Crispy Treat Birthday cake

What child doesn’t like crispy treats?

Personally, I love them but not the bland run of the mill treats. That being said, I have created some crispy treat recipes that are a hit with both kids and adults.

Here is the “cake ” that I made for my grandson. His birthday is Dec 26th so I always try to make his birthday very special. It’s not so fun when your birthday gets lumped in with Christmas.

So much fun. Stay tuned for the recipes.
