Tilly has wanted a red velvet cake for a while, so when we were sent the red velvet cake mix to try out she was so over the moon.
Tilly decided to do the baking with her little friend and they had quite a fun afternoon baking! Tilly and her friend took turn in the mixing and with a few simple instructions they followed the recipe easily. This is such an easy recipe and is perfect for a beginner in baking.
All you need to add is vegetable oil, water and eggs. So here is how they made their wonderful red velvet cake with vanilla icing.
So the girls cracked the eggs, mixed it in with the cooking oil, the water and the cake mix. Making sure all the lumps were gone and the mixture was smooth. Next they poured their mixture into some rectangle cake tins that we had greased to stop the cake sticking to the side.
We used some Betty Crocker vanilla icing with sprinkles for the decoration (we all know kids love sprinkles) and they had great fun making a mess with this! Here is the finished result - not bad for a 5 year old!
