We Baked

Ruby is one of my favorite people in the world and I enjoy our playdates immensely. Not having a child of my own (yet) I consider it a huge honor to be able to borrow one. It amazing what you can learn about yourself and the world through the eyes of a six-year-old.

For our playdate, we decided to have ourselves a little tea party in order to test out my newly received Easy-Bake Oven. Besides our easy-baked goods, we drank herbal tea and ate peanut butter and jelly sandwiches (note to self: next time cut off the crust).

At the end of our playdate I asked Ruby if she wanted to take the Easy-Bake Oven home. Since I doubt she will be returning it any time soon; I guess I will have to use the real oven for my next tea party.

  1. How cute! I remember having one of those as a little girl…had to be very careful not to burn yourself on the lightbulb back then, lol…it’s probably a lot more safer nowadays!


  2. First, did you just get paid to use an EasyBake Oven and where I can submit a resume for that?

    And second, you need to work on story structure Kelly! It’s considered cruel to leave the audience with a cliff hanger without first assuring them there will be more. Yes, you told us that you were going to frost and eat the cake, but the emotional point that the video was building towards was the enjoyment of the cake. As a director, you left the audience hanging.

    I kid, of course.

  3. Known Human glad you dropped by I love your stuff – (http://www.bradleyrobb.net/) and @knownhuman

    No I didn’t get paid to use the Easy-Bake Oven. If you find out how one can please let me know so I can submit my resume as well :)

    Sorry for leaving the audience hanging – This was my first attempt at working with talent (a.k.a Ruby) and I was a little nervous. Next time Ruby and I get together for a playdate maybe we will draft a script first 😉

    As far as the quality of the food itself – I will say it wasn’t the best cake I have eaten. I also wasn’t expecting it to be since it came from a mix and an oven powered by a light bulb.

  4. I always wondered about how those actually taste. As a child I would probably have resorted to filling it with Play-Doh at some point and that would have been the end of that.

    Ruby did fine, though I have a feeling she’s a total prima donna when the cameras stopped rolling.

    You’ve reminded me that I need to harass my mother about getting me a Flip camera for Christmas or I might just have to start using my Canon for vlogging.
