Hey Parker, do you want to make a cake with me? We have to take pictures and put them on the internet. It's called a Banana Split Chiffon Cake.'
'Aunty Catherine, we're going to make a cake an' take pictures. Cos I want to.'
'But I want to put more in.'
'Well that's all we need for the recipe.'
'But I want to put more.'
'You can eat that bit.'
''I don't want to.'
'I'm going to mix it with my hands, Aunty Catherine.'
'Good thing you washed your hands.'
'How's the mixing going?'
'Finished mixing yet?'
'No. Not yet'
'Okay, just a drop more vanilla. Not too mu...! Oh, well, that should be okay.'
'Parker? Parker? Parker...?
'Yes, I had a bit and it was a bit nice but then it was a bit yucky. Cos it was too much vanilla.'
Happy birthday to a gorgeous four year old (cos I'm a big boy now). Next week it's unfortunately back to just me baking Fudgy Pudgy Brownie Tart.
