  1. You crazy woman! You should definitely write your own Baby-cakes cook book. This is so not my style because I have the patience of a fruit fly. Plus my kids would each eat a dozen of these making me feel further depressed. Looking at the sugar volume in the icing I'm guessing it turned out pretty tart? ARGGG! Great stuff!

  2. You'd be surprised, I make the middle verson size for Caleb and Lachlan alot and they love them. Though you do have lots of kids.

    Not as tart as I wanted, the only cranberrys I could find where dried and sweetened so it came out quite sweet.

    I wanted a bit more spice and zest.
