I know you won't believe it but my 8 yr. old son made this cake with virtually NO help from me and I think he did an awesome job!!!! It was for a cake decorating contest/cake auction at his school and 5 min. before we left the house the cake exploded!!! The apples were too heavy......so they showed this photo of the cake and auctioned it off anyhow with an I.O.U. that he would make another for the winning bidder! He was thrilled it went for 20 bucks!
