  4. @Lisa - I would totally make you cake pops if you lived closer to me!! The little white balls are balls of bocconcini, which don't really have too much flavour. They remind me of cheese curds!

    @Dana - Thanks!! :)

    Firstly, from looking at your photos, it looks like you had a fab Christmas!!! And there's so much to comment that i don't even know where to start,lol.

    I love the gold ornaments on your tree, my tree ornaments was gold too!!! and boy, that's a lot of presents for gift exchange, you lucky girls;)

    As for the food, those candy cane macarons look delish!! I heard there's jasmine flavored macarons too,have you heard of it or seen it around? and what cute cake pops you made! i love the reindeer ones:) Strawberry crunch choco? Delish! I actually bought pumpkin cheesecake flavored kit kat bars when i went to singapore in nov 2011. Thats what i love about asia, they always have these out of the ordinary flavors for food!

    Your bf is sooo sweet! lovely tiffany necklace! i heart tiffany big times too, and i guess all girls do right?;)

  6. Cinz! Yes, I looove the gold ornaments on the tree cause it makes the tree look so glamorous! I haven't tried jasmine macarons yet, do they taste like the flower? I'll be heading over to Asia this summer & I'm so excited to stock up on all the different types of candy I can't get over here. I love trying all the different types! Thanks so much for your lovely comment - glad nothing happened this time when you posted!

  7. I love your cake pops! they are too cute. How do you manage to get the chocolate so smooth? I've made cake pops in the past but mine never turn out smooth, or my cake pops end up dropping into the melted chocolate! Any tips for another baker? :)

  8. Hey Vicky! For the chocolate, I would make sure that it's not too hot when you dip the cake in, and make sure your cake is not too cold! You want the temperatures of both components to be relatively close to get that smooth texture. It also helps to thin out the chocolate with some shortening to get a better consistency. Good luck with your future cake pops!


Thank you so much for stopping by! I would love to hear anything you have to say.
