This past week and weekend was another busy one. We had all the normal activities. Work, school, football practice, soccer and swimming lessons. Logan's football team was also having a bake sale. Now I'm not much of a baker but I knew I wanted to make something different. I didn't want to do the typical brownies or cupcakes. When I icing a cupcake it looks like I did it left handed while blind folded. I even have a fancy icing thingy from Pampered Chef!
So after doing some searching I decided on football shaped cake pops. I had all these grand ideas that I was going to do red ones and blue ones (team colors) and chocolate ones. After I made the red cake I decided that was enough. Instead of being a true red like I wanted, it was more of a pinkish red. It wasn't until 11pm that I realized my mistake, I should have done an egg white only cake. Apparently the yolks from the eggs tone down the color. Who knew?
I wasn't too happy but had plans to make this my test cake. Ha!
Then I realized how HARD it was to roll them into football shaped balls. My biggest fear is they would look like turds on a stick!
They ended up not looking TOO bad, though the laces were tricky. I realized the error of my ways after the fact of course. At least I'll be ready for next year!
