What a fun order of almost 250 cake pops! It was quite the production for my little kitchen and my off skelter work schedule. I almost ran out of cookie sheets to hold all the pops, and stayed up til 3am and 1am to finish everything. Good thing I had a helper one night! So, it all worked out :) And, I am getting the hang of the candy coating consistency and how to dip each pop! I only had 3 big mess ups that were unusable, which was a good thing, cuz i baked barely enough cake to make 250 pops. Usually, I'll have at least a dozen or so pops left over so that I can nibble at my leisure, but not this time! I also had just enough gold sparkling sugar - whew!
My friend Mary asked me to re-make the top tier of her wedding cake as a surprise for her husband for their 5th year anniversary. I said, of COURSE! Though, to be honest, I was nervous. It's nerve wracking enough to do someone's wedding cake, let alone re-create a cake that someone else made. And, she only sent me one picture which was hard to see the details on it. That, however, turned out to be a blessing, because I didn't have to create it exactly ;)
I was lucky enough to see his reaction when I went to deliver the cake - he recognized it right away, and said it brought back memories of their wedding day. What a wonderful compliment!
Happy 5th Anniversary to Mary and Chris, one of the most loving and inspiring couples I know - I love you both!
