Recently I asked my four closest friends to be my bridesmaids. I wanted to have that in place before anything because having these four ladies have always had, and watched my back. Continue reading
The war loudly rages on around me as I sit here and type this out. I can hear all, I can see all… And since no one is getting hurt, is fed and changed… Quite frankly they can do whatever they want.
I am very close to my Mom. She’s my best friend, ever. So while I’m trying to pick my bridesmaids and maid of honor I’m a little stumped. I have my three best friends from different stages of my life and my beautiful baby sister… If I could have five I would but I think four is a respectable number… I REALLY don’t want a massive wedding party. I want those near and dear to me to be my backup and save my butt from all the things that go on before, during and after a wedding. Continue reading
Random thought of the day, other then Pinterest has been taken over by hipsters…
I have four tattoos, none are very large in my opinion, about an hour under the gun each… Besides my small little guy who took 15 minutes. Continue reading
So recently my Mother in law sat us down and asked us how many people we planned on having at our wedding.
Very quick tip when dipping chocolate…
I’ve found two ways to do it but both have advantages and disadvantages.
Use a skinny cup if you have sticks in your cake bawls, let it get covered completely and then take it up. Roll it on its side letting the chocolate settle evenly. Do it slowly, if you go too fast it’ll spray out and if you do it too slow it’ll just drip down.
Or try spinning it quickly while still in the cup so it sprays off the sides and making almost a crown. When you have your desired thickness or thinness dip it back in the chocolate and twirl it gently while it’s still dipped, making a DQ like topper. Then when it all looks good and your happy with it put it down on the cookie try lined with wax paper.
I really like a taller skinny cup to dip in. It might take the chocolate a little longer to melt but it’s easier to work with.
My cake pops look like lollipops when I’m done with them now. You can clearly see a line where the chocolate came down and I love it!! My next project is to (seriously) rig up a hanging rack in my freezer to hang them to dry so they don’t have a flat top. I NEED a cake pop holder for my cake bawls… They aren’t that expensive and would make my life so much easier…
The Padawan hasn’t been eating well lately, at least at dinner time. So tonight I’m making something I KNOW she’ll eat… And Dad will too!
