My daughters and I were thrilled with American Girl’s baking theme this year. We love to cook and bake together.
When Williams-Sonoma announced that they would be joining up with American Girl to offer a baking class my daughters flipped out! Unfortunately, the closest Williams-Sonoma is 2½ hours away. Plus, we were unavailable on the date the class was being held. Bummer! But, I had an idea!
During the class, WS was going to teach how to make Madeleine Cookies. So, I purchased online a Madeleine Cookie Pan (and one of Grace’s spatulas) from WS and decided to surprise my daughters with a baking class of their very own.
We measured and stirred and poured! We had a blast! The cookies couldn’t bake fast enough!
While the cookies baked, we played! I set a doll scene up to match our own.
I found a fabulous online shop that made doll sized clay Madeleine cookies! The shop is Dolly’s Dining Room, http://www.dollysdiningroom.com/. Karalee, the owner, did an amazing job creating these cookies. I asked for a custom Madeleine pan and she was able to create one that matched perfectly to the real pan I ordered from Williams-Sonoma. The doll cookies were so realistic that my daughters thought they were real cookies. The Dolly’s Dining Room food items are well scaled and well priced. I look forward to purchasing from them again.
The Madeleine cookies turned out great! We sprinkled them with a little powdered sugar. Just yummy! They were devoured in minutes. I think my daughters liked them more because they made them themselves. I don’t know about you, but I think the doll cookie looks exactly like the real thing!
