How exciting! It's your birthday and your slice of cake is on its way! Over the bridge and down the hill. But wait a minute. Look at those pictures. Did Mom bake that cake or did someone else do it? Is that Little Bo-peep?

And, hey, there's Humpty Dumpty. As the slice of cake makes its way to the party,  it travels through fairy tale and nursery rhyme land. Who can you find?
