Friday Favorite: Easy Bake Ovens

June 28th, 2013

When I was a little, the Easy Bake Oven was one of my favorite toys.  I’m sure that doesn’t come as a surprise since you know I love to cook.
Easy Bake 1
Yesterday, we got out my mom’s Easy Bake and baked up a storm with my two older nieces. It was my sister’s (their mom) birthday, so they wanted to make her a cake.  Happy Birthday WENDY!
Easy Bake 2
My parents had to choke down many an easy bake cake, piled high with frosting. It’s nice that the tradition remains alive. Even my mom’s neighbor received her own individual cake.

Did you have an Easy Bake Oven when you were a kid?

Shop through these links and I get a few cents each time. It's not much, but it allows me to buy a new cookbook or new gardening book every couple months. I appreciate your support!
