My son is huge into Mercer Mayer's Little Critter books. Since he was 2 he'd run around the library saying "I want Mercer Mayer." Seriously! So I have been wanting to make a Little Critter cake for some time.
"The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul. No matter our talents, education, backgrounds, or abilities, we each have an inherent wish to create something that did not exist before...Creation brings deep satisfaction and fulfillment. We develop ourselves and others when we take unorganized matter into our hands and mold it into something of beauty..."~President Dieter F. Uchtdorf
