Carnations get a bad rap in the flower world these days. I think the campaign to revive their gentle image through baking is a good strategy.
Do your friends hate helping you move because you have nothing but incredibly heavy boxes of books? Maybe you can sweeten the deal by making them a book cake as a treat. Perhaps they'll come through with you if you're a good enough baker.
I think the very best thing about these cake pops is the rosy cheeks on the snowmen. Who doesn't get a little flushed when they spend any time outside in the snow? It makes me feel all cozy and festive. I need to go get some hot cocoa now.
From now on I demand that a tiny, pink fondant bear with a bow on her head on everything I eat. I want every restaurant to know I'm coming so it will be on my pad see ew when I get there. I don't think I'll eat her, maybe my personal assistant can carry her around for me. She doesn't even have to be edible. But she does have to be adorable.
