Smiling Snowman Christmas Weecakies

Happy Winter!  Merry Christmas!  Do you like snow?  I do, especially if I don't have to drive in it.  I remember making igloos, ice-skating rinks, snow angels and all kinds of wonderful snowmen when I was a child.  One day, after a particularly heavy snowfall,all the kids in the neighborhood got together and we made a HUGE snowman.  He had to be at least 15 feet tall.  We lived where the backyards were all connected, thus there was loads of snow.  The base of the snowman had a tunnel through the middle, so he had giant bow-legs.  I remember struggling to get the torso of the snowman and the head on because the snowballs were so huge.  Somehow we did it thanks to some very strong brothers and friends.   It was a work of....well, lots of work.  I remember everyone cheering when we finally placed the carrot nose on it's face.  Ahhh, happy memories.  My Smiling Snowmen Christmas Weecakies remind me of the snowmen from my past.  The cake is deep chocolate, dipped in white chocolate and topped with a dark chocolate hat trimmed with a green chocolate holly sprig.  Each face is different and distinct because every one is made and decorated by hand.  They will melt in your mouth, and will truly melt your heart.  Hopefully, you will remember the snowmen from your past while you enjoy these Smiling Snowman Christmas Weecakies.  Happy Snow!

Christmas Holly Weecakies: The first of my Christmas Cake Pops

The Christmas season is finally upon us.
I love Christmas.  Most people are looking forward to parties, giving gifts, singing songs, sitting around a warm  cozy fire and enjoying special Christmas treats.  I have been patiently waiting for this jolly season so that I could make these happy Christmas Holly Weecakies.  Holly is an evergreen tree with wonderful glossy red berries.  Even though holly isn't supposed to grow here, I have a holly bush in my yard.  My sister gave me a small plant many years ago.  Today, it is about 10 feet tall, always green, and, this year, it even has berries!   It always makes me smile because it reminds me of my sister.  I just had to share my happy holly with you.  These Christmas Holly Weecakies are a delicious chocolate cake truffle, dipped in white chocolate, rolled in red, white and green sprinkles and topped with colored chocolate holly leaves and berries.  They are smooth and will melt in your mouth.  I promise you will love them too.  Make happy Christmas memories with Christmas Holly Weecakies.

There are more Christmas Weecakies to come so keep checking my blogspot over the next few days.  Did I tell you that I LOVE Christmas?

Final Thanksgiving Weecakies

When I was young my parents always took us for a long car ride in the Fall to see the changing colors of leaves.  I love red and gold and orange leaves and acorns.  I am so lucky to live where there is an abundance of colorful leaves in the Fall.  I used to collect acorn caps to use as cups in a woodland-tea-party setting with my dolls.  So, on a apple-spice cake square, I have recreated Autumn leaves and acorns.  The cake is dipped in white chocolate and the leaves and acorns are molded in colored chocolate clay.  These are pretty small in real life-it all sits on top of a sucker stick.  Beautiful colored leaves and melt-in-your-mouth apple-spice cake truffle.  What more could you ask for?  Yummy!

-Thought you might like to see some more Twig Weecakies.  These are raspberry swirl cake, and the twigs go over the side of the cake square-just some variations of the earlier post.

Just for Fun: Turkey Weecakies

What would Thanksgiving be without Turkey?  When I saw Bakerella's Turkey Cake Pops last year, I knew that I would have to do them. 
This is Bakerella's design with some modifications.  The cake inside is chocolate, dipped in milk chocolate and decorated with candy corn-I couldn't find the "Harvest Color" candy corn, so I used what was available.  The head of the turkey is a ball of chocolate clay, as is the beak.  The turkey's snood (did you know that thing (according to WikiAnswers) is called a snood?  I always thought is was a wattle.  But wait...Yahoo Answers! says that it is a wattle and only appears on male turkeys.  We could have a great debate on whether it is a snood or a wattle or something else.  Well, anyway back to the description.....)
is an upside-down large heart sprinkle and his eyes are dots of dark chocolate.  These are fun and full of personality.   Gobble Gobble Gobble.  Have a Happy Turkey Day!

Thanksgiving Berry and Twig Weecakies

The second of my Thanksgiving offerings are Berry and Twig Weecakies.  When the leaves fall and swirl away, we are left with all sorts of berries and crabapples on our  trees and bushes.  I have little yellow crabapples on one of my trees, and tiny green-brown pears on my flowering pear tree.  Autumn brings about another change.  We can see that nature tries to feed all, making available and more visible these delicacies for birds and other wildlife.  There is beauty in the almost leafless branches, laden with fruits for hungry foragers.  The Autumn Lemon Twig Weecakies are made with lemon cake, dipped in yellow colored white chocolate, drizzled with white chocolate and decorated with colored chocolate.  The Autumn Twig Raspberry Weecakies are raspberry swirl cake (from carriescakes.com) dipped in white chocolate and decorated with colored chocolate.  Yummy fruit Weecakies, and the warmth of the Thanksgiving Season.  Celebrate your days with Thanksgiving Berry and Twig Weecakies.

