I was blessed to grow up with two of these heroes. My Dad, Michael Meek, who sacrificed time with his family and time for himself in the service of others and my Uncle, Richard W. Smith Jr., who sacrificed time with his family, time for himself and eventually his life in the service of others. Tomorrow is Uncle Ricky's birthday and he should celebrating with his family but his path altered when a mentally disturbed man broke from reality and my Uncle, along with his partner, took up the call to help him.
These HeroCakePops are dedicated to every man and woman who wakes up every day and leaves their family to try and keep the madness of the angry, cruel, hurtful and malicious from reaching us all. Thank you.
These HeroCakePops are dedicated to all the families sitting at home hoping the phone never rings...
Happy Birthday Uncle Ricky. I miss you. I love you.
|To start your hero pops you need to find the right mix of color.|
I used edible disco dust.
|The heart chocolate molds I bought where I buy|
almost all my baking supplies at : Candy Mold Central
I made the uniform following Bakerella's instructions for the
Groom on page 79 of Cake Pops. I just changed the black to blue
and added a long tie instead of a bow tie.
|The background is a pretty blue square paper I found in Michael's in the|
scrap booking section. It was on sale for 79 cents.
|The handcuff case is my Dad's first case he carried on his duty belt. |
He sent to me when I was required to carry handcuffs in my current job
along with his first pair handcuffs used on the job.
|Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called children of God.|
