Online Extravaganza November 21 - 28 ~ Don't Miss It!
...cake pop balls that is.
Remember when I had my Country INKers Spring Retreat last year and I had these adorable cake pops made?
Chickens and Ducks...so adorable.
Well this very talented lady made them. This is Kim Barrett and she has a FaceBook page called Cakepops 101 and she teaches classes in Chandler, so my buddy Melissa and I took her Thanksgiving class tonight.
I had tried to make them years ago when the cabinets were installed in my studio, we had like a grand re-opening kinda thing and OMG! they looked ok and were delicious but they were hard to do. So I totally wanted to learn from the best. We each had a set of tools and off we went.
Rollin' rollin' rollin...I got my balls all rolled.
Then I got them on their stick. That was the easy part.
Don't I look so proud? I did that. No mess either. Ok...I did wear gloves at first but then I took them off when I saw that it was not that messy...and we did wash our hands...and I am making them for my guys...we have all the same germs right?
Here they were after rolling in the melted chocolate and before being decorated.
Some didn't make it...rats I had to eat the evidence. Not as bad as Lucy and the candy balls. Plus a couple were saved for the piece de resistance - la turkeys...that is french not Turkeys from LA.
We made adorable turkeys and these were so fun.
Gobble till you wobble...well I did eat a couple duds and the yummy sugar cookies Kim made us. I won't sleep for a while.
We wrapped them up and put them in these cute little buckets for a Thanksgiving centerpiece. I was surprised they all fit. But thank goodness I had eaten those couple or it could have been a disaster.
Melissa and I and our precious Cake Pop Displays. I even wore my apron that Leslie made me just in case there was chocolate flying...Mel can be a wild cook...ha! I love all Kim's platters and tiers behind us.
All snug in the cupholder so they don't go flying around in my car on the way home. I can't wait till the guys see them tomorrow. I have them hidden in my studio so they don't eat any for breakfast.
Even with my sugar buzz I better hit the hay...I can always read a bit till I get sleepy. I have stopped reading Outlander for a while and am reading a Black Dagger Brotherhood book.
Have an awesome Wednesday and thanks for stopping in.
