Here come the pounds!

Well, I finally broke down and tried out Bakerella's Cupcake Bites and Cake Pops. Bakerella got together with Pioneer Woman and did some baking... as I'm sure you all know. I figured I might as well give it a try... My Spring cupcake bites.
I like to call these guys the Three Stooges!

I gave a try at the Cake Pops too.

That's the top of the cake pops there. Would you believe I asked my kids to help me on this. As soon as I started I told them they probably should find something else to do and they could just eat them, that's how they can help. Phew.... good thing. I don't recommend this for the younger crowd.

All in all it was pretty fun. HOWEVER, it was way more time consuming than I would have ever imagined. So.... do the cake the night before maybe. And I would SERIOUSLY consider having a friend help you, it would be fun too.
You can check out Bakerella or Pioneer Woman for instructions on how to do this and see some of their handywork too.

They turned out great! They look delish. Time consuming, but was it easy?

Wow! Those look great. I'm going to have to remember those for my sons' school...full size cupcakes are too big as a birthday treat but those look perfect!

You did a beautiful job...your hard work (and love) is obvious!
