A few years ago, when I was on maternity leave with the Mini Cupcake. We would attend a program called Junior Chef. The Cupcake loved Junior Chef. It was her favorite day. They made apple crescent rolls, and some other things. We only really remember the apple rolls, because Cupcake still asks to make them.
Fast forward two and a half years and the Cupcake still loves everything about baking and cooking. Williams-Sonoma hosts kids cooking sessions every month. So far the cupcake has attended an American Girl Madeline cookie class, and a Cake Pop class. This month they held at Mommy and Me American Girl Cookbook club class. As soon as I saw it, I knew we had to attend.
The menus was simple, Cheesy Garlic Bread, Spaghetti and Meatballs, and for dessert – a S’mores Cupcakes!
This is the second Cookbook club event I have attended at Williams-Sonoma. The first featured Chrissy Teigan’s Cravings cookbook. A WS Cookbook club presentation includes a culinary demonstration from one of their culinary specialists, your own copy of the cookbook and a generous tasting of all the recipes prepared. After the American Girl cookbook club, I signed up for next months Cookbook Club and will be taking my mom as a Mother’s Day gift.
While this cookbook club was great for the value, meal and cookbook, the Cupcake stated she wished she got to help make the food rather than just sit and watch. She then promptly asked if she could sign up for the next Junior Chef class.
The cupcake is growing fast, she’ll be six in two months, before she fell asleep I asked her what the best part of the day was, she said, “spending time with you at the cooking class.” Yes, we will be doing more cooking classes, just to spend time with each other, because that was my favourite part too.
