I've been wanting to make a tie-dyed cake for awhile now, and I finally have a reason! It's really pretty easy. Whip up some white cake and divide it into a few bowls.
I forgot a step, make sure your wee-one has an acorn squash to play with...
Then I added different colors to each bowl. Turns out you need A LOT for each. Like, 10+ drops.
Now- you just add it to the pan (or, in my case, bowl), alternating colors. Some people swirl. I didn't this time.
Uh-oh, the acorn squash has lost it's appeal. Peek-a-boo!
Next, into the oven! Mine took about an hour. It was the longest hour, I think I was just too excited to see what would happen!
When it was done, it was beautiful! I cut the top so that it would sit flat (and didn't take a pic) and the insides were so vibrant! This is definitely a keeper. Too much fun :)
I also whipped up some baby food. New food adventures include: beets and kiwi. Shortly after this picture was taken, all of these lovely little bits took a turn in the food processor.
Lastly- I discovered a new way to de-seed a cantaloupe! I used my 1/3 cup scoop to quickly and efficiently get 'er done!! Look how lovely perfect...
