Another year has passed and along with that somehow I am also a year older!! Go figure! lol
Where oh where do the years go? I am constantly amazed at how fast time flies. When I was
young I couldn't wait to be 30 years old and now...I would still like be that age, but know
what I know now. :)

My youngest son and his family took me out to eat on my special day and also presented me
with a dozen pink lemonade cake balls.

They are just delicious and I had to share them with you. I wish you could taste them!
{ I have been hanging on to five of them just to take more photos. lol.}

My little granddaughters Annika and Ainsley both looked so beautiful  in their pretty dresses and
their tiny fingernails were all painted up with pink polish when I arrived at their house.  I was
really bummed that I forgot my camera and my phone camera doesn't take great quality photos,
but the memories will linger in my heart forever.  Annika informed me on the way to the
 restaurant that her daddy painted her nails...not her mommy! Love it!!

I thought I would taste this one for you and see what you think.
What is your verdict?? I know you love them as much as I do!  

I am going to try my hand at making some of these soon!! I found several recipes when I googled, but
they are all made basically alike and sound so messy easy! 
Can you guess how old I am??
Oh my goodness...notice the dust on the left hand side of the*five* ?? That is one thing that
close up photos do...they pick up every detail! lol.

My cake balls were presented in this container with pink tissue paper with the silver flowers on top.
  I was told that I don't get the rest of my gift until we go to my older son's house next weekend.
Annika whispered to her daddy about it and he told her they have to wait a few days.
 It sure is hard for little people to wait...and sometimes bigger people too! ha!

The photos are great. So this proves that it is the photographer NOT the camera that is the key. I guess I should stop looking for a new camera. lol

Happy Belated Birthday, your little cake balls look yummy. I agree with Vintage Farmhouse girl, Make cupcakes when ever you can. I didn't notice the dust until you pointed it out, what's a little dust among friends.

Wow! These look amazing! I pinned them to Pintetest, on my Valentines day board, and renamed them "bites" because anything thus beautiful deserves not to be called balls! :) Cecilia.
