Checkerboard Birthday Cake - Eat Healthy Stockphoto My mom had a set of cake pans with separators that made a checkerboard cake. The batter had to be extra thick to keep it from running, but it turned out pretty. This way, however, is foolproof.
Green craft project idea - Repurpose a tuna can and clothes pins to make a flower pot or candle holders. Would be cute to do with a kid to work on fine motor skills. Would be cute for grandparents or as a Mothers Day gift! =) mothers day present :)
