Eating Cake (Baby Shower)

Of course we couldnt forge the cake eating!!

Baby Shower for Jess

Ok I know I am way late with baby shower pictures. I just havent had the opportunity to get them up until now.
Jess has hers up HERE
You will have to excuse my crappy camera, it takes blurry pictures at a distance. One of these days Ill get a new one haha.

The shower turned out nice and we had a decent turn out.

Stacey got the cake

Great Grandma Darlene made the center piece and provided the punch

Jess and I spent 2 and half days making 3 batches of cake balls

Jessica's throne area. It filled up quite nicely.

Belly Divine

Ahhhh the divine twin belly

These are 31 week pictures

This is one of Jess's favorite shirts but she says it will be the last time she will wear it for awhile. Her pants roll down under her belly and there's a draft.

Welcome to the club Jess!

Cake balls...first attempt

Cruising on the net one day I came across this very interesting recipe that seemed simple and sounded yummy.
Cake balls!

I read the recipe through pretty quickly and figure I could do that.

You need
1 Box of cake mix (any flavor)
1 Container of frosting (any flavor)
Almond bark or similar candy coating
Wax paper

So go ahead and mix up the cake mix as usual pop it in the oven and bake it up.

Mmmmmm chocolate frosting......

Put the cake in a bowl and break it up then let cool thoroughly

When cooled mash it and add the frosting mixing it all the way through

Roll into balls then chill for about 3 hours in the fridge or over night as some prefer

When you are ready melt the chocolate bark

Here's the part I missed...the toothpicks.
Take a toothpick and stab the cake ball so that you can dip it into the melted chocolate without hassle and use a second toothpick to help slide off the cake.

Dingbat me didnt re-read the recipe and I ended up dipping the bottoms then pouring over the tops.
Its tasted just as good though

Here is the link to where I found the recipe
All Recipes
There are many different variations of making these and they have pictures, yummy pictures!

I am going to give it another shot in a couple days because Jess really would like these for her baby shower so I will keep trying until I get it right. In the meantime...yum.
