Baking Adventures

After a crazy week of midterms, what's better than baking and drinking with friends? Honestly, I can't think of many better things to relieve stress! My fellow mili gf down here and I have a standing Thursday night tradition of drinking wine, trying to bake yummy things together, and hang out.  It's fantastic and a great time to complain about school and long distance relationships.  This week we elected to make cake pops!  We didn't have the candy melts though, so we improvised with chocolate chips melted with a little milk.  Here was the inspiration:
From Pinterest.
And here was our process!  We made the cake, added the frosting and let it chill.  We then rolled it into balls and dipped it in the chocolate.  The chocolate was a little thick, so they needed some more milk.  Overall, they turned out amazing! They taste even better after they've been chilled overnight :)
Who doesn't love a wine called Menage a trois? It was delicious by the way!
Having too much fun shredding cake.
Cheesing together.
Finished products.
I think next week we are going to see if we want to make something else, possibly attempting a homemade dinner.  Thanks to pinterest for the inspiration.
