Love the cake, I might do this with the kiddos, I'm sure they would LOVE it! Although, I'm not sure I would keep the little ones fingers out of the frosting!

I love that idea!! Maybe I will try that with Andrew. He would love that.

When I post my link to Mr. Linky for some reason it comes up with the one I posted weeks ago. Not sure why it's doing that. But if you click that link it will take you right to my blog.

Happy WBW Cheryl!!
