Baking Marathon


PHEW!!! Lindsay and I have been baking ALL DAY!!  The heart cookies were easy but the volume nearly killed us.
A well used baking sheet

Heaps o' Hearts

Ready for Icing

Icing started out well - ended not so well - oh well

I found these cute boxes for my staff

Happy Heart boxes of cookies
And then there were the Cake Pops.  I got the link to bakerella from a friend and was inspired to try and make the basic cake pop.  I was feeling very intimidated but Lindsay and I toughed it out and made a couple dozen!  Super happy!!  We delivered a few tonight already... the rest tomorrow!

You start with a crumbled cake.
 Add in cream cheese icing
 Red Candy Melts
Make the cake/icing mix into balls and put them in the freezer for 15 minutes before inserting the popsicle stick and dipping in the red melted candy melts and sprinkle with decorations.
 A dozen cake pops on their custom made cake pop stand my husband whipped up in 5 minutes flat!
 Packaged and ready to go!
Pretty and tasty!

I am all done now but still have my craft project to finish  and cards to write....... more on that tomorrow.


  1. The cake pops turned out great!

  2. I have to figure out how to do the dipping part better - it was a bit of a nightmare!!! Bit for a first try I was happy.
