NOTE: The boys wanted to be sure and take their "creatures" home so their cousin Emily washed and dried them as soon as the the candles were blown out and while I was cutting the cakes.
We did not light the candles and sing until later in the day but the boys kept checking out the great cakes they had done!! It was indeed fun for all!!
