I thought it would be fun to do a DIY Post for a challenge with my Down The Read-A-Thon Hole Challenge. I set out to make Eat Me cakes, but with crazy busy life and little time they did not turn out very well at all. I decided to turn my failure into success and from that came the “Eat Me” Cake Shake and let me tell you it was absolutely delicious. So since this is a challenge that can earn point towards the read-a-thon I will give some instructions. The challenge is to create an Alice Inspired DIY project. It can be anything of your choice. Post about it with the pictures and instructions! Extra points for those who attempt the Eat Me Cakes!

4.) Pull finished golden brown cake out of the oven and let cool until completely set
