Strawberries and Cream Cupcakes by Maya Kitchen

Baking is a fun way to spend valuable time and bond with your kids. It’s an opportunity to share time, create delicious desserts and build memories with your little ones.

I’m so glad that the Maya Kitchen has collaborated with Mommy Bloggers Philippines. We got the chance to be part of mom and kid baking workshop at the Maya Kitchen Culinary Arts Center. My son and I had a very fun afternoon last Saturday. We both learned a lot from the workshop and I’m one of the proud moms because Aki made very delicious cupcakes at a young age of 5.

Now, I’ll be sharing with you the Strawberries and Cream Cupcakes that Aki baked. I hope you’ll enjoy baking together with your kids, most especially that bonding time with them is becoming more scarce because some of us are working moms and some are busy with other household tasks.

The Maya Kitchen & Mommy Bloggers Philippines Baking Workshop with our Kids!

I’m so excited for tomorrows event! It’s the collaboration of Maya Kitchen and Mommy Bloggers Philippines in a BAKING WORKSHOP!

 

Why I am so much excited is that I will be with my son, Aki, at the event. I hope I am remembering it right because I think this is my son’s second event with MBP. I hope I am having a good memory. Haha! Surely this will be a great one since it’s a unique bonding between me and Aki after my loooooong week at the office.

 

I’m looking forward to this event not only because I am with my son but because I know he will learn a lot, too, most especially that he’ll start schooling this coming June. So, hopefully, he’ll also be able to use what he’ll learn in the workshop in the near future.

 

Don’t worry, I’ll share with you our experience. So, keep in touch! 🙂

 

Poster for Maya

 

Cooking with kids is fun and rewarding whether you bake dessert, whip up a fun snack, or come up with something mouthwatering for dinner together. Most young children love to measure, mix, pour and decorate.

With this is mind Mommy Bloggers Philippines (MBP) and The Maya Kitchen collaborated to bring a fun and exciting Baking Workshop on May 28th, 2016. Where 12 beautiful mommies of MBP can bring 1 kid (ages 5-12) to learn how to bake and decorate Strawberries & Cream and Peanut Butter & Choco Chip cupcakes. It’s going to be a fun and exciting bonding experience for mommies and their kids!
