Sophie the toddler is prepping her cakes for the Show

COHERANT sentences are a struggle for toddler Sophie Cherry but she has a firm grasp on making cakes.

The two-year-old will be one of the youngest competitors in the Wallumbilla Show when she and her mother Sharna enter their own patty cakes.

Sharna said her daughter was just one-year-old when she first started taking an interest in cooking.

"She'd hand me the utensils to cook with and things like that," Sharna said.

"She even wanted to crack the eggs open."

Sophie wanted to enter the Drawing section of the Wallumbilla Show last year but was so young they didn't even have an age group for her.

Sharna said her experience in childcare made her more patient with Sophie's cooking adventures.

She said she wanted to encourage her daughter's creativity in any way she could.

"She's starting ballet next week, because she saw the highland dancing but couldn't join because you need to be five," Sharna said.

"I just want to keep up that creativity in her for as long as possible.

"If she wants to cook at any time, we'll just get the equipment out and start cooking."

"I like drawing and painting," Sophie added.

But no matter where she enters her delicious creations, Sophie said there was only one place she preferred her patty cakes.

"I like them in my tummy," she said.
