OMG!! I can't stop laughing about this so I had to share! Over the weekend I was going to deliver a cake and my mother offered to watch my 5 year old daughter for me.. So to keep my daughter busy, I gave her a 4" round cake, a little frosting, a lump of fondant and some playdough cutters... Thinking she'll just cut little bits and stick them on the cake... well, I'm not sure what she was thinking, but she convinced my mom that in order to cover the cake, you need to roll out the fondant in a big circle, smear the buttercream ON THE FONDANT, then pick up the fondant and lay it on the cake!! When I got back my mom was so confused! There was fondant and frosting smear all over the kitchen table, my daughter, and my mom and my mom goes.. "How do you think this is fun?!? You're crazy!" LMAO!! I can't belive she actually tried this....

Hey. she almost had it right. She knew the buttercream went between the cake and the fondant. Not bad for a 5 year old.

Ditto for the picture! My soon-to-5yr old does the same thing...she goes crazy for the cookies. I give 3-4 cookies and she can pick which colors of my RI that she wants...OMG I swear once she put about4 inches of frosting on ONE cookie...and made Hubby take a bite.
