This is my second failed attempt at making tamales. These are Juan's hands trying to be helpful. The masa is supposed to be applied and spread with a spoon. I was busy making the pork filling and I glanced over to look at what he was doing. His face was so serious trying to be helpful, and I couldn't correct him. This was way cute, I had to take a photo. After five of these wonderful pieces of art, I then showed him how to apply it with a spoon, and he replied "but it is also sticking this way." So what can you do? I just left them this way. We had lots of fun!
