Anna: I’m so excited about these cupcakes!
Kirstin: I know! You’ve been going on about them for days. Ordering fancy pastes and glitters, debating whether to use the Kitchen Aid or food processor….
Anna: SO excited! I really hope they turn out better than our last few baking recipes from “Kitchen”. I don’t think I can cope if they turn out to be a disappointment. Not after all this anticipation!
Kirstin: Let’s get on with it then. Kitchen Aid it is.
Anna: Can you imagine how difficult it would be to make these without a Kitchen Aid? Or on your own?
Kirstin: They’re not that difficult!
Anna: No, but the paste is very red. And it’s getting everywhere. You have to add it to the batter while still mixing. You couldn’t do that without either 4 hands, or a stand-alone implement doing the mixing for you.
Kirstin: This is the point where you wouldn’t want kids to be helping you. Imagine the mess that could be made with all this red…..
Both: OH NO!!
Anna: What did we do??
Kirstin: Um. I think I pressed the on button instead of the one to drop the beater back into the bowl….
Anna: Kirstin, your cashmere sweater….
Kirstin: Tom! Would you be able to run to the dry cleaners!?
Miles: Mummy, why is there red stuff all over the kitchen?
(Some time later)
Anna: I still have red dye all over my hands.
Kirstin: We look like we’ve murdered someone. Like that man that chopped people up in the States.
Anna: This will be a good look for Zoe’s party tonight then.
Kirstin: Happily we’ve used the food processor for the cream cheese icing. Calm has been restored.
Anna: Oops. I just dropped red glitter all over the counter.
Kirstin: We’re running out of baby wipes.
Miles: Anna, I could smell the red cakes upstairs and they smell delicious! You can have a sticker!
Anna: They don’t look half bad, do they? Happy birthday Zoe!
Kirstin: Happy birthday Zoe!