Pumpkin Weecakies: The First of my Thanksgiving cake pops

Pumpkins are a very versitle vegetable.  We enjoy the trailing vines and huge leaves winding their way throughout our gardens.  We savor the mellow flesh in spicy pies, cakes, cookies and breads.  Our family especially likes the seeds salted and roasted in the oven for crunchy snacks.  Pumpkins have been the center of folk-lore, from Cinderella's fairy-carriage and Peter Peter's wife's domain to the frightening firey head tossed at the terrified Ichabod Crane.  Pumpkin Weecakies, however, are uniquely different.  They each have a yummy, mellow truffle center of either pumpkin-chocolate chip cake or apple spice cake.  Each Weecakie is hand-formed into a pumpkin shape-some are long and skinny, some are pear-shaped, some are traditionally round, and some are just weird.  All are dipped in pumpkin-colored white Callebaut chocolate and topped with a colored chocolate stem.  They are perfect for all your Autumnal Celebrations.  These are not ordinary cake pops.  Pumpkin Weecakies are a fantastic taste treat that everyone will love-especially if your name is Peter, or Cinderella, or Prince Charming, or....YOU!

 Happy Celebrations!

Eerie Eye Weecakies

My oldest daughter spent the day with me and we had a great time laughing and talking and playing in chocolate.  She works for a group of opthalmologists and optometrists.  We fashioned eyes-blue, brown and green bloodshot eyes-to be exact- out of cake and chocolate to share with her fellow workers at the medical office.  The eyes are red velvet cake dipped in white chocolate with colored chocolate irises and black chocolate pupils.  As she painted the red streaks on the eyes, my daughter described the various eye conditions-eeeewww and yuck!  We had a grand time creating eyes.  So for all your goulish Halloween celebrations, Weecakies presents Eerie Eye Weecakies.  They are yummy and creepy at the same time.  Here's looking at you, kid, with Eerie Eye Weecakies.  Have a happy Halloween :)

Scary Mummy Weecakies

Are you worried about your Halloween treats? As you can see, my Scary Mummy Weecakies seem a bit uneasy. (Maybe they just don't want their picture taken.) They were fun to make. I tried a few different variations for the mummy wrappings, and came up with this one. The shape of the head can vary, and the placement of the eyes gives each one it's own personality. Each Scary Mummy Weecakie is hand-shaped chocolate cake, dipped in white chocolate, decorated with colored chocolate eyes and wrapped with white chocolate strips. They are wonderfully delectible to eat. My granddaughter had a great time pealing away each wrapping strip and popping them into her mouth. Break away from traditional Halloween treats and get some Scary Mummy Weecakies.  (fantastically different cake pops)  They are sure to impart mounds of snickers, bring all mends joy, and send everyone to the milky way.  Have a Scary Mummy Halloween :)

Peaches Weecakies

It is Fall here.  Fall brings cooler weather, changing colors, ripening fruit, and, best of all, my youngest daughter's birthday.  My baby just turned 20.  I no longer have a teenager in my home.  The September she was born followed a very hot, dry and uncomfortable summer.  It was wonderful to have such a pretty, pink and healthy baby in my arms.  Then, a day or so later, she started turning yellow.....nothing really serious, just a bout of jauntice that was solved by her sleeping under special UV lights.  Anyway, her color reminded me of peaches, so I started calling her Peaches.  I called her Peaches for a long time.  I don't remember when I stopped, but I do remember that she seemed annoyed by the name sometime before the age of 10.  Sometimes, now,  I slip and call her Peaches.  She looks up with her large, brown Bambi eyes through her long dark eyelashes, and I remember my beautiful peach baby from that September, 20 years ago.  For my fabulous baby daughter, I present Peaches Weecakies:  peach cake made with fresh peaches from my garden, dipped in peach-colored white chocolate.  Some are actually peach-shaped, with the leaves and a small chocolate twig on top.  The others are more formal petit-fours, dipped in colored white chocolate and drizzled with white chocolate, topped with a peach colored flower.  Celebrate peaches and the end of summer with sweet Peaches Weecakies.

