Magic Jelly Bean Cake

Callie and I baked a cake on Thursday night before she went to bed!  She was such a good helper :)  What you need to do to make your OWN Magic Jelly Bean cake - is to simply pour your batter into two small cake pans (circular).



 My little thief!  She is SO her mother here :)


Yup - SO GOOD!  That was all she got, but man - she's right - it's SO GOOD!


After the cake has cooled (for us we did this Friday night), frost ONLY ONE of the cakes!  Callie did a great job - she only managed to sneak a little frosting :)


Then I gave Callie a little bowl of jelly beans...this she stole a lot of...man she has her mother's sweet tooth!


She did such a good job putting the jelly beans all over the cake :)
I explained to her that these were MAGIC jelly beans and that hopefully, tonight while she was sleeping, they would GROW!


Just trying to be artistic :)


She was really concentrating really hard!  It's so fun to do stuff like this with her now too.  I was able to say, "Okay Callie, put a green one on the cake" and she'd reach in and pull out a green jelly bean!


While Callie was in bed, I put the other cake on top of her jelly beans and frosted them together!  Looks like one cake :)


In the morning, when Callie woke up, I asked her if she wanted to check on her jelly bean cake!  This is what she came out to :)


I think she is a little excited, don't you :)


She kept saying, "It's SUCKERS!"  She then proceeded to pull out each one, lick it, put it back and take a new one out!  Yeah - we didn't share this cake with anyone else :)


Happy Easter!  Make sure to try your Magic Jelly Bean Cake :)
