So, last year for Valentine's Day, I came up with this brilliant idea to use miniature boxes of cereal with cute little sayings that go along with the cereal name/brand. (ex: Frosted Flakes "I think you're greeeeat!") I was so excited because, at a time when Pinterest was the new place to go for ideas, I came up with this one all on my own. Needless to say, I wasn't the first one to think of it...I found all kinds of pictures and examples later on Pinterest. But that's ok. I'm still going to claim it as mine!
When I went shopping, my choice of miniature cereals were somewhat limited. I could either go with the General Mills boxes or Kellogg's boxes. I had some good sayings already for Lucky Charms and Honey Nut Cheerios, so General Mills won!
Cocoa Puffs: "I'm cuckoo for you friend!"
Trix: "There's no Trickin', You're a great friend!"
Frosted Cheerios: "You're a cool friend!"
Honey Nut Cheerios: "Bee my Valentine!"
Lucky Charms: "I'm lucky to have you as a friend!" or "I think you're charming!"
Cinnamon Toast Crunch: "You are the sweetest friend!"
Golden Grahams: "Our friendship is Golden!"
Cheerios: "You make my heart cheerful!"
I think they are very cute, and I'm happy with them...and so is Jacob!
I also wanted to share, in case you haven't already seen this, how to make a heart shaped cake.
Once the cakes are baked and cooled, you place the square cake on its side (so it is shaped like a diamond). With the circle cake, you cut it in half and place the two half circles on either side top of the diamond.
