Autumn's Amazing Cake Pops

Autumn is whimsical by nature. She is go with the flow. She has always been that way. She really isn't interested in being busy or working the day away. She likes to relax and daydream. She likes to create and laugh. We sort of tease her about being "grabby." But she is just very "hand's on." She enjoys cooking and crafting. I told her I could see her being a party planner, or the next Martha Stewart, but with a sense of humor.

Tayler brought home a "Cake Pop" maker. Cake Pops are all the rage right now. They are basically cake and frosting rolled into balls and dipped in frosting then placed on lollipop sticks. But of course, Autumn put her own twist on it. She has spent the whole weekend creating these.

I have many weaknesses as a Mother. But I think one thing that I manage to do, is allow my kids to have room to create. I let them have free reign in that area. Other kids love coming over because I usually say "Yes, you may do that...just clean up."( I remember which kids actually do clean up, and they get to come over as often as they would like.)

I think the best part is hearing them crack up as they work. It's so cute. They are out there right now coming up with creative names for the store they are going to open up. They are going to make it big selling Cake Pops all over the world. You never know!


  1. Autumn, We need to have tea together, and of course you can bring the cake pops, they look fantastic!!! I always knew you were VERY creative, and this proves it. Keep up the good work.

    Love, Nancy, Ron, and Pepper the Pup

  2. I need to learn from you... I am SO quick to say "NO!" (mostly because the cleaning up part NEVER happens)

    I applaud you for giving her "that room" and for embracing the drum beat she cruises to!

  3. Yep, I see a business starting here :) Dream big sister :)

  4. Best Mom ever!! And the kids are the proof! Love you Michelle, you are amazingly awesome!

  5. Where did she find the maker?
