Paper crafts meet Cake Pops!
Happy Saturday. This is a very exciting day for the gals in our family, as we are going out tonight for my niece Kaitlan's staggette. We all have our ugliest sweaters, and after a pot luck supper, taking the bus to Cowboys...a great bar in London.
There is a bit of a competition for creating the best costume, and making fabulous food, so we decided to try something new: Cake pops. Check out Bakerella for videos and tons of ideas. They really are very easy. Bake a cake in a 9x13 pan, as directed. Once it has cooled slightly, crumble into a big bowl and add a can of icing. Mix, roll in balls, then dip in your chocolate covering. For our pops, we made them into peacocks. Kaitlan and Gerrit love peacocks, so we thought it appropriate to make a little treat with that in mind.
All I did was punch out a large scallop circle, score and cut them out. I punched some mini dots, layered them on, and there you have it.
We also made some reindeer pops as well!
I am post dating this post, so no one gets a sneak peak of our creations!!! If you are my friend on facebook, watch tomorrow...I will post all the pictures of our fun night out!
