You can't make much of a cake if your small child does this either.
Ever tried cleaning eggs off a floor before? The yolks are alright but those slippery whites don't stick to the cloth, they won't be gathered up in fingers, they just flow through or around whatever you use to sop them up.
Meanwhile small child, obeying the command to "just stay AWAY whilst I clear it up" decides to help herself to a drink instead, using a cup given to me by Goldie's grandmother.
Anyone for eggless sponge cake served on a plastic plate? There are times when removing her mobility is really really tempting!
