Itadaki masu ~ Amelia Bedelia's Sheet Cake

During our weekly Library visit the girls picked out tons of books and one of them had a tasty surprise!  Amelia Bedelia is one of Squirt's favorite series and this latest one is a hit with all the girls.  Especially since it has a cake recipe in the back. 

 Strange that we have this book, last year we lucked up and checked out a book close to Pumpkin's birthday that had a cupcake recipe in it and that is what we did for her birthday treat.  So she was excited to be able to have a new book with a new recipe to try on her day :) 

 This is a GREAT recipe.... sift / pour all ingredients into your baking pan mix and bake!  So Easy and fun for the little ones...  how do you like my brand new mixer?!? ;)


My cake decorating skills are a bit lacking but the girls loved the cake!

Pumpkin loved the book and I am sure your little ones will have lots of giggles while reading the silly adventure of Amelia Bedelia.  Give the cake a go to I know that we will be making this more in the future on those days when you just need a piece of cake ;)
