Back to School with Apple Cake Pops

It's back to school week here in NY. I always make something special for her first day and her last day of school. A Mom I know is very sad about her daughter returning to school. It makes me feel guilty for being a touch happy about my daughters return to school. You see I am happy because it's the end of a summer doing stuff with my kids, running around, playing, etc. And now, this almost 44 year old girl is supremely ready for a little R and R. Not to mention it will be nice not to listen to "stop touching me" and "that's mine, not yours" and "Mom, she scratched me". So these are the reasons I am happy and I am not going to feel guilty about it, I am not going to feel guilty about it, I am not going to feel guilty about it. Oh, sorry, I was just repeating my mantra.

I saw apples on Bakerella some time ago and knew my kids had to have one. While you see Bakerella's are "practically perfect in every way", mine are not. But mine are the result of using up some cake scraps and frosting from the last challenge of DB. Next time I will follow her recipe. I used Fruit Roll Up- sour apple for the leaves. And melting chips for the chocolate outside.

Best wishes my little one for a wonderful school year.
And all the little people out there heading off to school.
May it be safe, pleasant and chock full of learning.

Those are adorable. & I say no reason to feel guilty, I'm sure a lot of other parents feel exactly the same way

How cute! I'm sure your children think you're the greatest mom ever. So make a pot of tea and put your feet up for the first hour they're gone.

I thought they looked perfect!

I'm certain our sitter was happy to see my children go back to school. LOL! Though she's home with them after school until I get there from work.

Yes, Bakerella is pretty creative and and her stuff looks amazing, but I have to say, you executed her apple pops perfectly! Remember, a little imperfection screams HOMEMADE, and those apple pops look delicious! Wish I had one right now!

That said, I have a little something for you at my blog. You can pick it up here...

haha...don't feel guilty, Lori. With the kind of stuff you bake all the time, I'd be happy if you were my mom - even if you were glad I was going back to school! ;)
