Chocolate Mice

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2013
CUTE, CUTE!! I used this recipe to entertain girlfriends for lunch. The menu was humorously themed, of animals found here on my ranch. Main dish was "Crow's Nest" (a Fritos and chili dish) with "Frog Eye Salad" (acini de pepe and fruit)and of course, a tray of the Chocolate Mice for dessert. They were easy to make and created a lot of laughter. I'm making another batch for the holidays for my little granddaughters, to go along with the story of "The Christmas Mouse". The chocolate mice bodies kept absorbing the powdered sugar, so I will try this recipe again, substituting vanilla wafer cookie crumbs rolled in the powdered sugar.

American Flag Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2013
I frosted this cake with the Fluffy White Frosting recipe that I found on this site. I did not add any embellishments to the frosting because I wanted the effect of cutting a solid white cake and revealing the flag inside. Make sure you cool the cakes until they are stone cold before attempting to cut them in pieces. If they are at all warm the cakes will crumble and break. This cake was a hit at the Fourth of July family and friends picnic. I presented it with four sparklers poked into the top and lit as I carried it out to the table!
