will barter fondant webkinz

My friend asked me if I'd be willing to trade some fondant webkinz heads (for cupcakes for her son's birthday) for photoshoots for my boys-- of course. So here's my end of the deal. Along with a tutorial for any moms and dads out there trying to make your child's webkinz birthday party dream come true. These can be attached to sugar cookies, cupcakes, or made larger to cover all cake or a few mini cakes.

arlyn- I am laughing someone gave my son one and he refused to register it online- he kept saying i don't know what the big deal is--I saved the tag in case he changed his mind- I was on the website doing "reserch" and he decided they were cool now- LOL- we try to stay under the commercial radar!
