Tonight at HTBC we had our annual Baking with a Buddy. This is an event for Dads, Granddads, and children to have a cake baking and decorating contest. The first year of the contest JMM and EK created a treasure chest cake. Last year with help from Peeps, they created a three layer heart cake with M&Ms. This year we were running low on ideas, so with a little help from our dear friend The Baking Redhead we were given some inspiration.
This years All Around Prize Winner was a cake titled "Love Letters." We used a pound cake mix with some snickers added into it for a little extra kick. The pound cake was turned into a mailbox. The letters were made from Pop-Tarts that were iced, addressed, and stamped with a heart.
Thanks for the idea, Baking Redhead. Great job, JMM, EK, and Peeps! I can't wait to see what ya'll create next year.
