I could have told you about all of the cool Holiday cake pops I've been busy making. Wait, actually I think I will tell you about those. Because those cake pops were absolutely gorgeous.
I made Santa hats and snowflakes. I make red velvet cake balls and chocolate peppermint stick pops. They were sooooo cute I just wanted to hug and kiss every single one. But instead of hugging them, I just ate them instead. And that worked out well, but then I packaged up the rest and set them on their way before I turned into a cake pop myself.
OK, well I think we are pretty much all caught up. And here we are, on a Tuesday no less, so it's time for some Tuesdays With Dorie. This week's TWD recipe was for Apple-Coconut Family Cake, chosen by Amber of Cobbler du Monde. I thought this cake was delicious, though it was definitely very, very sweet. I used sweetened coconut, and I think I should have reduced the sugar to compensate. But I didn't. So it was very, very, very sweet. I also didn't get any photos of the sliced cake, because I brought the cake as a gift to The Feldman's, who had me over for dinner. I wish I could say that I was trying to be polite or that I didn't want to be that weird dinner guest that brakes out the camera and starts photographing the food, but truth be told, I have no shame. I don't care if I was in the White House or visiting the Queen of England, I'd rather get a good cake photo and risk violating the rules socially of acceptable behavior...but this time I simply forgot to take my camera along. If I had my camera, you would have been able to see photos of an extremely moist cake, filled with delicious chunks of apples. But this one little photo is all I have to share of this cake. And even though it was a little too sweet, I'm still glad I made it!!!
