I'm so proud of him. He did it all on his own with no help from me. Sure it was a box mix but this is a big accomplishment for him since he struggles a little with reading. Besides how many 16yr old boys can bake a cake. Shoot my own hubby can't even do that.
Brendan loves to cook and even makes supper for the the guys when I am at work. It is teaching him to be independent and I know he wont starve when he is older and out on his own.
BTW the cake is a red velvet cake with vanilla icing. And it taste pretty darn good.
