A toddler with a serious passion for food has gone viral after a video of him baking cookies with grandma descended into chaos.
Mum Christy shared a clip of her two-year-old son Cade on Facebook captioned ‘Cooking with Cade. Special Guest: Nana’ and it’s since racked up millions upon millions of views on social media.
His cooking method of attempting to eat as many ingredients as possible before they make it to the oven – including raw egg and a stick of butter – have won Cade a huge following online.
In the latest video, Cade and his grandma begin the cookie mix by pouring a large cup of sugar into the mixing bowl – which is the cue for the little chef to start digging in.
Although nana is quick to block his first attempt, Cade simply drops the cup and uses his free hand to grab a handful of sugar and stuff it into his mouth before anyone can stop him.
He then repeats the move to sample a huge mouthful of butter as his grandma desperately tries – and fails – to stop him.
She also teaches him to crack an egg, but the second the yolk lands in the bowl, it’s in Cade’s fist and shoved straight in his mouth.
The rest of the ingredients go the same way but the hungry toddler shows impressive restraint to stop himself gobbling down the completed mixture as it goes on the baking tray.
After a change of clothes and a wash, Cade returns to inspect his impressive creation – and still has plenty of room to tuck into the finished thing.
The clip left many people in stitches, as one replied to say: “There is nothing that boy won’t put in his mouth, and he has the quickest hands. The videos are so hilarious. You can tell what he’s gonna put in his mouth, which is about all of it. Keep ’em coming.”
A second said: “I love this!! I was almost peeing my pants when he ate that egg… he is adorable!”
Another added: “IT’S THE WAY HE WAITS UNTIL IT’S POURED TO AGGRESSIVELY STEAL IT OUT THE BOWLdidkwkdkdkskskskfqkw.”
