If you ask my nieces their ages they aren’t six or nine, they are six-and-a-half and nine-and-a-half. It makes a big difference when you’re that age. My son is turning one-and-a-half this week so I thought I’d make him one-and-a-half cakes for his special day! But I didn't’ stop there. I decorated the final display with cookie sandwiches and dipped marshmallows, all in keeping with the one-and-a-half theme! Check out all the details over at my blog - What is that liquid I drizzle all over my cakes?? SIMPLE SYRUP!
