Read more Hello sugar-loving friends! Over on my recipe blog, Bijoux & Bits, I've been featuring some recipes that would appeal to any kid: superhero cakes (in this case, Guardians of the Galaxy!), cereal crusts (Fruity Pebbles!), and Star Wars cookies (of the "Chewie" variety!). Here's the scoop on each in case you're in need of something tasty to tempt your kids and of course, your own inner cranky-pants kid at heart. I experimented with fondant for the first time to create this Guardians of the Galaxy cake for the birthday of a Guardians superfan. Out goes, "Awesome Mix Vol. 1!" — in comes "Steve's Mix Vol. 1!" Just replace the name with your own birthday kid and you'll be set. Trust me, it's easier than it looks. Get the recipe here. These Gingerbread Wookiee cookies are oh so apropos for anyone still reeling in ecstasy from the tiny indie known as The Force Awakens. Okay, let's be real: it was huge and you want to eat some "Chewie" Wookiee cookies, right? Get the recipe here. Did you know that you can make a graham cracker-style crust out of pretty much anything that can be crumbled, including Fruity Pebbles cereal? It sounds weird, but it's tasty as hell. These Pretzel blondies with Fruity Pebbles crust are perfect for an after school work snack. Get the recipe here.

Question for you: do you put regular frosting under the fondant? Also that 'use any cereal' idea is great. It makes sense when you think about it. Reply Yep!
