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!
