I likened my next journey with sugar to all those first's in my life. Do you remember your first day of school? Or how about your first kiss? The anticipatory feelings of not knowing what the outcome will be but excited to get there. Sometimes your disappointed and the kiss just isn't that great or that first day of school felt more like prison than the fun place you expected. However on the other hand you may just be pleasantly surprised and your first kiss 20 years later still brings butterfly's to your stomach and perhaps your best friend today is the girl you sat next to on the first day of school...So what does all of this have to do with baking? Two words: CUPCAKE POPS!
I saw them on Bakerella's website and thought they were the cutest little things. I, like many before me, had some hesitation at first. I didn't know what to expect. Where they going to be perfect and taste as good as they looked? I didn't know but was about to find out...the result ladies and gentlemen was 'asi asi' or okay okay in english. They tasted great according to a trusty taste tester and as for how they look, I have a few techniques that I am looking forward to trying the next go around.
The lovely neighbor whom Teddy and I both have become friendly over the last year is moving :-( We sent her off right...with a sweet treat in hand!
