The spring chicken experiment has been concluded, and I suppose you could say it was a success. We certainly gave it our best shot, but we are not--either of us--Bakerella. And our ingredients left a little something to be desired. Excuses, excuses, I know. That said, we had great fun making the little chicks and a few super-cute bunnies. And everyone I know that tried one thought they were delicious. But they're kind of labor intensive--hopefully part of that is our beginner status. I think I will definitely give these another shot.
So...some pictures. And yes, I know, I know, I need to figure out how to better use my camera. Or Photoshop. Or maybe I should get a new camera altogether.
Remember, we are comparing them to Bakerella's. (They don't even look close, do they?)
And my favorite pic was the one my cake-pop partner insisted we shoot--the posed, outside grass shot of the bunny. (Behind the scenes info: she rearranged grass blades for this photo, accidently plunged the stick through the poor little bunny's head, and knocked off a eyeball.) The two of us were laughing hysterically over a walnut-sized ball of cake jammed into the grass, and I was shaking so hard I obviously had trouble focusing. These are the scrapbook moments, people!
