Going Dutch

When I got home from the hospital recently, I had a bunch of mail waiting for me. Bills, and junk mail, packages and email … lots of email. It’s always fun opening packages. Cardboard boxes with unknown delights inside. It’s like Christmas for me anytime of the year because I usually don’t remember what I ordered online until I open the box and look inside. Surprise. Surprise. And even more of a surprise when something comes along that I’m not expecting.

***** Interruption***** Before I continue… Thank you again for all your prayers. And to update you guys… my mom has passed the first part of the tests, but we both have a bit more to do. Doctor and surgeon consults, blood tests, MRIs, stress tests, ultrasounds, EKGs, etc. are all part of the process. So it will be at least a couple more weeks before we know for sure, for sure. Fingers crossed. In the meantime, dialysis isn’t the most fun, but I’m doing fine. No, I’m doing really good. I’ll be sure to update you when I know more. Okay, back to packages that come in the mail.

This cute little book was in one of them.

Looks familiar, huh.

But something is different. Something is a little bit off.

My Pirate Pops on the cover? Where are my chicks and snowmen?

And look inside…

Wait a minute. I don’t think I’m in Kansas anymore.

Nope. Not even in the U.S. That’s because if you can read this, you’re probably somewhere in the Netherlands. The Dutch must really like my cake pops because they wanted to publish it in their language, too. Awesomeness!

Lievelingshulpmiddelen – yikes – who says English is one of the hardest languages to learn. I think I’d have a little trouble with this one.

But, I know what this says. Basic Cake Balls Recipe.

Cakebolletjes. Cute.

And I think I can figure this one out.

Marsmannetjes.

Marshmallows?

Maybe?

IMG_6954

Nope. Martians.

IMG_6964

Kikkers?

IMG_6966

Well, kikkers are my cute little froggies.

IMG_6960

And lieveheersbeestjes…

IMG_6967

Well, lieveheersbeestjes are my lovely little ladybugs. Or maybe it just says ladybugs. I don’t really know for sure.

IMG_6968

Bruid & bruidgom… I think you can guess this one.

IMG_6952

And robots are spelled…

IMG_6951

Robots. Hey, I got one.

Ahhh… there are the chicks. They’re still in the book. They’re called Paaskuikentjes. The Paaskuikentjes are probably one of my most recreated cake pops. These are a real favorite. And with spring coming up, they’d be perfect. If you don’t have the book, don’t worry. You can read how to make them right here.

But if you’d like to go Dutch, I can help you out there, too. Here’s the Cake Pops Dutch version and of course the English version is still on Amazon.

And, drumroll please… Portuguese and Spanish versions are in the works right now. Yippee!

This was really exciting to finally see printed. I’ve been waiting and wondering how the cover would look in Dutch. I was glad to see Cake Pops translate as Cake Pops. I just wish I could hear someone read the text. That would be pretty cool, too.

Anyone know how to say SUPER AWESOME in Dutch? Or how about THANK YOU MY DUTCH FRIENDS. I HOPE YOU ENJOY IT!
