Baking…a fun activity with a built in reward! Although I am not an expert cook I just LOVE to bake! My mom always created ‘special time’ for the two of us by inviting me into the kitchen when she was cooking; and although I didn’t pick up on her cooking skills, I thankfully did pick up on her baking skills. These were great bonding moments for us – mom would dress me up in my own little apron, and gave me the important job of letting me read from the cookbook and pour in the ingredients that she had carefully measured out:
Mom: “a teaspoon of salt”
Little Kristin: “like this mommy?”
Mom: “yes – very good!”
I think many people share similar memories in the kitchen with their mom. Robyn, our Assistant Credit Manager here at le top, has a beautiful daughter – Kira. (Kira has been a “le top baby” for a very, very long time! The announcement of Kira’s upcoming birth came very soon after Robyn began working with us ten years ago! She modeled clothes in our ads from the time she was a baby until she outgrew our sizes!) Robyn and Kira were baking cupcakes (and building memories together) in the kitchen, and as usual Kira was “Chief Decorator.” Robyn left the kitchen for a few moments and came back to find that Kira had made a present for her – a custom cupcake proudly exhibiting mommy’s company logo “le•top!” Robyn was in awe at the quality and accuracy of the logo…she just had to take a picture to share with us! We knew we had to pass on this work of art to our loyal bloggers, so…TAT DAA! We present Kira’s le•top cupcake masterpiece.
