4th of July Cake Pops

Okay well first I have to rave about this new machine I got.  It's a Babycakes Cake Pop machine!  You read me right, cake-pop-machine.  Genius right?  I mean, for one it made it a lot easier to make the pops and for another thing, it made it easier to dip the pops.  Also, I wasn't the biggest fan of the taste of the frosting on the inside, I mean I have a sweet tooth so I liked it and ate it but these are a little lighter but still a great cake pop taste.

Anywho, after collecting and being inspired by so many 4th of July desserts on Pinterest ... in the end I was just too excited to make cake pops so that's what I made!  Turned out pretty cute too if you ask me :)  Still working on my technique for getting the chocolate super smooth but all in all not as hard as the original pops.  

Patriotic Shirts!

Now that I have a Silhouette (machine that cuts everything), I am enjoying making fabric appliqued items because it is now super easy.  I decided that this year for the 4th of July I would make Mason's shirt.  I came across some festive fabric at Hobby Lobby and these shirts were born!  Fun.  Creative.  Easy. Cheap!
