I've always loved baking and cooking for people, but I used to think that I wanted to do hair and makeup but that got old to me pretty quick. I feel like baking and decorating will never become boring because there are so many different things that I could make or try and the biggest plus is that I could torture my family and friends by making them try all of my different creations whether good or bad.. lol. I plan on going to culinary school in the near future but first I'd like to see what I could do on my own and how far it will take me. I also just want to keep track of the things that I'm making so a blog will help with that. All comments and opinions are appreciated, I like constructive criticism, I feel like it will help me to improve.. Sooo...

I came across Bakerellas blog a few weeks ago and I absolutely love the idea of cake pops! They taste great, you could make them into basically whatever shape you like and they just look cute! So I decided t
hat I would make my own for Easter and I think they came out pretty good. I sent them to a friend or two and they loved them. I definitely plan on making them again in the near future, I've actually made them twice already. The first time I wasn't really prepared because I didn't have the Styrofoam to hold them up to dry after i made them so i put them in a cup and they all wound up cracking.. They still tasted good though! The second time I was prepared, I took a trip to the craft store.. picked up the Styrofoam, extra candy coating and some extra lollipop sticks. For some reason I go through lollipop sticks like water.. Well i know why, I like to stir the candy melts while they're melting with them and I had a few trial and error chicks.

Here are some pics (=

I get a little messy when I don't read directions lol


Chicks.. Everyone liked the guy with the glasses.. I liked the girls =P

Butterflies.. These didn't come out so great. They weren't thick enough to dip..
