    great way to spend an afternoon with the kids. The cakes was good. Would do it again.

    My son has friends whose moms decorate beautiful cakes with fondant. They do a fabulous job, but it's not my thing. This cake was easy to make and looked great, even for an amateur like me. Would highly recommend!

    Loved the template - it worked out great! Just changed up some of the ingredients (like the Dream Whip). A huge hit with our daughter.
