    Ok, I absolutely LOVE these!! I want to make these for my daughter's bday party but I just tried making them and it didnt go very well. You make it look so easy!

    JennBostedo: I doubt you'll ever see this comment since yours was written a year and a half ago! But I had to tell you anyway- when you described your idea for the chef hats I about died! That is the dang cutest thing! I would love to see how that turned out! Good job!
