Who's ready for CHRISTMAS!!!

I am sooo excited for Christmas! It is my absolute favorite holiday ever! I love all the goodies that people make, including myself! I love making gifts for my family and friends and I just love the spirit of the holiday.
So, to get in the mood for Christmas...Here are some fun cake pops!!!!
How awesome are these??

Festive ornaments!

Reindeer and Santa's hat. The idea of Santa's hat came from Bakerella's website last year. You can see hers and other ideas at

Christmas trees and a cute lil snowman! Next time I make the trees, I need a bigger star on top! I have a few other ideas for some festive cake pops and they will be posted soon ;)

Can you tell me how to get.... to get to SESAME STREET!!!
For the second auction piece, I chose to go with a kid friendly theme, and what better theme to go with than Sesame Street?!?!?
Sesame Street celebrated their 40th anniversary this past week, so in honor of them, here are a few cake pop idols!

You've got Cookie Monster, Oscar the Grouch and Elmo!!!!!!
These three are my favorite out of the whole bunch! Especially Oscar!

The orange one is supposed to be Elmo's friend Zoe, but she just wasn't turning out the way I wanted her. :( And of course, what's Sesame Street without Big Bird??

Bert and Ernie, yeah, they didn't turn out as well either...but you get the point right?? lol.

The gangs all here!!!

Prairie Life Fitness Breast Cancer Awareness

Okay, so my next few posts are going to be about an event that I am donating cake pops for. Prairie Life Fitness center is hosting a breast cancer awareness event that includes a wine and cheese banquet and an auction. I was asked to make a few ideas for the auction involving my cake pops and I was also asked to donate 10 centerpieces of cake pops to the wine and cheese banquet. So, for auction ideas, I came up with a Thanksgiving basket since Thanksgiving is right around the corner.

Here you have Pilgrims!

And here are Native Americans!

And my version of the first Thanksgiving, complete with candy corns and Turkey and pumpkins :)


Oh my goodness! Have you ever seen an actual transformer? Those guys have pointed parts and crazy pieces all over! Thankfully, there is a Transformer shield that is pretty easy to do!

I had a request from 3 of my co-workers within days of each other, wanting to know if I've ever thought about doing Transformers. So I thought, why not? I looked up online to try and find the easiest one and came across a shield from the cover of the Transformers movie.
I used red velvet cake mix with cream cheese frosting and used chocolate chips for the pointed part on the top. They were a hit, with the exception of one 5 year old. His mom relayed the story to me the next day:
I asked her how the cake pops went over and she exclaimed how cool they were and how everyone loved them...all except her 5 year old son. So of course, I asked why? Did he not like the flavor or was he unsure of the cake/frosting on the inside. She said he absolutley refused to eat it b/c the red velvet on the inside looked like BRAINS! His words were: I am NOT eating their brains!
I have been waiting for that reaction from a kid! I have made the red velvet so many times for kid parties and I'm surprised it's taken this long to get that reaction! Classic! :)


I will say that these particular cake pops were very difficult for me! I know absolutley nothing at all about pokemon, but I never back down from a challenge without trying first ;)

A good friend of mine asked for Pokemon pops b/c her nephew's birthday theme was Pokemon. I of course said, sure, no problem! Then I sat back down and said, whoa, problem...I know NOTHING about these guys. So after much research and googling, I picked a few from the top 10 list, and of course you have to have Pikachu! I made these little guys out of Oreos and cream cheese b/c one of the nephews is highly allergic to egg products. These were such a neat little addition to their party and good for all to eat!

Gobble, Gobble, Gobble!

Yay for Turkey Pops! I think my favorite part of November and Thanksgiving is all the yummy desserts you can make! My office is planning a "Wine & Cheese" party, which means that everyone brings something, whether it be an appetizer, dessert, cheese or wine, so I thought these would be a perfect way to get everyone in the mood for the upcoming holiday!

