Hi Ladies, stopping in this morning to say a few things. One, Thank you so much for stopping by to comment on the For the Kiddos Blog Hop yesterday. Weren't all the ladies in the hop so very talented. Laura Cline of Making Things Pretty organized the hop and did a great job. She has informed us that for blog candy that Crafty Moms Stamps is offerering a stamp set for hopping along and commenting. A stamp set of your choice. So isn't that a really nice treat.??. I am offering blog candy and will be doing the drawing at weeks end as I am featuring Elmo all week long because that was my sons birthday them when he turned one and is turning ten this Sunday. So to be clear I made cookie pops yesterday that in the picture look quite small but they are not. They are huge and in the picture at the bottom of the post you can see the COOKIE POP Wilton pan I used. It is a 3 inch cookie but ours turned out to be a good 4-5 inches or bigger. I put way too much dough in the form. So about half full will do if you are going to be making the cookies. Do not fill the form to the rim but if you do want hearty cookies like those then feel free to fill it up. I myself would have used a biger stick such as a popsicle stick. With that said when making cookie pops the stick can ruin the integrity of the cookie. So although they held up fine, you have to be really careful and not mess with the cookie stick at all and try not to handle the stick when decorating the cookie. 3. Some people asked what tip I used. it was the grass-hair tip from Wilton. and finally I am making cake pops too this week and that is what I will be offerering as blog candy. The actual ingredients to make the cake pops. Decorations and all. So the popsticks,candy melts in red and the facial decorations ect along with the recipe for making cake pops and technique for making Elmos fur. I think The hop went great and again thanks s to Laura Cline for organizing it although she had so much on her plate ,she did a wonderful job organizing the whole thing Would love to hop with her again. Oh yeah one more thing. If I reach my goal of 220 plus followers this week Elmo's Party cart up for grabs. Havea great day and come back later and check out my Elmo project for the day.
