Tonight I got to meet some great ladies at the HT-28 spouses squadron party!
For all you non-military people out there, there are three different helicopter training squadrons down here at NAS Whiting… and just like Beau was in VT-2 while he flew fixed wing earlier this year (the super cool T-34 that I got to drive! Check out my post on it here!), he’s now in HT-28.
So anyways, long story short, I decided it was time to meet some military spouses! I am desperate need of friends down here in good old Milton… don’t get me wrong – the hubs is awesome and the doggies are super cool – but some other human interaction would be nice too haha!
Whenever someone hosts a get-together, I always feel the need to bring a treat… a sweet one of course! So I decided to make cake pops!
Our lovely host Julie hosted a Margarita party so I thought I’d try my hand at making “Margarita Pops” complete with a melted candy lime and salt (aka sugar) around the top.
|I didn’t use sparkling sugar so it was too fine and blended in with the light
green colored melting chocolate. With the correct sugar (it’s coarser than
granulated sugar) it will make a nice statement on this pop!
I covered the rest of the pops in melted bittersweet chocolate. The perfect pair with the gluten free vanilla cake mix inside 🙂
The hubs suggested I place them in martini glasses to make them look extra cute. Excellent idea!
I left the party with empty martini glasses. Success!
Cheers to new friends!
