I've been hearing a lot about cake pops, so I decided to investigate and found out that these have been popular for a while. I decided to give them a try, but had problems with the chocolate - I just could not get it thin enough. I will have to keep trying as practice makes perfect :-) I decorated them for Easter and I think that for a first time, they actually came out quite nicely. The cake is chocolate, the frosting is chocolate and of course they were dipped in chocolate. Are you beginning to think that I have a chocolate addiction ... if so, you'd be totally right!!! I love anything chocolate but my favorite are the Lindt truffles and the Ferrero Roche bonbons. Also, let's not forget the bonbons from Leonidas, a chocolate store in Belgium and Holland! Yummy.
I was born in Lisbon, Portugal but raised in Durban, South Africa. We have now called Pearland, Texas, home for the last 19 years. I'm a stay at home mom who has been married to my best friend for 31 years, and we have two wonderful children, a daughter who is 27 and a son who is 21. I'm also the proud grandma of a 3 year old princess and a sweet baby munchkin :-)
Although I have always enjoyed scrapbooking, it wasn't until a few of years ago that my affair with card making began.
My other hobbies are reading and baking and travelling with the family to visit new places.
