  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1/2 cup sifted powdered sugar

  • 1 pound cake

  • jam or jelly

  • bowl

  • spoon

  • knife (for cutting cake and spreading)

Here's what you have to do:

1. Check with a grown-up before you begin.

2. Wash your hands.

4. Slowly add 1 1/2 tablespoons of milk and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract.

5. Add 1/2 cup sifted powdered sugar.

6. Mix until it's smooth and spread-able.

7. Slice two pieces of pound cake 1/4 inch wide - (See, doesn't it look like a piece of white bread?)

8. Spread one slice with peanut butter frosting, the other with jam or jelly. (The ZOOMers used strawberry jam.)

9. Put the pieces of cake together like a pb & j sandwich.

10. Slice the cake in half, into triangles or rectangles (whichever looks more like a sandwich to you.)

11. Make sure you've got a big glass of milk handy before you dig in!
