{Hydrangeas-The first sign of Spring}

This week, we had our first taste of Spring in New York and my-o-my how wonderful it was!  After I posted about the red velvet cake pops (per this post), people have been asking me to make them for birthdays, gifts, and parties.  I decided that I wanted to make more creative cake pops so I bought the Cake Pops book by Bakerella.  I read it cover-to-cover in one day and made the mini cupcake pops for a little girl’s birthday (post to come Monday).  A lot of my girlfriends have big birthdays this month so I decided to make them all hand made birthday cards instead of sending them an email, a text, or an ecard.  Don’t you remember snail mail?  I’m really going to try to slow down this weekend to sleep in a little and take lazy strolls throughout the city.  These are the things that I’ve been lovin’ this week.
