The dinosaur is slowly chipping away at his shell (ok or the shell is dissolving). Davey has determined that he is a t-rex.
We pretend to be a little scared!
And then we decided to make cupcakes.
We made the Pioneer Woman’s recipe.
Here is something I should not have done. The recipe calls for baking soda and vinegar (among other things). Well, I could not resist putting the vinegar directly onto the baking soda in the bowl so that I could show Davey the fun bubbly reaction.
I think I deactivated the baking soda? Many of the cupcakes had little sinkholes in the middle. They still tasted good though and actually it was a chance to sneak more icing on there.
Davey decorated them. He went with a combination of star sprinkles and M&Ms.
Then he wanted to eat one (meaning he wanted to lick all the “icin'” off one.)
Then he made a big mess with the icin’ and so he decided he needed to get rid of his icin’ed clothes.
Maybe tomorrow the t-rex will have emerged completely from his shell. Davey will be downstairs first thing in the morning to check.
It might be an altitude thing–maybe cut the baking soda in half. Crazy things happen to baked goods when you’re waaaay up here!
Dinosaur egg still freaking me out! It’s kinda gross!
