all my preparation paid off. julia’s birthday celeb in school was a hit! her classmates loved the lollicakes i brought. remember the issue i had with the school rules about bringing food. they reasoned that since students are just preps, simple finger food (read: cupcakes, sandwhiches, etc) are the ones they encourage parents to bring. i decided to treat julia’s classmates with a little unique something called cake pops or lollicakes.
in case your wondering, cake pops are the latest craze in the cupcake world. they are little cakes with a stick on it. they come in diffrent shapes, sizes, colors and flavors. like i mentioned in a previous post, i got my “cakes” from the lollicake factory. i first saw this featured in a tv show a few months ago. i did a little research about cake pops. my search led me to the factory, which, i found later, is owned by the actor lj moreno-alapag.
i ordered 40 pcs of cute, colorful, and tasty confection for the entire class to enjoy:). on julia’s birthday itself (july 11th), i went to the lollicake factory to pick-up my goodies. i was so excited to see how they looked and even more excited to fit them into the “cake” we made. but lo! there was some misunderstanding of some sort. i don’t know if its the weather, or the fact that i don’t want anything to ruin my day,or was i starstruck (lj was the one who attended to me!), i seem to be unfazed when i was informed about the minor glitch. good thing they got ironed out. hahahaha, guess what? as a bonus, lj herself brought the cakes to the house (yep! she drove all the way to marikina) and she gave me additional pops for good measure. the thing is, i was too SHY to ask her for a picture. hubby even did not believe my story. lol. but als! i have a witness… the village guard and yaya jo. they both saw lj pullover and hand me the cakes:) i remember even the guard say “ma’am yung bisita nyo…artista! si lj moreno po” (ma’am your visitor is a celebrity, it’s lj moreno!)
anyways, julia had a blast distributing her cake to everyone. we even made a special cake stand for it over the weekend. im so proud of kobe and julia for their creative ideas. two thumbs up for my handy helpers !
what a day it was. this will definitely be my top memories. fun, fun, fun!
happy birthday julia!
