There are many different kinds of cake, but they all start with basic ingredients. Flour, sweetener, fat, eggs, generally a liquid, leavening agents, and flavoring are some of the ingredients. Easy, one-bowl cakes are usually made with oil and are quick to make. Butter cakes are made with butter or shortening and a sweetener creamed together. They take a little more time to make, but are worth the extra effort. Chiffon cakes, or sponge cakes are extra light and fluffy and are made with a greater proportion of eggs. Cakes can be served plain, or filled and frosted. The filling also may be different from the frosting for an added special touch. There are also some other variations of cake, such as muffins, cupcakes, cheesecakes, and coffee cake.

My kids have loved being a part of keepers. When I get stuck for an idea/project to do as a family, I pull out our keepers book for us to work on a badge. So far we enjoyed the birds badge. We made a bird house and have had fun caring for the birds this winter.
