This is a practice shoe I made with some leftover fondant from last week's cupcakes. It is a scaled-down version, but a pair of these would be super cute on a baby shower cake!

Another Cake Pop Disaster

We were supposed to go over to the Jacksons' today for football, but that was before I realized how unrealistic it was for me to think I could actually go enjoy myself and then come home and be able to finish with my way too much housework and school work to do around here.

Anyway, I stayed up late last night after our LONG day of parties yesterday (the fourth party we never even made it to) to make some football cake pops. I decided to add a little more frosting than I usually do, thinking they would taste better. They sure did taste better, but by this morning most of the cake pops either had cracks in the chocolate or had fallen off their sticks. I was so mad about the cake pops not working and about the fact that I couldn't go, that I just tossed them in the trash and didn't even think to take a picture of the disaster that was my football cake pops.

I guess I learned to NOT add extra frosting into the mix!
