SO funny you mention that! I actually bought them with that exact purpose in mind, but ended up not using them. Maybe for the next cake! :)

Oh thanks Jeni! I actually looked around their site for quite a bit today, and could not find these jars. I wish I had asked you first... could have saved myself a couple hours work!

Well, I guess they could be considered sickly as you say it. I have enjoyed many a cupcake with frosting piled high, I just wanted to try it on a cookies as well. Sorry if it offends you. :)

The sunshine cake is for an elderly neighbor couple whom I have grown to love, and the rainbow cake is an early birthday celebration cake for my son who is turning five. :)

Well, I cant say I agree with anything you have written here... as a matter of fact I think the opposite. But thank you for taking the time to share your perspective! I hope that one day you will find that the Lord, our God, is the One true Savior, and accept Him into your life.

Hi Karen! I made TWO versions of this bar. The first version I made is Marthas, and the only change I made was to the caramel mixture, on which I substituted six milky way bars. (there is a picture of the twodifferentbars in the post) The second version is the bigger, brownie bar. That is the recipe that I have listed. In that recipe I used a bag of caramels and two milky way bars. Hope that helps! Amanda

I PROMISE you that you cannot taste any banana flavor. If you would feel more comfortable, go ahead and decrease the amount used to 1/2 a banana. I just know you will love it!

Samantha... this is completely my fault! I am so sorry. I had the wrong measurement on the baking powder... it should have read 2 tsp NOT 2 tbsp. That is was the centers deflated... my apologies!!
