Tasha measured 2 cups of baking flour, squinting her eyes as she levelled off the excess. Satisfied, her hands reached for the ingredients, laid out in ramekins and bowls right beside her. Mise-en-place, she calls it. She mixed the ingredients one by one, careful not to spill it. As the oven closes with a satisfying thud, Ms. Violet claps and says, “Well done!”

We have Ms. Violet Khoo from Genius R Us talking about how teaching your child to bake could help them learn many important aspects of life.

1. Basic arithmetic
