    Lego Cake

    Yesterday we celebrated my husband and younger sister's birthdays. My sister Terra made a carrot cake and I made a chocolate Lego cake.

    My husband loves to build Lego towers with the kids, so I thought I'd try it out.

    The raised areas are marshmallows cut in 1/2, and frosted.

    I do have to say that I love chocolate cake, but it's harder to frost. I has only a thin slice of the carrot cake my sister made. It was yummy! She made it with applesauce. It had a limited amount of sugar in it.

    *A side note. I stepped on the scale yesterday, and found out that I've lost 20 pounds since the summer! It doesn't really look like I have. I've lost it all over, and not in one spot. My mom says that's the healthiest way.

    Cake Pops

    Bakerella has put out a book on making Cake Pop's. This book will be on my Christmas list.
    Here's the promo video for the book:
    I've made what I call Cake Ball before. It's using the same method as Bakerella does; I just don't add the sticks, and get as fancy as hers.
    Maybe I'll get more fancy over Christmas time.
