How to test if the cakes are ready
Push a wooden cocktail stick into the centre of a cake, then pull it out and touch it. If it is sticky, the cake isn’t ready yet because the mixture isn’t properly cooked. So, return the cakes to the oven for 1-2 minutes longer, then test again.
Apart from being fantastic fun, enjoying time in the kitchen with children is sociable, creative, builds their confidence and gives them a great sense of pride and achievement – especially when baking something the rest of the family can’t wait to eat.
