    the cake recipe states two teaspoons of milk, but the directions do not tell you when to add. It's a small amount so it may not make a difference. The same goes for the filling - vanilla extract is listed as an ingredient but not included in the directions. Just makes you wonder if it is supposed to be there or not.

    Also the orange and green parts came out so thin it was hard to shape them.
