Snowman Brothers (Mine on the Left; Sadie's on the Right)
I saw some of the other cakes entered into the contest, and I cannot help but think that, in their processes of creation, there was more than the "minimal parental involvement" requested on the entry form. Isn't that the way it goes on school projects, though? We parents are a competitive lot. I told Sadie this morning that, whether she wins a prize or not, she did a great job and can take great pleasure in the fact that she did almost all of it by herself (including the awesome Twizzler scarf fringing effect).
(Apologies for the state of our kitchen floor, by the way. We're having them redone, and the whole house is a wreck.)
