I had a book when I was a little girl, Mud Pies and Other Recipes. It was written just like a grown-up cookbook, except that the ingredients were things like sticks and sand. I LOVED that book. When it came back into print after many years of being unavailable, I knew that I wanted to throw a party inspired by it. Lots of tutorials based on this party will be posted on the Tikkido website.
