    I wish we didn t live in a world where it s thought of as skeptical for giving out home made goods! But that s the truth. This sounds great, except I have to say I hate candy corn! The cookie though, I m loving the sound of a chocolate cookie cake! I had a dream last night I was ordering cookies at a shop and couldn t make up my mind and then I see this cookie cake in my feed! It s a sign. ?? I must make it!
