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!
