        Hummingbird Cake is my all-time favorite! I love this gift jar idea. However, I am disappointed that it doesn't have instructions for the cream cheese icing which is the best part.

      I'm always willing to share pics of my babies :newmom: (I have 2 two-legged, and 2 four-legged)! Of course, the word babies is a bit misleading as the human 2 are 24 & 21. LOL!
