    Hey, if it's gonna be green, it has to be neon. Kiss the kitty kids for me, and have a happy holiday.

    2. If you'd be generous enough to share the recipe, I'd welcome it (I don't need the buttercream icing - it looks good enough without it).

  2. I'm in heaven as well, though not for the view of the cake, which would be off-limits for me anyway. Can you guess my reason for feeling so? You won't need three guesses - though there are indeed three reasons.

    1. WHY NOT? the shawl design is called "neon beast", so I am using neon green and neon pink and neon blue to make it. it's going to be FABULOUS!
