Today we had our first
snow slush of the year. Abraham was determined to enjoy it to the fullest. There was just enough snow to make a mini-man and a barrel full of slush balls to ambush Daddy when he gets home.
While the kids were enjoying the slush I did a little baking. I made my first attempt at cake pops. The nifty Babycakes Cake Pap Maker made creating the little cake balls a breeze.
The learning curve came in when the dipping and decorating started. This time around I kept it simple with a coat of milk chocolate. Then I drizzled some Wilton eggnog flavored melts over them.
There were a few that looked like I was drinking a little too much eggnog...lol...but as you can see I got a better.
Just a few tips for the beginner like me. Make sure your melts aren't too melty (it that a word?...well it is in my world). Also, take it slow and enjoy the process. I always rush through the decorating and expect fabulous finished product.
I have yet to try these with the kids but I will definitely take out my Babycakes again!
Hope you all are cozy up in your favorite spot...enjoying your day!