I'd like to say that he was easy to make, but he was actually VERY time consuming. Will I do these again, OF COURSE! ;) So worth it! His body is a red velvet cake ball covered in chocolate candy melt. His head is half of a chocolate crisp ball w/white baby sprinks for his eyes, a yellow mini chip for his beak and an upside down heart sprink for his waddle. His feet are orange flower sprinks. Bakerella used pretzels on hers, but I like the look of a fat birdie w/tiny legs lol. And of course, his feathers are candy corns!

This is looking down on the top of the basket of pops I made for the get-together. I did about 15 turkeys, a few candy corn pops, a few plain pops but candy corn colors and a few brown pops with leaf sprinks. I can't wait until they see these at the party!

Here Kitty, Kitty, Kitty...

Recently I was contacted to do Hello Kitty and Monsters Inc pops for the daughter of one of my agents. I got super excited! I've wanted to do a Hello Kitty ever since I first saw it on Bakerella's website (
The agent asked me to make red velvet w/cream cheese frosting. I attached 2 chocolate chips to the top of the cake ball and then dipped the whole thing in white candy melt. For the bow, I used 2 red heart shaped sprinkles and a red mini chocolate chip, and for her nose, a yellow mini choc. chip. For her eyes and wiskers, some people use the edible pens, but they don't seem to work for me, so I used black candy melt and it looks better to me actually. :) So cute, and so fun!

Coming soon....

It is officially November...where did the time go???????

Some of the orders I have coming up are: Hello Kitty, Pokemon, possibly Transformer shields and then pops for Breast Cancer Awareness towards the end of the month. Also thrown in the mix, I want to do some Turkey pops! Also, be looking for Pumpkin Pie pops to show up on here as well as many other things related to the Thanksgiving holiday!

Candy Corn anyone?

A few weeks ago I did the Monster Inc pops for a friend of mine. Well, one of her friends at the party liked them so much, she contacted me for her own daughter's birthday party.
The theme? Candy Corn! How cute is that? She was doing little gift baskets for each child to take home that was based around Candy Corns, so I did white cake/vanilla frosting plain pops in the colors of candy corn w/candy corn colors for sprinkles on top.

And because I wanted to try it out, I thought it would be cute to make a candy corn pop for the birthday girl as well!

It turned out exactly how I wanted it! I received an email from the mom today letting me know that everyone LOVED them. :) That always makes me so happy to hear if people enjoyed them!
So remember that, lol! If you order from me, send me either pics or reports of people enjoying them and I will post them on here for all to see!

Boss' Day

For Boss' Day this year, the Secretary from my old Elementary school, contacted me to see if I could do some cute pops for the Principal. She thought maybe something with A, B, C and 1, 2, 3 would be cute. So I thought long and hard about it and was originally going to do like wooden blocks, but then I thought, when I think of teachers, I think of Apples!

I shaped the cake pops into a round apple shape, my mom helped me out by shaping tootsie rolls into stems and then she, myself and my cousin Denae dipped them into red candy melt, attached the stem and then when they dried, i wrote the A,B,C's and 1,2,3's on them. On a few of them I also put this cute little worm and made it look like it was coming out of the apple!
They were a hit!

Halloween/Disney Bucket

One of my Sorority Sisters had contacted me back in October about doing a cute little bucket for a friend of hers that was coming to visit. She decided she wanted some of them to be Halloween, and the rest of them to be Disney characters.

I have not done that many Disney characters, but I don't think they turned out that bad...
Minnie and her bow were a bit of a challenge. I used tootsie rolls, smashed out flat in circles for her and Mickey's ears, and then I used left over candy melt on a piece of wax paper to shape her bow.

I think in the future I will have to use something a bit stiffer for the ears because they kept wanting to lean or tip over. But I think Mickey turned out pretty cute!

All in all, there were 2 pumpkins, 2 ghosts, a mummy, a tombstone, and Frankie, shown below. And for Disney characters there were Mickey and Minnie, Mike and Sully from Monsters Inc, and Nemo.

Sorry some of the pics are pretty blurry, not sure why my camera has been acting up lately...might be time to get a new one, eh?
