Highlight of the Holidays!!!

One BIG highlight over the holidays was that I won the BEST TASTING contest and BEST PRESENTATION award at the office Christmas party. This can get pretty competitive. A lot of people enter the best tasting contest, but not many enter best I knew I had a shot.
Everyone in the office loves my cake balls...they are always a crowd pleaser, and I've probably emailed the recipe out at least 20 times. It's just so easy! SO....for best presentation, I decided to try and do Bakerella's Christmas Cake Pops! I was a little nervous about the assembly. A few people thought I was crazy and in over my head. (ie. GlamandFab) But with the help of a crafty neighbor...and with Chops being out of town (so no one to comment on the messy kitchen)...I knew we could take on this challenge!
And....I think we did a PRETTY GOOD JOB!!! It wasn't even that hard!
The display!

Christmas Trees! (notice prenatal vitamins in background! haha)

Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer in the front!

Santa Hats!

Unfortunately, I didn't get too many pictures of my competition. BUT...the both prizes were gift certificates to Central Market. YUM!!! Anyone up for a cooking class?


  1. nice work. i've had those cake pops...amazing.

  2. I'm in for the cooking class, just let me know when!

  3. So cute!!! I love the cake balls recipe... I renamed them cake bombs :) and have given out the recipe to a bunch of people too!
