This review is based on 20 pre-k kids, they all loved it and thought it was the coolest thing ever! I really enjoyed making this and it was so beautiful once I got it all decorated. I used wilton dye and used the 18 tip for both the green and the pink. Thanks for posting such a fun cake that will make any kid smile.
