Every Christmas since I can remember my Aunt Jody has done some sort of decorating project with my sister and I (check out last year’s), and they ALWAYS resemble something I expect Martha Stewart to create!

She even kind of looks like her with great hair and the most festive little apron and oh my you should see her house around the holidays! Beautiful!!

Cake balls are all the rage this year so it didn’t surprise me to learn she had perfected the art of cake ball making and we would be too! This is the book she learned from.

And this is what we were going to make, Santa Hats (and Christmas Trees, not pictured) Who wouldn’t love chocolate cake mixed with chocolate frosting covered with colored chocolate frosting, sprinkled with sugar and topped with a gum ball?

Her table full of supplies.


With a lot of patience and careful steady hands, this chocolate cake mixed with chocolate frosting becomes. . .


Colorful Christmas Trees and,


Scrumptious Santa hats!


I love how creative my Aunt is and how she encourages that creativity in us.  Who is your “Martha Stewart” and how does that person encourage creativity in your life?

Thanks for another beautiful holiday experience Aunt Jody!!
