my sweet momma's surprise!

Every year my momma goes to the mountains with her husband for her birthday. This year, I thought it would be fun to rent a cabin, get there before she does, decorate and SURPRISE HER! And she was surprised! She just stood there and cried and couldn't move!
This is what she saw when she walked in...

I wanted to make her a cake for her birthday but I wasn't sure how well it would travel 10 hours in a car. So I decided to make her Raspberry Pound Cake Balls dipped in Chocolate. Sounds good, right? Um, not really. I am not really sure where I went wrong, but it had something to do with the raspberry extract. I made the pound cake recipe that I made for my birthday but substitute the lemon extract for raspberry extract. As I was making it, I kept tasting it and it never tasted "raspberry-y" enough so I kept adding and adding and adding. I even added some to the chocolate and glaze that I dipped them in. They ended up not tasting "raspberry-y" but not good either. My sweet momma didn't think I noticed when she SECRETLY put the other half of one down the disposal! hahahahaha!!!
But they were pretty and sometimes it's the thought that counts! See how pretty?

I can't believe I forgot to post this too! This is a puzzle I designed for my mom and she had no idea what it looked like until we put it together!
