After putting this out to the lovely ladies on the childminding forum (see websites on the sidebar) there are some more things to add:
- Miffy suggested comparing the volumes of weighed items as they will be different, e.g 4oz butter will look different to 4oz flour etc! (PSRN)
- Christine suggested including decorating cakes and biscuits in CD and reading the recipe (CLL), listening for the timer, the smell of the cooking, comparing textures of the ingredients and taste testing (yeah!) (KUW).
Thanks everyone!!! Happy Baking!
