And finally for our Ratatouille Dinner and Movie Night, Victoria made Colette's Apron Cake.
2 to 2 1/2 cups white frosting
Pale green sour strips or fruit leather
Kids kitchen utensils (wooden spoon or whisk) we skipped that part
Blue decorator's icing
Set the baked cake on a serving platter. Cut away the upper corners of the cake to form an apron shape. Frost the cake with the white frosting. Stick the sour strips into the top of the cake to form the neck strap and into the sides of the cake to form the apron strings.
Stick the kids cooking utensils into the apron in the lower left side of the cake. Using the blue decorator's icing and a writing tip, outline the shape of the pocket, with the utensils poking out of the top. Form the pocked with a mound of decorator's icing, smooth it out well, and add a sour strip. Use the icing to write "what's cooking?" on the apron. Serves 10 to 12.
Recipe came from Victoria's cookbook, Ratatouille What's Cooking?
