Pin Eight: Starbucks wants my Swedish Meatball Cakepops...

So as the dreaded 10 Day eat clean challenge awaits me tomorrow- I decided to end things with a bang...I attempted to make cakepops...My slight obsession began last year when I discovered Starbucks birthday cakepops for the first time in Banff, Canada ~ one of probably, the prettiest places on earth...

At the time I was 7 months pregnant and while the hubs and my family enjoyed a trek up & hike around the mountain, that was the last thing on my agenda...I instead took in the sights of the lovely gift shop and the delights of a Starbucks...And let me tell you I enjoyed it large...I had 6 cakepops in a row and even took some for the road- The thing was instead of ordering them all at once, I kept getting back in line and then saying to the clerk “me again, no judging”...and rubbing my than really large belly...
I was one of those gals who at 7 months prego everyone {and I mean everyone, strangers & oddly older men too} liked to:
a: Touch me...No matter where I was, work, grocery store, post-office, party- wherever...People were drawn  to touch my belly...
b: At 7 months I was huge so I don’t really blame them- but most people would make a comment like, “Any day now eh?” or “Must be soon”...then when I said nope I still have 2 months they didn’t know what to say except, “Wow, you’re so huge”...One guy hadn’t seen me most of the pregnancy and when he did at 7 months he looked stunned and blurted out “You look so ripe”...Lovely, just lovely....
  
Anyways, pregnant or not I’m definitely a fan of the cakepop- So I tried to find the easiest method to produce these little beauties...

Pin Eight: The Mummy Method for a cakepop...
I found myself this Pinterest recipe and went to work...Now understand, I purposely looked for an everyday gal recipe and was encourage when I found this Cheating Mummy Method...If you do a cakepop search on Pinterest, get ready to feel intimidated-  the expertise & detail some people create on these little balls is amazing...So, I therefore chose a simple recipe in which I thought I'd be able to handle it...
I don’t know what I did wrong but instead of lovely little balls of delight- I ended up with these Swedish looking meatballs...


So, my baking has got get better than this right? But for now, I’ll leave it to Guest Blogger, baker extraordinaire. Alyssa Wink who sweetly made me some of the most delish cupcakes as a goodbye to things I love- before I take the 10 day eat clean pledge...


She is wickedly creative & friends, you get to meet her this week...I hope you enjoy her tips, tricks & delish baking delights...
