Maya Strawberry Cupcakes with Easy Vanilla Buttercream

Ykaie and I had a magical moment in the kitchen baking this easy-to-do, kid-friendly Strawberry Cupcakes with Easy Vanilla Buttercream…

Maya Strawberry Cupcakes with Easy Vanilla Buttercream

I love baking and I’m so glad that Ykaie loves it too. As a matter of fact, baking is one of our favorite bonding activity. I love baking with Ykaie because she can learn a lot of things from it. I think it’s where she learned basic skills like following instructions with the recipe. There are times when I get swamped with work and my day gets too tiring and busy but I make sure I find the time to bake with Ykaie. It’s one way I can destress and at the same time be closer with my daughter.  Baking together is a lot of fun, specially if you like to eat — like us!

When it comes to baking ingredients such as all purpose flour and cake flour,we’ve always trusted Maya. Our baking activity for today is made magical by the new Maya Pancake & Baking Mix which makes this recipe so easy to do. Ykaie even got excited because her favorite Disney character Princess Aurora (Sleeping Beauty) is in one of the boxes.

Aside from being easy to do, what I love about this recipe is that it is kid-friendly and the kid-friendly tasks are labeled with “K”.
