When my children were young, Beanie Babies were all the rage and I can remember driving all over the place to find them. As soon as a new one was released, everyone scrambled to be the first to own it! A few years after the craze had ended, I remember packing up a huge box of those creatures and storing them in our attic... ah, yes, the circle of life for a toy!
This cake was based on a toy that reminds me of a Beanie Baby... a YooHoo pink lemur that is the birthday girl's favorite little critter. Good thing I made the cake base for him. That was the only part that Taylor was willing to cut into!
