After making an assortment of child-friendly, animal-shaped pancakes, Serena Williams and Alexis moved on to the bigger stuff. Cinnamon rolls were on the menu. In fact, little Olympia helped make the dough herself, as Alexis shows her off, handling a big ball of dough in her tiny hands.

“On the other side, there is Mama Williams,” Alexis says as he shows Serena Williams spreading chocolate on the dough. When he asks her what she plans on baking more, she replies, “I’m making a pie.”

Then, Alexis feigns confusion about the pie, and asks her what the crust would be, to which Serena replies, “With a cinnamon roll crust.”

Funnily enough, he even zooms in on their family dog, Dora, and asks her a question. “Dora, what are you thinking,” Alexis says as Dora looks up at him, utterly oblivious.

All of these arrangements were in preparation for the family’s movie night together. They then watched the newly-released movie Sing 2 on their home theatre system. Alexis even tagged the official page for the movie, thanking them for making the experience possible.

There is no doubt that Serena Williams is just as good at baking as she is at acing!
