Sweet Result

Last night was the final session of our book, Bridges on the Journey.  It is the bible study I am doing with my family.  These last few months of taking this journey closer to God with my family has been incredible.  I have learned so much about the beautiful hearts of the women in my family and their desire to know God more.  I am excited that they all want to continue growing in God with me!  

It was also my cousin's birthday two days ago.  One of her favorite things is Starbucks Birthday Cake Pops so I attempted to sort of duplicate those as a little celebration for her last night.  As you can see, I didn't even attempt to make them perfectly round as Starbucks has them.  I'm sure they tasted just as good.  If anyone has tips on how to get them perfectly round without the cake splitting in two and falling off, please enlighten me.  I had the worst time EVER attempting these for the Harry Potter Party (as you can see, they cracked).  I also made some mini cupcakes with buttercream icing.  I put various toppings on them such as cookies n' cream crumbles, marshmallows w/ chocolate sauce, fresh blueberries and strawberry preserve with a fresh strawberry on top (my favorite).
