Birthday Cake Oreo Truffles

A few weeks ago I was strolling through Wal-Mart looking at some new cake decorating items when I noticed they had several new brands of cake making goodies on the shelves.

Yellow Cake Donuts + Donut Printable!

I'm happy to be sharing something new to MBC today, donuts! The kiddos used to ask for Donuts all the time, but it was just something I rarely ever bought.

Not to mention the fact that attempting to eat just one is really risky. I've been ... [ read more... ]
