  16. Beautiful cake! It looks professionally done. Your son has made amazing progress.

    Love the gum treats. What a cute idea :-) My kids are both in high school now (9th/11th) and although my son wouldn't go near a hand-stamped treat these days, luckily my 11th grade daughter still loves giving her friends goodies. I just made the wrapped/stacked mini Hershey bars from your 12 days of Christmas. Love the tutorial. Glad I bought it :-)
