"She Said Yes"

Yesterday was 10/10/10 and it was a very lucky day. Two of my good friends got engaged on this special day and will be planning their upcoming wedding. I just so happened to have some extra cake ball mix and decided to do some playing. I have been wanting to make Bride and Groom pops but just never did. Their engagement gave me the inspiration to make them so I would like to share them with you. These would make the perfect addition to any upcoming engagement parties, wedding showers, or even your very own wedding!

Happy Halloween

Alright everyone! I know you are all planning or going to those upcoming Halloween Parties! Now is the time to place your dessert order! Cake Balls and Cake Pops are a great "eat on the go" dessert.

Beauty and the Beast

"Beauty and the Beast" just so happens to be one of the greatest Disney movies ever! I remember watching it all of the time growing up and singing along with the movie! I just bought the Blu-ray last week when it came out! I saw the commercial the week before promoting the release and couldn't wait to get off work and head to the store to get it, along with my $10.00 off coupon thanks to a fabulous parent of mine! Well, since the movie is such a hit, it has been the theme on baking sites. I saw posted online Mrs. Potts Cake Pops and I knew I had to make them myself, so I went out and purchase all of the items I didn't already have. They took some time and I will make some corrections next time, but I hope you enjoy them! I know my co-workers did!

The Great Pumpkin

Growing up, fall was not my favorite time of year. Of course I loved dressing up for Halloween and going out to trick-or-treat, but I didn't enjoy the season very much. Now that I am older and living in the south, I have a lot more respect for this time of year. A lot of it has to do with the fact that I miss the northern fall season. I miss the cool weather, flannel, the changing of the leaves, raking the leaves and jumping into the piles, just to rake them over and over again, going to the pumpkin patch, and so much more. Don't get me wrong...a lot of this happens in the south, it's just not the same having to wait until the week before Halloween to carve my pumpkin for fear that the HOT temperatures will kill my pumpkin with a not so slow death. I mean come on now, I actually put on a bathing suit and laid in the sun in my backyard and got some color! It's a hot one down here! Anyway, back on topic. I do love fall and pumpkins and all the beautiful colors! I am in the process of all of my fall treats and just wanted to share my Jack-o-lantern Cake Pops!

Princesses All Around Us

This is definitely the season for princesses. Maybe it has a little something to do with the new release of "Beauty and the Beast" on Blu-ray! I have officially done a princess cake each weekend for the last 3 weeks and am loving it! I have one more next weekend, but that one will not have a tiara. Last weeks was for a lady celebrating her 24th birthday and she had fallen in love with Eva Joy's princess cake the week before. This weeks cake was for a co-workers 4 year old. can be a princess at any age!