P.S.  Have a very happy and fulfilling year my dear Peaches.  I love you

Sunflower Weecakies

Summer is almost gone, but the sunflowers still hang on  They grow anywhere their seeds fall.  They are tough and resilient, yet they are cheery and bright.  I have sunflowers springing up in my yard where I know for a fact they were not planted.  Their faces are so happy-and who wouldn't be when you take in the fact that sunflowers actually follow the sun as the world rotates around it.  Center on the sun, the warmth and the light and you will always be happy.  My Sunflower Weecakies are made using fabulous raspberry swirl cake from Carries Cakes (big news to follow), dipped in milk chocolate and decorated with a sunny flower cut from yellow chocolate.  Oh, the ladybug...(Thanks to Hello Cupcake for the idea-It is a wonderful idea-cookbook) made from a mimi M&M, details drawn with an edible marker and the head a dot of dark chocolate.  Dark green leaves back up each flower.  Ladybugs, Happy Sunflowers and Carries Cakes....mmmmmmm.......yummy!

As you can see, these are not your ordinary cake balls. The Bride is a rich almond heart cake, dipped in white chocolate, sprinkled with white dots and decorated with a rolled pink chocolate rose. The Groom is decadent chocolate hazelnut cake, dipped in dark chocolate and then topped with a white chocolate shirt, a dark chocolate tie and buttons. Wouldn't a bouquet of Brides and Grooms be a wonderful gift for your sweeheart? Wow! I promise it would get you a big KISS, and that would be wonderful :) !  Have a Happy Day!

Is a Bouquet OK for Father's Day?

Does your Dad like bouquets? Maybe he's never received one. Wouldn't he like a peanut butter, triple chocolate and chocolate hazelnut Weecakie bouquet? We could even add a mint chocolate Weecakie to the mix. Get your Father a bouquet that he will enjoy in more ways than one. It's fun to look at, and even more fun to eat (and he won't have to wear the ties). There are no flowers -your gift is totally masculine and full of melt-in-your-mouth taste. What could be better for the Best Dad around than a Father's Day Weecakie bouquet?

Weecakie Bow Ties

Do you realize that bow ties are actually two hearts tied together by a knot? Bow ties say "I love you-twice." Every man has worn a bow tie at least once in his lifetime, whether as a little boy with a clip-on, or as a man with a tuxedo for some festive occasion. These bow ties are a bit whimsical, but, admit it, they do make you smile. The cake is special hazelnut chocolate, dipped in milk chocolate and topped with a white chocolate shirt. I promise that your Dad will smile when he gets a Weecakie bow tie for Father's Day.

These ties are special Triple Chocolate Ties: chocolate cake dipped in milk chocolate, drizzled with dark chocolate and decorated with a hand-made chocolate tie. Everything melts in your mouth. I guarantee that Father will love these ties. Get your wonderful Dad some very special ties this year from Weecakies :)

Peanut Weecakies for Fathers

The first offering for Father's Day is this Peanut Weecakie. My hubby told me that I couldn't make a totally masculine Weecakie, but he admitted that this one takes the cake! The truffle is wonderfully decadent peanut butter cake, dipped in milk chocolate and rolled in chopped salted peanuts then topped with a peanut. Yummmmm. I love nuts. If your Dad likes peanuts, this is the one for him. It's fantastic, and it's really masculine!

Do you know someone who is graduating? Celebrate with some fun Weecakie Graduates! The truffle inside is either vanilla or chocolate cake (there's even a marbleized combination in a couple of them). The hats are a solid square of colored chocolate with a button of chocolate on top and an edible tassel. Graduate Weecakies can be made in almost any color combination. Whew! Graduating is a lot of work. Congratulations to all for your great work and achievements. (It looks as though some of these guys are out standing in a field) Celebrate with some Weecakie Graduates :)

Weecakie Flowers

The truth is I love flowers. I'm not an ultra-feminine flowery sort of person, but I love flowers. Most women would love a bouquet of fresh flowers, whether they come from a florist, the garden, or Weecakies, as long as the giver says "I love you." Might I suggest for MOTHER'S DAY this year, give your Mom a bouquet of Weecakie Flowers. They are sweet and refreshing and very unique. Your Mom will love you forever.

Your bouquet can be large or small. You could use a cup, a glass, a basket, or even a clay pot. Fill the container with Easter grass, or shredded paper, or even tissue paper all wrinkled up. Be creative and have fun. Your Mother will smile, and she will be happy because you remembered her. Happy Mother's Day :)

Coming Soon: Masculine Father's Day Weecakies (How's that for an oxymoron?) I need your help. What is your Dad's favorite flavor?
