As you may remember, we are in "full packing mode" around here and after I bought everything I needed, I remembered that the mixer was packed! Did I let that stop me? No way, you CAN mix a cake by hand and that's exactly what I did!
Isn't he a hoot? Yes, pun intended!
I made a few changes from the original instructions. The area where the almond slices are was supposed to be yellow frosting and, you guessed it, the food coloring is packed! I also used Rolos for the eyes. The instructions suggested malted milk balls, but I thought he needed a little glitz! Instead of making frosting from scratch, I used canned - packing, you know!
