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 18 years. I'm a stay at home mom who has been married to my best friend for 30 years, and we have two wonderful children, a daughter who is 25 and a son who is 20.
Although I have always enjoyed scrapbooking, it wasn't until a few of years ago that my affair with paper crafting began. Now I love all aspects of this wonderful and very fulfilling hobby.
My other hobbies are reading and baking and spending time with the family. We all enjoy travelling and visiting new places.
