To make an extra special breakfast treat, without much effort, I tried these heart-shaped cinnamon rolls. You can do the same with canned rolls or homemade. My family was delighted.
Our family is often on the look-out for fun food ideas. We recently made a pound cake for a friend’s birthday. But how to dress it up? After all, you can really frost a pound cake. Here is the result: a fitting cat for one of our favorite cat lovers!
Eddi made the front and back images of the head and secured them to a skewer, cut for the proper length. She repeated this to have a tail coming up from the opposite end of the cake. FUN!

Our family just celebrated a birthday, and Eddi wanted to try her hand at decorating the cake. 🙂
Using some (freshly washed!) plastic animals and lots of white frosting, she created a fun winter scene! There’s a bunny in an igloo, and penguins playing on a “hill”. She made animal tracks and piles of snowballs. She even covered the penguins with bits of snow. Too cute!
When Drama Princess was ten, she started to show interest in cake decorating. She wanted to thoroughly explore it. A friend kindly came and gave her a lengthy lesson in our living room. At the age of eleven, she created this fun cake for a friend’s sixth birthday. It was her idea and she did it all herself!
It was almost too cute to eat.
In our recent study of rocks, we learned about the different types, layers and so forth. We decided to try this recipe to illustrate that. It had layers, including cookie, nuts, caramel and chocolate. Can’t go wrong, right? Eh-hem.
The finished product was nearly impossible to cut, chewy enough to pull teeth, with way too little chocolate! So, definitely not a recipe we’ll repeat, but we sure had fun!
What to do if you can’t eat raisins and love ants on a log? Why, FIRE ANTS on a log, of course!
