Mello out, idea # 1

I love Bakerella. Could you imagine what a glorious day it would be to sit in her kitchen and eat her beautiful treats. Heaven! Her cake pops are absolutely darling. However, they can be a little tricky to make.(click here to see my attempt.) I didn't think most Dad's would want to attempt making these with their children. So....
I made a marshmallow version. I used: 5 strawberry marshmallows, 1/4 melted white chocolate with a drop of red food coloring, over sized smarties (you can use bottle caps(walmart 97 cents)or candy corn)for the petals, lrg. yellow round sprinkles or 5 m&m for the center and Popsicle sticks. Push marshmallow onto stick and dip the top into the melted chocolate. Then place your petals around the outer 1/4" of the top of the marshmallow. Fill in center with sprinkles, an m&m or even mini chocolate chips.
I wrapped them in pink tissue paper. Although, they don't need to be wrapped. You can also use a pot with floral foam.

My kids just ate these. My picky 5 year old said "these are the best treats ever!".
More idea's to come.

Honestly, YOU can DO it!! I am exactly what you described. For me, I have to have specific goals. Specific deadlines, and stuff. Otherwise, I just give up. I get slack, then I just throw in the towel. You should try this though. We can keep each other accountable. :)
