Notes

My MIL asked me to make these many weeks ago and I finally got to it. I searched the Internet and combined what I thought sounded best. In the end, I topped them with a buttercream frosting, but a nice cream cheese frosting would be good, too.

Cute frosting! :) Did you just add some food coloring and not mix all the way? I love the whimsical feel. :)

absolutely gorgeous! I bet they were....(wait for it.....wait for it....) moist
