woah there are waaay too many things
going on this month for me.
my MIL turns 75 this Friday,
my hubby turns 50 in a few weeks,
my niece turns 17 next week,
there's father's day,
vacation coming up,
and not to mention 4th of july stuff i gotta get going on.
whew! i'm burned out before i even got started.
and speaking of burn out, here's a little something i made.
these crazy things have been on my mind for years now and i am just now getting to it.
reason being is that i was trying to find a way to shorten the process, and getting stressed out about the time it would take to make them, being it needed different colors and different sizes.
but i found a short cut and in the time i saved doing so to make these cake pops,
i made a grill for them.
so much for the extra time i saved.
oh well here goes:
use a food marker so your shish kabobs won't get poisoned with ink marker. lol
don't worry about coloring the skewers full black as the grill lines are never pure black anyway.
also you'll see the grill already has
a black bottom in the pics above.
that's cuz i made the bottom first from cardstock.
but here's how to cover the grill:
it's actually best to make your red and black patterns first before adding the skewers by using
the wreath as your pattern.
i didn't worry about the green color on the inside showing.
anyway, here's what ya get:
now we gotta get something to grill.
i got the pink and yellow frosted mini cupcakes from the grocery and smooshed one individually to make one cake pop.
then i started making the kabobs with 6 inch skewers.
then add detail with food markers.
ok so now that we got them cookin',
here comes my hubby cuz it seems it's the only time he is ever interested in cooking because it involves fire and danger and grilling seems to be a manly thing to do in many people's eyes for some reason...?!?!
so i might as well have him own it.
can't wait til these are done grilling!
i think in this case though i'll take my steak raw...?
