Funny little story from last night.... We had some great friends over for dinner and while we were chatting my girlfriend Katie (who is basically my cake ball spokesperson) asked if I happened to have a couple of cake balls already made because her manager has been dying to try them. I said, sure I can make a couple of cake balls...but I don't have a box for two cake balls. What would we package them in???
The wheels start turning...........I have JUST the thing!!!
I once saw someone package lollipops similar to this design so I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I go outside to the garage and grab my random spare piece of 2 by 4 wood (I might be a hoarder), ask Brian to saw off a small piece for me, sand the wood, paint the wood, cover the wood with pretty paper (all while Katie is telling me "all I want is two cake balls!"), modgepodge it, drill two holes in the wood and stick on some letters to spell "Enjoy". (all this as I'm trying to carry on a conversation w/ my guests, entertain the babies and get dinner ready to be served). I seem to seek chaos!!
Gordons, if you're reading this I promise, the next time y'all come over I will not have restless baker/crafter's syndrome!!! I will sit down with you (without my drill) and relax with a beer. (just don't get my wheels turning!!!!!)
Its cute though huh?!
