I made this for my son's 1st birthday. It was a pooh theme of course! I also made cupcakes, as it was a big party. The icing got darker as it set longer, but it was my first cake ever, so I figure it was pretty good. Please feel free to make comments and ask any questions! I used the Pooh 3-D cake pan and just made a sheet cake and round cake for him to sit on.
