  • That's not a lot of egg

  • Wait, another tiny egg...

  • We're doing it softly, mix it in wholly

  • I think there's a lot of pressure on her to make the best egg. She gets nervous

  • Then put it again

  • When you eat it, it goes *makes sounds* in your mouth

  • I can't wait to eat it

  • Wow!

  • Does egg usually have maple syrup in it? As an ingredient?

  • No, we use sugar, but we don't have it so we used maple syrup

  • ...to make it yummy
