I made this cake for a birthday and was a big hoit! The instructions are very easy to follow and the cake turned out to be so cute at the end result. I love this cake and can't wait to make this cake again.

I created this cake a few years ago for Easter. I used the star tip to do the white, which is time-consuming, but very effective and looked cute. I cheated for the red ruffle and used paper though.
I was worried about making a 3-D cake for the first time, but it was easy by following the enclosed instructions.
Since, it was supposed to be a momma, I created straw for around her by piping strings/lines of yellow candy melts onto parchment paper and let dry. Then, I placed it around her and added Marshmallow Peeps as her babies chicks.
It turned out super cute and everyone loved it.
