Let them eat cake (batter).

So whenever I do any sort a baking my kids always want in on the action (mainly because they want to sample it at every stage)!. If I need the cake to look good I generally try and do it without them noticing or while they are at school. But since this one was just for their dad for his birthday I got them involved. It's so much more fun when you can just let them enjoy it and get messy without caring too much about the end result. Am I right? I think they did pretty well too. What do you think?
