This was a very last minute birthday cake that I threw together for my son's girlfriend. She love's snakes! She has 2 of them as pets (they live in my basement)! I made it using the pan that they use for those retro doll cakes we used to see made in the 70's. Yup! I have one of those pans that was handed down to me from my Aunt. I figured I had to use it at least once.
