When I was three years old, Mom made me a Winnie the Pooh birthday cake with this mold. Mom had to have her Mom, my Grandma Rasmussen, cut the cake because she had worked so hard on it that she could not cut it.

The eyes and nose of the cake were made of three big chocolate disks. My cousin Robby got one, my friend Lana got one and I got one. It is one of my best memories from when I was a kid.

I used the same cake mold to make my panda-obsessed daughter Amanda this cake for her twelfth birthday.

Happy sweet sixteen Amanda Jean! We love you so much!!
