10 Tips To Make Baking More Fun For You
Some people naturally love baking, and it comes easy to them but sometimes baking alone or with family can be boring. When you want to make it fun for everybody, you will have to come up with interesting ways of making it so.
Below are a few baking tips that you can use to make it a fun activity;
Use kid-friendly tools
This is one thing you will want to consider especially with kids around.
You want to take all precautionary measures because your baking session is not going to be all fun and games if someone gets hurt.
Get ready for the mess
This also applies any time you are baking with your children. Kids are naturally messy and it is obvious that there will be a great deal of “mess”.
So, if you want to have the most fun be ready to get messy or else you will spend the whole session trying to tidy up or controlling the kids to avoid a messy situation.
Come up with fun titles
Assign duties to every kid and let every team or individual have a unique and fun name.
For instance, you can have a team responsible for the dry ingredients and another one responsible for the wet ingredients.
Also, you can have a list of baking jokes to make the experience more fun.
Make it a personal affair
Baking is supposed to be fun, and this fun can be elevated by making it a bit personal.
Instead of having common biscuit shapes, for instance, you can let the kids come up with their own unique shapes.
Find recipes you haven’t used before
This could be a fun way to learn a new recipe. Instead of baking what you already know, Google new recipes or ask friends and family to give you some then use those to bake something you haven’t before.
You can also look out for the best and worst foods out there.
Go for simple recipes
You have found new recipes, but all the same, you want to choose the easiest or you will spend a lot of time baking and probably not get the kind of results you want. Find the easier recipes and it is going to be a fun activity for you and your kids.
Get all your ingredients and supplies ready
You don’t want to keep on looking for the supplies or any ingredients you will want to use. So, check your recipe first then get out all you will need before you actually start baking. This will also in a way reduce any unwanted accidents.
Let the kids create their own recipe
This does not necessarily mean letting the kids create new recipes from scratch as that can be disastrous. You can let them do simple things like decorations on their own or even let them choose flavors.
Put the ingredients out of reach from toddlers
You want to keep all ingredients out of reach if you have a toddler. The last thing you want is to have your little one swallowing anything harmful.
Make tasting a big deal
This is the best part about baking. You have created new recipes and had a great time baking, so make the last part a big deal before digging in!
