our own junior masterchef

I had to share these here because I mentioned it in my last post and the kids (mine and my brothers) did such an amazing job ma sha Allah! They're ages range from 2 to 12. The 2, 4 and 5 year olds were in a group and had help of course in making the Iced Heaven, the yummy ice cream cake on left. 

The other children chose their own dishes and flavours and just stunned us. My 9 year old son made the Triple Threat Pizzas (3 different and interesting toppings) and my 12 year old daughter made The Shrimp Escape (top left), a delicious shrimp pie! 

My 6 year old nephew made the Meat Vs. Fish lasagne (left). He named it himself! My 10 year old daughter made the Cracked Chocolate Cake (with butterscotch pieces in it!) and my 7 year old niece made the Kamikaze Wings with Sushi (scrumptious, spicy chicken wings in a peanut sauce).  

A lot of work went in to organizing it, getting the shopping done and coordinating 8 kids in a kitchen. My brother and his wife, with some help from my youngest brother, did a great job with it. I know the kids loved it and I think activities like this are such a confidence boost too. We didn't score the dishes. We had to guess who made what! 

Have you tried anything like this with a bunch of kids before?
