This looks awesome! Could you please tell me whether you used an 8” x 8” pan or a 9” x 9”? (Please forgive me if you provided this info and I missed it.) I’m guessing we could use either size, but wondering which one you designed this for? ‘Can’t wait to make this! Good job on the real food components!
