Can we submit a cake that we made a little while ago that fits a book? 'Cuz I got two that were inspired by books, one of them being an actual book.

Oh man, I've been waiting for this! I'll have to think about it but I'm sure there's SOMETHING I can come up with- though I have a feeling it's not going to be anything great- I'm not a cake decorator & you remember mine from last time- not really decorated :)

Debbie / Cranberry Fries said...
