Strawberry Shortcake

It’s spring!  Or so I’m told…. We’re in the middle of a blizzard over here in the great state of Colorado. Yes, it’s May. And no, I am definitely not happy about this.  Well, technically the storm was yesterday (and it’s already melted) but I’m still bitter about it. With that said, I think it is safe to start posting some...

Easter Cake Pops

I don’t know what the weather has been like in your neck of the woods, but spring in Colorado has been a little rough. We’ve had at least one major snow storm every week for the past month and a half or so – and sometimes more than one.

Since making the cookie dough from scratch isn’t really going to help much...

Cake Pops

Actual Cake Pops were the second phase of my Cake Ball/Cake Pop experiments – while I still have a little work to do in the aesthetics department, I’ve got the taste part down!  Decorations of any kind were an afterthought, so I just added some sprinkles for a little Valentine’s Day festivity.  I promise I will get better at this, but you should...
