Simple baking hacks for busy moms
Mums know all too well the pressure of making sure your little one has everything you can give them. Healthy school lunches and stimulating activities take time and energy to get ready, not to mention events and birthdays to prepare for too. So, in honour of those parents who sometimes need a break, we have put together a list of baking hacks – to take the stress out of being a busy parent. So, you can enjoy these special moments creating fond memories without stress.
These cake pops can rescue you in the instance of a flop or if you feel like trying something different. Sometimes a cake just doesn’t work out and that’s okay – it’s not the end for you. You can use a flopped cake to make these awesome cake pops, and even the most competent of eaters will be none the wiser.
No eggs? No problem
So you’ve had a hectic day getting the ingredients to bake a cake for your little one to take to the bake sale tomorrow. Then you suddenly realise you don’t have any eggs. No stress, this eggless chocolate cake will save the day, and it tastes just as good as any other chocolate cake. It’s an added bonus that it’s totally edible for people who have plant-based diets. Top it with luscious chocolate icing or to keep it vegan opt for a simple glace icing. Done and dusted or should we say done and iced.
When your kids want to get involved in helping you bake, something simple and endlessly entertaining is icing. Set a station with icings in multiple colours and a variety of toppings and let your kids go wild. They will enjoy being involved in the process, and they will love tasting the icing and the finished product even more. Icing is a task that is fairly simple for kids of virtually all ages, although the younger they are, the more help they will need. Why buy icing when you can make your own.
