My Baking Adventures

I am in love with this blog that I saw on the Martha Stewart show:

She makes the CUTEST things ever. Initially what sparked my interest were the cupcake pops. I was dying to try them and to make them for Makaylee and Bailey's birthday party. I did make them, but sadly forgot to take pics before they were devoured at a BBQ we went to. But I decided that for the birthday party to just make cake balls. Makaylee wanted cupcakes at her party, and I was trying to figure out how to decorate the cupcakes to match the Abby Cadabby theme. Bakerella answered that quest just in time with a melted chocolate technique to make toppers for the cupcakes. I have been having so much fun trying all the new techniques, so I had to try the cupcake bites as well for a BBQ we went to over the weekend. Needless to say, they were a hit there. The best part about the cupcake bites and balls is that there are so many steps to them. Normally, this would be a bad thing, but Makaylee LOVES cooking and helping out in the kitchen, so I can really drag out her baking enjoyment with these yummy treats. Here are my pictures of some of the my attempts so far:

I have been craving cake balls for over a week now, but have yet to make them because I don't really need to gain any more weight! I'm going to cave in soon, I have a feeling, haha!
