all finished! not my best cake work, but they're still cute! can i just say that when something sounds too easy, it probably isn't? those silly marshmallows were so hard to frost! the buttercream didn't want to stick to them, and i had to hold them in my fingers to get it on all of it. which was a mess. i didn't let my cakes freeze long enough, because i wanted to get started, and i regretted it the entire time. so many crumbs in the frosting. i didn't spend a lot of time smoothing my frosting either, i was just ready to be done with them. i'm a little leery now about doing the puppy cucpakes. they have marshmallow snouts and ears. but that frosting is put on with a piping bag, so maybe it will work out. we'll see. the great thing about a 4 year old is that you can throw sprinkles on it and they'll be happy.
