Friday we had a March of Dimes (MOD) bake sale fund raiser so I whipped up some Peanut Butter Truffles
When I was getting towards the end of making the truffles Lyss gets up for the day and joined me in the kitchen to watch me finish up. When she asked if she could have one I let her have a small piece…to my horror she immediately goes to the kitchen trash can and spits it out. I am thinking oh my goodness all of these truffles taste horrible…what am I going to do?! I pull it together and ask Lyss why she spit out the truffle and if they taste bad to which her response was…Mommy I’m sorry but those cake bites taste like peanut butter, which made me let out a sigh of relief and I shared that they are peanut butter truffles which Lyss replied…well then Mommy they definitely taste the way they are supposed but you forgot that I don’t like peanut butter. Whew! Disaster avoided lol
Usually I have tunnel vision the week before Alyssa’s birthday party because there is always so many last minute details that need my attention not to mention that I am baking her cake & other treats (so they will be fresh) and we always make the food ourselves. But this year when a friend came up to me about a month ago and asked if I would please make her nephew Angry Bird cupcakes and cake pops for the same day as A-Bear’s party I couldn’t tell her no, especially since I love helping people’s faces light up with special treats on their special day (truly that is what it is all about).
However, when my ever jokester hubby delivered them he told Barb that I was so sorry for the way they came out and hope she would forgive me (so so mean!) thankfully she loved both the cupcakes and cake pops despite hubby’s bad joke (he did come clean and tell her he just wanted to scare her for a moment).
Hope Nick had a wonderful birthday!
Yup there is definitely no rest for the wicked…
After staying up until 1am finishing my wedding bouquet I decided to do some cake pops (cake had already baked and cooled earlier in the evening) then at 2am I decided I had to go to bed. Yet at 7am I was wide awake so I finished the little treats to take into work for the winning team of a contest we ran.
Here are the finished products:
(I kept them simple yet delicious)
