Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made this cake for my son's birthday. I made this cake for my son's birthday. He loved it. I used store bought frosting which I tinted. Also, I found plain M&Ms to decorate it with. I didn't have enough room to cut out the triangles that go on the back. However, the cake still looked good.
