In the Kitchen: i've found a new hobby.....

all thanks to Lindsay who introduced me to Bakerella.
i LOVE this blog and all it's tasty eye-appealing treats.
And everyone seemed to know about it - except me!
Well since two of my kids have birthdays this month i had opportunities to try out some of Bakerella's treats.
First, with Lindsay for Alli & Lucy's joint party... cupcake pops.
(Which I am dying to try again... and give away to share just how cute they are. Next week for sure!)


So for Alden's school treats, I tried to convince him that I could bring cupcake pops but he wouldn't go for it.... so instead I found something he liked. Bakerella showed how to use melted chocolate to make logos... so i tried it. I think I can do better next time, but not bad for my first try. And Alden liked them so that's all that matteres!




I am going to try the Halloween cupcake pops along with other things.... I am sure I need more ideas of things to bake. :)

I actually just went there yesterday! They look so fun those cupcake pops! I won't be making them until you know...I'm not isolated from all the supplies I'd need but they look so fun. Loved the logo cupcakes as well. I love all your hobbies. Very inspiring as always! :)

Thanks for the website link! I checked it out and am so excited to try and make them. I'm in charge of the treat for Mother's Group in a few weeks and so I thought these would be great! (You're not the only one that didn't know about this site!)

I love bakerella. I haven't actually tried to make her stuff yet, but I may just have to someday. Good job on your pop they turned out great!

I totally LOVE that site!! I too am making the Halloween pops for Bella's class. I am going to stick to the pumpkins and the ghosts. The others are just a bit too much for me!!
