Foodie Friday- Cake Pops!!

How fun and cute are these?! I loveeee making cake pops, and have officially  crowned myself the cake-pop-queen of the family (I swear my ego is only slightly bloated) 🙂 I am often asked to make my cake pops for the events in our families, which is why I have deemed myself so!

When I first started making them I used one of those “Cake Pop Pans”…now, STOP right there! DO NOT go out and buy yourself one of these! My cake pops were huge, although uniform in size, and often quite dry…because you are restricted with the pan as far as how much batter to put in each mold I found it just wasn’t meeting my standards. So I set off on making them by hand! Sounds daunting right?? WRONG! The hardest part about making the cake pops is picking what colour chocolate you want to coat them in, I promise!

The best thing too is that you can use a boxed cake mix and store bought icing, so really all you have to do is cook em and decorate! EASY! You can get super creative with them too, if you want, or keep them simple like I tend to. On one occasion I made Toy Story themed cake pops for my nephews 5th birthday, and although super difficult to do, the look on his face was more than worth it!

I will suggest to you, if you will be making them often, to invest in a nice cake pop stand…I started out using floral foam and covering it in wrapping paper to match the occasion, but let me tell you that stuff aint cheap! My cake pop stand was around $10 and is super cute (as you’ll see in the post).

Well, happy baking! I hope you enjoy, and let me know if you make them for your next event ❤

Party Time!

With it being such a gloomy day today, I thought I would reach back in my vault of crafts a little bit and share with ya’ll how to make a fabulous Birthday Number out of paint chips!

This was a task I had taken on for my nieces 2nd birthday back in October, telling my sister in law I wanted to make a special number for her cake and goodie table. The theme was Bubble Guppies so I went with nice hues of blue for the ocean effect…I think it turned out GREAT! And do you want to know the best part? You only need to buy one thing…yup ONE! Take a look at the page and get started on your very own number (or word, or design…) for your next event!

Everybody needs a little more creativity in their lives ❤ Enjoy!
