We talked about the importance of measurement when baking, and that each recipe calls for precision (unless you have a show on the Food Network!). We used precise measurement with the recipe, and estimation when it came to filling up our cupcake papers with batter. While they baked away in the oven, we worked on a review.
Now our cupcakes might not be professional level, but they were easy, fun, and pretty yummy!
10 Fat Turkeys by Tony Johnston tells the silly tale of some crazy turkeys while children learn to count backwards. I searched high and low for a Thanksgiving book about measurement and couldn't find one. If you know of one, please leave us a comment!
