God, it’s going to be hard to write this without making you jealous.

We got a cake pop machine from Kohls. God, they’re like Santa Claus. I don’t know why. We just woke up one morning and there was a cake pop machine. On a side note, I think it’s worth pointing out that I’ve been reading The Secret and have been spending most of my days shouting “bring me cake pops” to the universe (not really). You’ve had cake pops, right? They sell them at Starbucks. They’re little balls of cake entire submersed in icing. They’re the new cupcake.

But could we make them? Ourselves? Armed with only a cake pop machine sent by angel-people at Kohls? We’ll take you through the harrowing adventure step by step.
