Capturing the Sprinkles

My kids love to bake. And cook. And make a mess in the kitchen. And pretend to bake, cook, and make a real mess in the pretend kitchen.

So last weekend, when we were baking chocolate cake and cupcakes just for the heck of it (because that's how I like to spend my rainy days at home), we got to my least favorite part of baking: the "decorating". I had already frosted everything and was just hoping the kids forgot about the stockpile of sprinkles we have in the pantry. They had not forgotten. By this point I had already put everything away into tupperwares. Time for an epiphany: decorate while IN the tupperware. This meant that their strategy of just dumping sprinkles on top would be OK. All stray sprinkles were contained by the tupperware, not a single one to be found on the counter. One point for me.
