DH says it looks good but what do you think?

Gingerbear Sun 04-Jun-06 19:39:55

that looks great - also looks like you have the same cake book as me

I made a lion for DS2 last year but just before the party sent my friend a frantic text to say that it looked like a brown sun...
When she arrived her DS rushed in, saw the cake and said "Oh wow - a lion cake" and she said she hadn't primed him - what a great kid

Gingerbear - a mermaid would be quite easy, a small fish shaped cake with a barbie stuck in it!
