Our fair submitter said she made these sweet treats for her daughter's "Night Owl" party. Amazing! I remember being in 6th grade and having slumber parties where we stayed up all night jacked up on sugar playing truth or dare and talking about boys until the sun came up. What happened to those days? I need to have a slumber party. Maybe this awesome mom will make me an owl cake too!
I think we are nearing the end of the rain(bow) here in Seattle finally. It's still blustery and still showering here and there but we're getting more and more sunshine and soon it will be GLORIOUS!
