Children took over my kitchen

Youngest and her friend decided to bake cookies for a friend's birthday. Dough, food coloring and frosting were all purchased independent of any adult intervention. Deciding to let them run with it, I advised against getting food coloring anywhere other than in the frosting, and reminded them that the oven is hot. Then I retreated to the porch, where I could hear what was going on, but wouldn't have to look at it.

Ah, the innocence of children. Well, maybe not, because I distinctly heard "nasty frosting spooge", and, while they were trying to force frosting from a syringe (?!) - "Push, Vanessa, push!", followed by "I feel like I just gave birth."

The fruits of their labor?

a mudkip (apparently a Pokemon thing):

a BIG cookie, aka "Cookie of Epic Proportions":

Put them together, and you get:

Umm...aren't kids great?

Cute! I have no idea what a mudkip is but still cute. I didn't think the monster cookie was that big until you had the mudkip for comparison. :)

Hi WC - I don't know what a mudkip is either, all I can think of is Muddy the Mudskipper from Ren & Stimpy. Big Cookie was probably about 10-12" in diameter. :-)

Hi Krizia - They're 13 going on 30, with occasional reversions to 3 :-)

Mudkips eh? haha, definitely looks like it'd have been delicious.

Hi Matthias -
I was afraid to try it because I was concerned that all the food coloring would do something bad to my insides :)
