Happy Birthday, Dad!

My dad and I share a sweet tooth. When he started bemoaning the fact that he had to read all my facebook status updates about the delicious things I was baking without getting to taste them, I promised that I'd ship him some baked goods for his birthday.

I've never shipped food before, so I put a lot of thought into what I wanted to send. Cookies seem like the obvious choice. Simple. Not messy. Easy to transport.

But I wasn't really feeling it. It didn't seem special enough. Cookies aren't birthday-ish.

When I was a kid, we always had those snack cakes around the house. Little Debbie's, Drake's, Hostess. So I figured, why not mimic one of those? So I decided to make Ring Dings from scratch for my Dad's birthday.

It was a little complicated. Ok, a lot complicated. But I was up for the challenge.  Want to see?

Happy Birthday, Daddy! I love you!




    What am amazing gift!

  2. Hi Kelly! Scott Armstrong here. First, your Dad is lucky, the ring dings look amazing. Second, I want to chat a little publishing with you. I'd email, but I don't know your address. Drop me a line if you get a chance,
