Lil Angel saw a box of cotton candy and wanted to try some.Lil dude joined in without even knowing what his sister was asking!So giving in to their request we came home with a box of shocking pink cotton candy.
The next day I baked this cake and Lil Angel promptly got out the box of cotton candy and persuaded me to use it as a topping for the cake! I did not have the mind to say no. So I let her top up the cake as she pleased and let her help with setting up the table and the result is what you see below 🙂
