Cakepop Party

Saturday, November 3 at 3:00pm
Location: Baked by Yael 3000F Connecticut Ave NW (across from the National Zoo)
Cost: $37 pay via PayPal
Contact: Corrina Sowden at

The party will last 90 minutes and we will learn how to make cakepops, which look like lollipops but are made of a mixture of cake and frosting covered with chocolate. We will be able to take home everything we make. My personal goal is to make over 12 cakepops so it is cheaper than buying them from the bakery!

Baked by Yael is a woman-owned bakery located across from the National Zoo. Yael Krigman, the owner, is a self-proclaimed “recovering attorney.” She left big law in 2011 in order to persue her dream of baking for a living. Read more in the recent Washington Post article.

Family and friends are welcome!

There is limited space. However, if there is sufficient interest we can add an additional session the same day.

Happier?: The History of a Cultural Movement That Aspired to Transform America by Smith Professor Daniel Horowitz (2017) 320 pages

When a cultural movement that began to take shape in the mid-twentieth century erupted into mainstream American culture in the late 1990s, it brought to the fore the idea that it is as important to improve one’s own sense of pleasure as it is to manage depression and anxiety. Cultural historian Daniel Horowitz’s research reveals that this change happened in the context of key events. World War II, the Holocaust, post-war prosperity, the rise of counter-culture, the crises of the 1970s, the presidency of Ronald Reagan, and the prime ministerships of Margaret Thatcher and David Cameron provided the important context for the development of the field today known as positive psychology.
