A newlywed, new to running, and new professional. This blog isn't for those looking for amazing race stats or great photos. It's a place to keep me motivated and maybe help someone else decide to take the plunge and sign up for a race. Also includes a sprinkle of cupcakes, Disney princesses, tiaras, and cats.

Mmk so I'm linking up with Vintage Apple AND telling you the tragedy of my kitchen skills. Go link up here and show me whatcha found on Pintrest this week!
So if you have read any of my blog you have realized that I'm terrible in the kitchen. Both of this disasters are all pintrests fault! I decided to make cake balls the other night...
They are suppose to look like this...
Needless to say mine ended up the garbage can.
First of all I made them with white cake and chocolate frosting. I don't like white cake so I'm not sure why on earth I even had that in the cabinet. When I went to the put the sticks into the actual cake mixture, I opened the bag and dumped the sticks out. They are sticks, therefore they roll. And roll they did all over the kitchen. As I dipped them and tried to swirl them to make a nice smooth layer of chocolate, all I got was lumps. I can't even give these away, who would eat lumpy cake?!
After I dipped the damn things I then realized the shoe box lid I used as make shift Styrofoam wouldn't hold the completed cake pops up. Who has Styrofoam just laying around anyways... Alas a fail.
The night before I tried the cake pops, I wanted to make something that look relatively easy, Funfetti fudge.
You just mix a can of condensed milk with white chocolate. Okay but let me tell you this. The recipe says 4-6 cups of chocolate. For this girl who makes up her own measurements, I need something more exact from the actual recipe. Needless to say I ended up with too much milk and not enough chocolate, so while it takes lovely it's still sitting in the fridge because it didn't cut into nice little chunky squares (see picture above).
And with that I'll leave with a yummy image of Tim Tebow (Note* I have ALWAYS been a Denver fan)
