For those who haven’t heard, Google Reader is “retiring” which is really sad for those of us who have grown accustomed to it and really really really don’t like change… oh wait, that’s me, ha! Anyway, I’m checking out Feedly and BlogLovin’ at the moment to see how I like them (you can Follow my blog with Bloglovin here). Does anyone else use a different type of reader that they really recommend?
Moving on to much more exciting things… yesterday was Pi day (March 14th… 3.14) so I did in fact, eat pie on pi day.
Speaking of desserts… this coming Sunday is St. Patrick’s Day! So in honor of that, William (the little boy I nanny) and I made Cake Pops!
Make cake according to package directions, but be sure to add your 1 ounce of green food dye! Once cake is baked, allow it to cool entirely then use a fork to make cake into small crumbles. Add the entire can of frosting to cake bits and “smoosh” together until entirely incorporated.
Form your cake/frosting mixture into tiny little balls and place on cookie sheet. Freeze for at least 20 minutes. Melt chocolate in microwave or double boiler. Dip frozen cake balls into melted chocolate until entirely covered. Remove from chocolate and place on cookie sheet covered with parchment paper. Sprinkle on some green goodness. Smile for the camera… oh wait… that was just Will, you don’t actually have to do that.
And here’s the final product! I used both chocolate and white chocolate because I ran out of the white chocolate, haha! And of course for the traditional “cake pop” you can skewer these with wooden dowels to serve.
And just in case there isn’t enough sweetness in this post already…
