Adorable Bake Sale "Cub Cakes" (Easy)

For awhile, it seemed like I was getting calls for bake sale donations a couple of times a week. Then, I started making these... quick, easy, inexpensive and they are usually one of the first things to sell out. Kids love the "furry" little paws.

Soon, I just started keeping the ingredients in my pantry and could have them delivered in a hurry.

Tuck this recipe away for the next time you get "the call" to bring a bake sale item or need to entertain kids or grandkids. =)
