The world is chock full of stupid and/or nonsensical aphorisms and proverbs floating around. For instance - "boys will be boys" or "you can't judge a book by its cover." What does it even mean that "boys will be boys?" I have no idea! And yes, while it isn't everything, you can indeed judge a book by its cover! It usually tells you the author and the publisher - so there is some important information right there! Do you like the graphics/pictures/fonts used on the front? The book may actually appeal to you as well! But I digress.
I must, however, stand behind the good old nugget of wisdom "never say never."
A few years ago, when cake pops were EVERYWHERE, I took an anti-cake pop stance. I told myself that I would never ever let these spheres of cake make their way into my home.
I don't actually know why I was so vehemently anti-cake-pop. Perhaps they were just too fussy for my tastes, involving a surgical level of precision that I do not possess. Or maybe they were, quite frankly, just too small of a serving size. Maybe I harbor anti-stick sentiments as well. Who knows! But the feelings were strong, a knee-jerk reaction to their omnipresence.
So of course, I am now the proud(??) owner of a cake pop maker and cake pop stand! What changed? Max found out about them! And I didn't have a good reason to say no to them. Telling a four year old that "cake pops are just too trendy, small and fussy" doesn't really register as a great argument. So here we are getting ready to break out the cake pop machine for the upcoming kiddo birthdays. And I might even be looking forward to eating them.
