You see her walk back into the kitchen just seconds later and help herself to another minuscule piece of the sinful treat.

I also had lemon oil and coconut flavoring on hand.. oh la la the value brand (which still works fine). Step One: Take a couple of handfuls of marshmallows and put them in a microwave safe bowl. I like to make smaller batches because its easier to add the colour to the melted marshmallow than it is to work the colour into the fondant later. Step Two: Olive Oil Zucchini Cake.
