Yes, I got ambitious and decided to go ALL OUT for my little one’s birthday. You know they only turn 1 and 3 once! Hehe! So I enlisted the help of my sisters and we went to work in the kitchen.
My yummy cake pops! Impressed???
They were easy to make and made such a fun colorful statement on the counter with our party theme! Basically you use a box cake mix, bake, let cool, crumble and add in a can of frosting, then roll and chill in the fridge. Then the fun part-decorating. Dip in chocolate and sprinkle with fun candies and coatings! You must try them at your next party!
Here’s a step by step cake pops recipe if you want to try them yourself.
Another thing that I have been having fun with is my Tamron Lens. I have loved having the opportunity to shoot with it. I was able to take some fun pictures of the party and I have really loved getting to know the lens. My hubby loves it too! Especially when we are outdoors as he can zoom in on nature and our kids. We get such great shots with every take. I highly recommend you check out Tamron if you are in the market for a new lens. You won’t be disappointed.
Check out this lens:
Tamron 18-270mm all-in-one zoom lens, the world’s lightest, smallest 15x zoom optimized for use on APS-C- DSLRs, continues the pursuit of the ideal all-in one zoom lens. Combining prior award-winning achievements with new engineering breakthroughs yielded the remarkable 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD (Piezo Drive). Special piezoelectric technology now delivers faster, quieter precision autofocusing. Tamron’s exclusive tri-axial VC (Vibration Compensation) image stabilization, featuring three pairs of driving coils and low-function ball bearings placed around the VC optical group, combats camera shake-related image blur. It’s Tamron VC that allows handheld shooting at as many as four shutter speeds slower than otherwise possible with a dramatically stable viewfinder experience. Compactness and light weight are preserved, thanks in part to the VC mechanism’s newly-developed moving coil mechanism.
Defining compositional freedom the 18-270mm Di-II VC’s incredible 15x zoom range provides a 35mm picture angle equivalency of 28mm to 419mm, with image fidelity assured by advanced optical design featuring LD glass and aspherical optics, working in concert to render crisp, colorful and faithful images.
