With that said, my brain has been full of ideas for the shower, many of which you will see over the next few weeks. As I was researching ideas, I fell in love with Bakerella's cake pops. If you haven't seen them, you need to check her site out. Just prepare to leave hungry. I am trying to be realistic about how much I can tackle for this shower, so I wanted to do a dry run first. And since I also wanted to do something sweet for my kids' teachers, it seemed like a great opportunity to combine the two.
Cake balls... the balls were easy. However, I wasn't as good at dipping them in chocolate. Mine are chocolate cake and cream cheese icing dipped in semi-sweet chocolate. I then added a few sprinkles to help hide any imperfections... err, I mean to be festive. And if my co-workers are any indication, they are delicious. They have thoroughly enjoyed eating the ones I brought into the office.
For the teachers, I packaged the balls up in bags and made a little Easter label for them. I end up making about 10-11 packages for daycare to cover their teachers and the front staff whom I adore.
Let me know if you try them. And if you have tips for dipping them in chocolate, let me know. As you can see in the pictures, mine are a little messy.
Happy Maundy Thursday...
