flop…

Now that the house is cleaned and the kitchen is back in service…I’m back at baking…my friends commented how pretty I make my cookies n cakes…n for the lucky few that gets to taste them…they said they’re yummy (at least that’s what they tell me) but one thing I know is whenever I bring my baked goods to work…it’s gone by lunch time =P

But there are always flops that I never wrote about. This is one of those flops I did that didn’t turn out to be too bad n still presentable.

One of my coworkers which I like to categorize as friend is relocating n thus leaving us. Her husband got a job at the new location and as any good wife would do…she is relocating with the husband. We will miss her dearly…n I helped plan a breakfast and luncheon to bid her farewell…

Back in april…it was cupcakes week on Martha…I saw this segment…n fell IN LOVE with them and wanted to make them ever since. So I decided to make these for the breakfast…

This is what it’s supposed to look like….but cuz I didn’t read the instructions correctly…I forgot to put in the lollipop sticks before the chocolate dip dries n by the time i realized it…all of them were dried (sam suggested drilling a hole to insert the sticks..i told him no)…so no more lollipops…I didn’t wanna spend any more time on it…so just made them into chocolate dipped cake balls…

Didn’t take a pic of it cuz I was so disappointed…but I’ll def redo this one =P  mebbie a treat for our housewarming party???

They were actually a big hit at the party and my coworkers thought I baked the cakes in circles and asked me how it’s done…such engineers. I must say, deconstructing the cake is half the fun =D
