Proof Positive of my Pinterest Problem

For years, I railed against the evils of Pinterest.

OK, so maybe not years, but I definitely put up some strong resistance to the lure of Pinterest for a long time.

But the time came when I finally gave up and gave in to the pinning world. I've set up my boards. I've made a few recipes. I steal ideas from others like they're going out of style. Isn't that what Pinterest is really all about?



So here's my proof to you that I have, in fact, not only started my own collection of boards but have also made real-life, edible products based on what I've seen on Pinterest. Here's a simple basketball cake.



Easy, huh? That's the beauty of it. It's the kind of idea that doesn't need a dozen steps or complicated ingredients. Just a round cake, frosting and a big bag of Reese's Pieces.



So who of you out there are on Pinterest? Who's still holding out resistance?

When you're ready to give in...

Chocolate frosting would blend nicer to fill in the gaps. Peanut butter filling would taste superb with this! Nicely done! I love this idea!!!!
