Tuesdays Tips

Host a sweets exchange with friends this Christmas! This is a great way to add to your sweets collection, what is Christmas without a ton of cookies and other yummy treats? Here is how it works:

  • Each friend bakes 1/2 dozen sweets per person attending. If you have 10 people attending you need 5 dozen.
  • Wrap them up is 1/2 dozen to share, I love decorating cute little bags.
  • At the exchange bring a box or large bag and bring home your goodies!
  • We set some out in the cake stand and freeze the rest to pull out slowly over the next couple weeks.
  • Here are the cake balls I made. Not exactly perfectly round like the one's that bakerella makes.

My six to bring to the party. I got these cute little baskets for 50 cents. I put the cake balls in a plastic bag and tied curlies around the top.

Here are the some of the ladies in our neighborhood for our neighborhood Christmas sweets exchange. Carri and Kelly did a great job hosting this year. We had crafts and each of the sweets were laid out in different areas of her house. Great time!

Have you seen that infomercial that has a pan bottom and top with half spheres in both sides? It makes anything and everything into balls! Muffins/pancakes/cake/brownies..... anything:) Aiden loves that commercial. That would make your cake balls perfectly round! I'll look that up for you:)

Here it is:)
I thought it had a top. You just let it cook on one side and then using a tool you flip it over to cook on the other side and it makes a ball!
