A couple nights ago I hosted a dinner for my family at my place. I had a great time sharing my photos from my trip to Mexico and it was so good to have yummy sushi! I accented my table with some fun jars I got for free at the Drake Hotel’s annual warehouse sale. They acted as my pitchers of water for the night and they were so cute!
Also the last couple of nights I attempted to make cake pops for the first time. I had this whole plan for how to make them, complete with a schedule, drawings and all the accessories for decorating. I was hoping they’d turn out more like this. Darn.
Turns out that they are really tedious and annoying to make!! You have to get your hands all messy, you have to wait for the layers of chocolate to dry before adding another layer and the chocolate isn’t easy to work with. I totally have respect for bakers who can make beautiful ones. At least they taste delicious =) I guess I cheated a bit on that one because the cake is from Sweet Escapes by Jenn, some scraps she had from a wedding cake she made recently (even her leftovers taste amazing!). I guess I’ll have to think of something else to give people now…
