Birthday Cake Weecakie Cake Pops
Happy Birthday to You! A dear friend called me a few weeks ago from Katy, Texas. She told me Weecakies were the only thing her hubby craved for his birthday.
Ah, shucks. How could I deny her true love of his only request? The only problem is that I live 1181 miles from there. Hmmmmmmm. Well, making the Weecakies was no problem. These are double deep chocolate (But they could be any flavor of your choice), dipped in milk chocolate, topped with a birthday candle, sprinkles and a white chocolate border. That was actually the easy part. The hard part was packing them up in a mailing box along with cold gel packs and then finding an overnight delivery rate that didn't cost a zillion dollars. (Well, I exaggerated the zillion dollars part). Thanks to USPS I was able to ship to Katy for less than $40.00. I just sent them off today, and hopefully they will get there tomorrow afternoon. I am on pins and needles waiting for the good news.....Are they OK? :) Did they melt? :( Were they cracked and gross? :( or are they perfect? :) Only time will tell....I will keep you posted. In the meantime, Happy Weecakie Birthday!
P.P.S. Have you ever not done something because you feared dismal failure? I confess....I put off trying to ship Weecakies because I worried that they would melt and be a disaster, and then I would be embarrassed. But here's my advice to me (and to anyone else who might need advice): JUST DO IT. Whatever it is that is scaring you, just grit your teeth and do it. The Weecakies arrived in Katy, Texas with nary a problem. They were whole and perfect and yummy and...well, I could go on for a long time. What I have learned is that we can be our own worst enemy, or our own best friend and cheerleader. I choose the latter. The only thing we have to fear is fear itself. So be fearless. :)
