Every Christmas Laura exchanges small gifts with her co-workers. This year she thought it would be fun to make her little treats, with the help of family. So after picking up the supplies to make cake pops, we started our baking at 3:00 pm. on Sunday.
Laura mixed up the batter, which we baked in a special pop maker. The baking was the easy part, as the decorating took all evening.
Matt placed all the sucker sticks in the round cake pieces.
We struggled with the consistency of the icing for what seemed like hours, which it probably was! I haven’t laughed so hard in a long time.
Matt searched for answers, while Laura debated whether to continue with the project.
As you can see, the results improved.
I was in charge of the icing, and Matt got creative with the decorating.
We finally completed the last one at 11:00 pm, with all of us being very tired, but ever so happy to be finished.
While we were busy, Jonathan decorated the sugar cookies.
The cookies look great.
Trish and Tom were great taste testers.
Laura and I want to extend a big thanks to Matt, as without his help we would have been going until midnight.
