Top 5 treats to bake with kids this month!

It’s December, it’s nearly the end of the year and kids are out of school! That can only mean one thing – summer baking \o/

Baking is a fun learning activity that all kids can do with the guidance of a parent – and your kids might have some of the best childhood memories to cherish when they get older!

1. Cute Cake Pops!

Cake pops are the ultimate treat for kids! They’re easy to make and look super pretty. Plus, they’re small enough for little bakers to eat! Check out the recipe here

3. Super Moist Devils Food Ice Cream Cake

Another ice cream cake, you ask? It’s summer and we just can’t resist! This beautiful ice cream cake might need to be left in the freezer overnight for best results, but it really is worth the wait (just watch the delight on your kids’ faces as soon as they get to have this treat!)
