This might be surprising, but one of my favorite things to do is bake. I know, unbelievable. One of my favorite childhood memories is baking cookies with my Uncle Daniel…some of the best times ever. Also, I blame him for my addiction to cookie dough (and the extra
10 20 pounds that goes with it). I don’t bake that often, but I love it.
Yesterday I spent the day making cake pops for Kai’s birthday party today. I’ve never made these before, but after having them at Joy’s baby shower, I had to try to make them myself. After baking the cake, making the cake into balls and shoving the balls onto sticks, the cake pops look like this:
I used confetti cake to add a festive touch! It makes the cake look kind of dirty, but when you bite into the ball you can see the confetti cake and I like that. After getting the balls on the sticks, you have to get ready to work the chocolate. The chocolate makes all the difference.Aren’t they beautiful? Then I had to wrap all the little f*ckers up in plastic and white ribbon. Fortunately, G and I don’t do anything other than watch tv so I had plenty of time to wrap last night. Here are the finished products!!Aren’t these happy bouquets? I love them.
I also plan on eating at least 20 at Kai’s party so I went on a run this morning (because if you run for a little while, you can eat WHATEVER you want, right?). It was pretty out when I left, so I took a couple of pictures.It’s going to be a nice day in South Jesus today!! Oh and I found a shirt from long ago (2004) when I ran the other Run Hit Wonder in L.A.!I ran this race (and cried in the middle of it) with my great friend, Jamie, from law school.
She was serious runner, ran in college and even WON races. She made me go fast and I cried. Yes, I am pathetic.
Have a great Saturday!
