    so cute! Thank you, Lina, for the Pumpkin Cake recipe from last week! We made it on Saturday for a family party and everyone loved it! The best part I used low fat ingredients and it still turned out excellent!

    You cannot put the candy canes in the night before! I made these last night for daycare today and all of the red had bled of the cane and into a sticky puddle. Thankfully 2 & 3 year olds don’t care, but I wasn’t very happy. Any suggestions on how to fix this beside putting them on as you serve them?
