The sleepover cake

I've gotten a lot of questions about the sleepover cake from my daughter's spajama party. So, I thought I'd tell you how I made it, and offer the link should you want step by step directions. The cake was first frosted with orange icing (top 1/3). I then sliced twinkies lengthwise and placed them on the lower half. I sliced marshmellows lengthwise as well for pillows. The heads are nilla wafers. I frosted the "blanket" with pink icing (extending up and over the bottom 2/3 of the twinkies. I used Cake Mate decors for the eyes (stuck with icing) and florettes on the blanket. I found ruffle-y looking Fruit By The Foot for a bedskirt. I used Cake Mate writing icing for the hair. And the party hats are just Wilson Icing Decorations.

I was visiting Posy and came across your blog. I wish I had seen that cake about 15 years ago. How adorable. Now I want to have a sleep over with my nieces so I can make one too. Cute blog!

Lei, I just realized that I hadn't posted about this cake!! It is sooooo cute!! Um, maybe I can have a spajama party with my girlfriends and try making one?! I don't think that it would turn out as cute as yours though! :)
