My little girl LOVES Oswald from Nick Jr.
Henry, the penguin Oswald's friend
and talks about his hot cocoa quite often.
He likes it with,"Two marshmallows. No more. No less."
How I created this cake:
I used an 8 cup batter bowl from Pampered Chef.
It's the one people use to make the barbie cakes.

Just like Henry likes it!
(But added one more since it was a
The handle is 1/2 of a doughnut
held in place with toothpicks.
This was a big hit (and delicious too!).

They would've made this even better.
