Today's Sweets are in honor of National Children's Book Week. They're also for all of us out there who like to complain when a movie ruins the book. ;)

Lord of the Rings: (not exactly a kid's book, but who among us didn't read it in school?)

That's hand-painted! And the rope bookmark is darling.
You know we have to have at least one Dr. Seuss title here:
I am so impressed by those circle stripes. They're not fondant; they're a combination of royal and run-in icing. Cool, huh?
Here's a test: can you name this classic book icon?

And finally, the book that became one of my favorite movies as a kid:
Sub'd by Heidi E., made by Say it with Cake
Bonus trivia: Did you know The Neverending Story
was originally written in German? It wasn't translated into English until 1983, and the movie was then released in '84. As a kid I didn't realize there even was
a book - I discovered and read it sometime in my twenties. (The movie follows the original story
almost exactly - a nice surprise!)
