Keslee-the little homemaker

My sister, Chastanie, got Keslee the cupcake maker for Christmas. Keslee had seen it in the store and fell in love with it. It was one of those presents that as soon as it was opened and Keslee realized what she got, she dropped everything and ran to Chas to give her a big thank you hug. She was so excited! It brought back easy-bake- oven memories for me so about a week after Christmas we had to try it out. It came with mix and frosting for 4 cupcakes, a little mixing bowl, and a "pan" to cook the cupcake in the microwave.

Each cupcake is mixed separately in the little bowl by just adding a little water. The mixture is then poured into a cupcake wrapper and put in the "pan" to cook.
This pan is put into the microwave for about 45 seconds. After it cools for a few minutes, the icing is mixed and put into the icing tube.

As you pull the handle down to squirt the icing, the cupcake spins around. Theoretically this is supposed to produce a little ice-cream type swirly frosting top on each cupcake making perfect beautiful cupcakes just ready for sprinkles.
We were not able to achieve that perfection!?! Our frosting kinda flopped out all in one plop and ran down the sides of the cupcakes. The kids still enjoyed the whole process. After eating a microwaved cupcake-I think I will pass the next time!

Thank you sooo much for saying that. I often wonder if we are getting anywhere near where our goals are in regards to how I hope the kids will be 15 years from now. It always helps to hear encouraging words from people I love!!!
