Birthday Planning

Eric will be turning 4 this year. His birthday is 2.5 months away. I'm starting to plan his party and food.

About two days ago, I asked what he wanted to do for his party. He wants to go to the bounce house place, have a Spiderman cake, and pizza.

Dude knows what he wants.

I occasionally check out Bakerella, but usually don't make anything. But I have this crazy idea to try making Spiderman cake pops. Can't you see them now? Little Spiderman heads on sticks?

I wonder how they would turn out?

I started out playing around with beef and red chile sauce, then chicken and pork, once I even used elk meat. Then I changed up the sauce from red to green, and I have even changed out the tortillas, corn for flour. Then I changed back and forth. Added something, took it out the next time. My recipes are always changing to accommodate something that catches our attention.

Ingredients
2 cups shredded pork from the Hawaiian Pork Roast
8 flour tortillas, medium size
1 14 oz. can green chile enchilada sauce, …
