I made these for my friend's son's birthday party this past weekend....and they turned out really cute! Of course though the brown is not dark enough so I had to use the jar frosting for that dark brown around the edges. I also had to use a box of cake mix and then a cake mix from scratch because I didn't have 2 boxes, but everyone loved it...I think it was the coconut extract I used forthe buttercream frosting...heehee..try it! It is so much yummier than vanilla extract! That is my little secret!! but I will share!
