New Baby Gift

 Our good friends' Hillary & Andy just brought their second baby (a beautiful little boy) into the world this week and we decided to treat them to a home cooked meal when they got home.  As a new family of 4, I can only imagine how tricky it gets to get laundry folded, beds made, and dinner on the table, so a meal is the least we could do!  Thanks to Pinterest (inspiration found HERE), I decide to make cute little labels for the food - just to bump up the presentation a little! :)
 Cherry Dump Cake Recipe:
* Preheat oven to 350
* Melt 2 sticks butter in 9x13 baking dish
* Pour melted butter in a container and set aside - making sure bottom and sides of pan are coated first
* Pour 2 cans pie filling (cherry is best) into baking dish
* On top of pie filling, spread 1 package of cake mix (Yellow or French Vanilla is best).
* Pour melted butter over cake mix. Spread evenly so there are no large patches of cake mix on the surface
* Sprinkle entire top with cinnamon to taste (pecan pieces optional)
* Bake for at least 60 minutes, or until all cake mix on surface starts to firm up (my oven takes 65 minutes)
* Serve with whipped cream or ice cream
