Last summer we made this "Kid Wash". It was a blast! I thought I would show it to everyone now so you have time to collect what you need to make this,that took us the most time.Putting the whole thing together was just a few hours.The bad thing is we have to remake one this year.We did not have any where to store it so it sat in the weather and broke.If anyone has ideas on making it so it can be taken apart,please let us know!

Something Fun

This was a fun cake one of my kids wanted for their birthday. It is called a Bunny Butt cake. You guessed it their birthday was near Easter! If I was to do it again I would do a few things differently. I would make a much bigger cupcake for the tail; maybe even use a small dish instead of a cupcake pan. The recipe calls for a large marshmallows for the heels of the bunny, I would say if you can find the jumbo ones (Wal-Mart) use them, it will show better. And the last thing that I would change, I would not have tried to make our bunny so pink (we dyed the coconut) we should have followed the directions. Live and learn! FYI we used fruit roll ups for the feet and carrots.



Over all this was a fun project and it was yummy too!
