Messy play is #Betterwithcake

Let them eat cake!

Dear mummy, one of the first words to tumble out of my mouth at 19 months was “Cake” it’s such a lovely word. It reminds you of birthdays, treats, special occasions and good times. Whenever you want a ‘pick-me-up’ you have a cuppa and a piece of cake. Your waistline hates you for this!

Mr Kipling sent my mummy a selection of his cakes and asked meย to write about what things, for us, during the easter holidays have been better with cake. Cake for us is all about getting together with family, taking a time-out and making activities more fun. Cake is a good reward for good behaviour too ๐Ÿ˜‰ *hint hint mummy*

We wanted to show you how much cake means to us… but we can’t bake ๐Ÿ˜ฆ So no cookery post here! However we love painting and crafting so we’ve decided to create a masterpiece!

We loved Mr Kipling’s clever cake art installation billboardย outsideย Westfield Shopping Centreย and their recent marketing campaign, so we’re creating artwork inspired by their cakes and taking photos of our masterpieces.

Getting ready for our messy play with Mr Kipling’s cakes

I’m colouring in some of our favourite Mr Kipling’s cakes and embellishing them with glitter and sparkle.

Messy play is always better with cake!

Here’s our version of some of our favourite cakes…

Cherry Bakewell’s – My mummy sketched the cake and I helped colour it in with paints and glitter.

I copied the box to get the colours right and added some of my hand prints. My mummy used the leftover cake packaging as handy paint pots that I could dip my paintbrush into. Clever thinking mummy!

French Fancies – These are my mummy’s favourite, so I had to battle to get one to eat! I studied one of the pink French Fancies in order to get my painting just right. Then I demolished it! Hehe…it was very yummy.

Do you love Mr Kipling’s cakes as much as we do?!? As you can see I don’t share them! ๐Ÿ˜‰
