These are all wonderful! Such a timely post as I just blogged about a party for my son where I attempted to make the cake. It was a bit of an embarrassment, to say the least.

*Maybe* after seeing this, I’ll try again.

This is cool, but I can’t imagine that the chow mein noodles in the lion one would make the cake taste very good.
