#646 - mini ice cream cones

 These are super tiny, but the perfect size for an ice cream cone for my kids.  In fact, I don't mind i they have a second.
 I had a hard time trying to find these a few years ago, when I first saw these mini cones at a restaurant, but luckily, our local grocery store now carries these mini ice cream cones.

I didn't think my other pictures showed a good size comparison, so I decided to take a pic next to a blueberry and grapefruit.  Aren't they tiny?

#645 - Homemade Spiderman Cake

 My boys are all about Spiderman lately, or more like for the past 6 months.  For example, when I put Parker down to bed he requests the Spiderman theme song, Iron Man (the Black Sabbath song), or the A-Team theme song, not Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. 

Then Oster requested a Spiderman birthday cake.  I googled, youtubed, pinterest"ed" ideas, but all of them involved lots of red food dye.  I'm not opposed to red food dye, but I also didn't want to spend hours mixing to get the red color and really, who wants to ingest all those chemicals.

 So, I decided to go a little more natural with strawberries.  It actually turned out pretty good.  In fact, I think it looked even better.  I made this graham cracker cake I saw on pinterest (not my favorite to be honest, but everyone else liked it.)  Then topped it with melted chocolate spiderwebs.

I made half of it with chocolate graham crackers (that was better than regular graham crackers).
As I was cutting the strawberries I noticed they looked like Spiderman masks/faces.  Oster loved it!
In fact he loved it so much, he wanted the whole mouth of the Spiderman mask.  And I just saw the new Spiderman movie...sort of loved it!  My favorite so far.
