"Baked it in a 13x9. My son said it needed "herbs" so we sprinkled the top with 2 kinds of green sprinkles at the end."

"When I mixed the vanilla frosting and the red food coloring the color came out pink. The more red I added the pinker it got"

"Good for a laugh, didn't trick anyone. The frosting was pink, couldn't get it to go red! A bit fiddly cutting the super sticky fruit roll-ups! Use high quality white chocolate if you want curls, i used cheap stuff & it ended up looking more like white powder! Keep the finished cake cool until you need it, otherwise chocolate melts into the frosting & disapears! Tastes good, made everyone laugh!"

"Made this for the Cub Scout banquet for auction and it was a hit. Add green swedish fish for anchovies, halved Ferrero Rocher chocolates for meatballs and we had a great looking dessert pizza!"
