The girls from next door came over today, to bake this cake. We wanted to do this before school started again. We used a Red Velvet box cake mix (easier with younger kids). This particular pan had been talked about on the forum before, so we used a Wilton’s #7 Flower Nail in the head during the baking. I held my breath when it came time to un mold the cake, but everything came out beautifully. The Flower Nail worked. We all had a great time!

That turned out very well, great to hear how well the flower nail worked!  Did the kids love it?

Hi Julie,
They liked the baking and loved the decorating. Frosting was the big hit. Slightly warmed cream cheese icing and Pez for the tentacles. I think they loved it.
There was a lot of laughter and finger licking going on by all of us. tongue rolleye
