As promised, today I’m sharing some pictures of the Easter goodies the monkeys and I baked up last week. I admit my motivation for making these treats was strictly for commercial purposes. I wanted to get some cookie and cake pop experience under my belt, and I figured the holiday was the perfect excuse to get baking. I was pleased with how everything turned out, but I’ve decided that given the choice between the two, I’d rather decorate cakes than cookies. I just feel like I get a little more bang for my buck with cake…there seems to be more of a wow factor to me.
Anyway, on to the cookies.
First is my basket of chicks. I cut orange M&M’s in half to make the beaks.
A plateful of flower power… Once again I added yellow M&M’s for the flower centers.
Now the cake pops…
Instead of simply making them into balls, I decided to get a little creative and fashion some carrot-shaped pops. I made the leaves using white chocolate.
The monkeys really had a blast helping out with the cake pops. Lucy was in charge of dipping the sticks into the chocolate, then Ty inserted the sticks into the carrots. Me? I dipped the carrots into the orange candy coating. We made quite a team!
Just wanted to thank everyone for the amazing response to my announcement about the bakery yesterday. I didn’t know I had so many fans. Ha ha! Y’all are great!
Also I wanted to let everyone know that I am aware that the HOT Rock blog is not working properly. Hopefully I can get that fixed soon so that I can start posting my latest cake pictures over there.
