With only a few days left with her daughter before the she spends the Christmas holiday with dad, Katie Holmes made sure to give Suri a sweet treat.
The Batman star showed her ex Tom Cruise what he's missing as she and her daughter Suri put their cooking skills on display at Georgetown Cupcake in New York City on Monday.
Katie appeared to have a natural talent in the kitchen, smiling and laughing as she attended the birthday party for one of Suri's friends.
Dressed warmly for the chilly Manhattan weather, the mother-daughter-duo arrived at the party in bundled up in matching blue puffy coats.
Once inside, the pair both showed off bright pink outfits that matched their party aprons.
The precocious six-year-old needed a bit more help in the kitchen than her famous mum and received lessons throughout the event.
The store owners of Georgetown Cupcake were clearly delighted with their VIP guests and later tweeted: 'So much fun having Katie, Suri & friends for cupcake decorating at @GTownCupcake Soho today!!'
The 33-year-old actress is spending as much time as she can with her daughter, who will be celebrating the Christmas holiday with her father Tom and older siblings Connor and Isabella at the actor's Los Angeles home.
The Sun reported Monday that Katie will still be showering her daughter with gifts, which include a £15,000 Victorian playhouse, a £6,000 miniature Mercedes Benz, an iPad mini and some new additions to her wardrobe, with a Chloe fur coat and a Ralph Lauren dress reportedly on the list.
The Dawson's Creek star is currently spending her time in New York as she stars in the Broadway comedy Dead Accounts, which is scheduled to run through the end of February.
And while Katie seems thrilled about her performance, last month's opening show received mixed reviews from critics.
The New York Times commented: 'Dead Accounts is, I think, meant to be about the inflation of the superficial in a materialistic society, and the attendant, unsatisfied craving for belief. ... But the play never follows through convincingly on any of its ideas.'
And the LA Times added: 'Holmes is charming, natural and, yes, about as fresh-faced as a moisturizer model. But there's only so much that can be done with a Rebeck play that has more topical urgency (greed, ethics and banking funny business) than dramatic finesse.'
