Home is comforting —but the new sights we saw, friends we made and tastes we experienced the last couple of weeks shine brightly for us! While, we typically share the latest dish cooking in one of our kitchens—today, we want to share two exciting culinary treats that just happened to come one right after the other. [Read more…]
What fun we had this week when we were invited to appear on KSHB’s KCLive TV show. In case you missed it, you can watch it now and share in the fun.
It is always a treat to be on television but it is magnified when we get to talk about cake pops and our newest cookbook, The Big Book of Babycakes Cake Pop Maker recipes.
We adore Michael and Michelle and the folks at Channel 41 couldn’t have been more hospitable to us. It was a pleasure sharing cake pop tips complete with Santa directions. We made Brownie cake pops from our cookbook and those little bites of brownies are scrumptious. You can find all kinds of creative, out-of-the-box cake pop ideas in our new book. (Available from thebabycakesshop, Amazon or Barnes and Noble)
Cake pops can answer the question for gift giving this season. You can surprise a crafty friend with a Babycakes Cake Pop Maker and a copy of our cookbook or you can make cake pops and deliver them to friends, neighbors and teachers. We all have those hard to buy for folks on our lists this season. Why not think of giving cake pops to that special some one? They are such a welcome treat and there will be smiles all around! Guaranteed.
It seems like only yesterday that I was writing a blog about our daughter returning to school after the summer of 2011 that was jam packed with fun, friends and activities galore. That was so last year. Did I blink? The fast forward button of my life must be jammed. Life is spinning by at an alarming rate. Yes, school started AGAIN this week. Really? On top of all that hormonal emotion is the fact that our daughter began her freshman year in high school. Four more years! Is that all that is left!? [Read more…]
Spring has exploded in the Midwest and painted the country side with vibrant colors and new life. I was just not content to let Mother Nature have all of the fun—and had to get in the kitchen and bake up some sweet creations of my own. Cupcakes and Cake Pops from the Babycakes appliances hatched these darling little lambs. I missed having some little hands in the kitchen to help out—and I think children would be delighted with the little lambs–but even without kids around they are just so fun to make and serve. They are perfect for Easter or any springtime event and they will bring lots of smiles and fun to the table.
Bake your favorite flavor of cupcakes and cake pops using your Babycakes Cake Pop and Cupcake Makers, then follow these easy directions to make your own basketful of lambs, using the cupcake for the body and the cake pop for the head. You might find a fun new flavor of cupcake and cake pop in either of our two new books. The directions to assemble these cute little guys are below, but the photos and how-to information in 175 Best Babycakes Cake Pop Maker Recipes would make these especially easy to make. (You will find all kinds of tips on dipping the cake pops and painting faces in that book, plus other fun, creative suggestions for decorating cake pops.)
The appliances are just so fun to use we can’t stop using them and are always baking up something new! Now bake some of your own—then tell us about them, or even share a picture of your little lambs . We would love to hear about your fun. [Read more…]
