning off my electric mixer. Turning it on however is a bit scarey ;)

He loved using his spoon and 'spatchla' to stir and scrape.

The recipe made quite a lot, in hindsight I should have halved it. As well as gingerbread men we made 12 gingerbread stars and a gingerbread bear.

I had to guess a bit with the timing as they were all different sizes, after 15 minutes instead of the documented 25 I thought everything looked about right.

Sadly the gingerbread bear fell apart when I was taking him out of his cake tin. So we ate him warm and he was delicious!
