...about last night.

...Mini needed baked goods for her schools bake sale today.  They are raising money from Cancer research...I...just received a cookie pop book from Ulysses Publishing for review...this is perfect...I'll make cake pops for Mini to sell...Well, it all ended in disaster (so, no pics...just trust me...it was ugly)...I started too late...the kitchen was too hot...and I was too impatient...It was like an episode of the Middle around here last night...chocolate was burning...cake was falling off sticks...balls were too big...smile...and I was defeated!  I told Mini there was no way she could take them to school...and we'll just make something for the next sale...Mini with the sad face...UGH!  It's 10:30...WTH am I going to bake now...I'm tired...good thing for Mini, I had some leftover oatmeal cookie dough from a couple days ago...I popped those babies in the oven and packaged them up real pretty and sent them off to school with Mini today.  Done.

But wait there's more...We had left over cake dough...so, this morning, I told Mini I would give the cake pops another try today...with less pressure. I just had to pull them off and she could sell them tomorrow to the kids...Wanna know what Mini told me????  "Oh, that's good Mommy...cause there's another bake sale tomorrow anyway."  What?!  I didn't have to stay up baking cookies last night...the bake sale goes on for two days?  ...Just when were you going to share that little bit of information?  It's funny how your kids extra curricular activities turn into your extra Mommy duties.  I heart being a MOM turned upside down...WOW!

...Now making cake pops is not really hard.  It just takes a lot of time and patience.  The cake and icing have to set up...took over night for me...

 ...I watched a cooking show during the process...

...the second time was a charm...Let's just see how Mini get's them to school tomorrow.

 Need more inspiration...check out Molly's book and website  here and here
