If you know who Bakerella is, well then you have drool on your keyboard too from looking at all the yummy treats she features on her site! Hello! Pudding cups, CHEESECAKE!! Oh yeah.
Well these little gems caught my eye and I thought they would be a great thing to try for Keira's birthday.
I knew I needed chocolate bark to make the outer shell of the cake ball so I made a trip to the US to get some, cuz Canada doesn't sell this. Apparently the US doesn't sell in between January and November. Crud. So I used Candy Melts instead and it was just fine. I was weary of the pink as the flavour was really strong when melted (I tasted. A. Lot.) but today they were just fine.
As a side note, I went to Fred Meyer on my bark buying mission and picked up the cake mix for $1.00!! The icing was around $1.25! YEEESSS!!
The whole process took about 3 hours. Its a tedious job but I am happy with results. They were a big hit with the kids and the adults at Keira's party! No one had cake on a stick before!!
Here's Bakerella's version:
This job takes practice. I think I may practice next on cheesecake pops! Oh yes, I said Cheesecake pops!

While we were away at being on TV, it was Daddy's job to take care of the girl's hair for school. Sean always said he couldn't do their hair, but this was excessive! This is how it came out!
No really, it was crazy hair day at school. I think Sean did a pretty good job at crazy hair! I put Keira's hair in sponge rollers and Kylie in tiny braids the night before. They had lots of great looks and Keira won the craziest award for her class!
And, well, what the girls get, Kaylum gets. He was a big hit walking around the mall.
