Making cakes

We have been thinking about birthdays and enjoyed making cakes. We decided that cakes are an essential part in celebrating birthdays!
Using an egg as a weight, we first weighed out and sifted the flour. We had to make sure the balances were balanced and work out what to do if one of them was 'up' or 'down'. We used words like heavy, light, heavier, lighter, balanced, the same. This is part of our maths curriculum in EYFS.

 Next we weighed the sugar.

We weighed the butter then creamed our cake mixture together.

Last of all, we cracked our weight, the egg, and mixed all of our ingredients together.
We put the mixture into cake cases and baked them in the oven. We looked at the changes (this is science in EYFS) and waited for them to cool. We decorated them and took them home to enjoy!
