Let Them Eat Cake… Pops!

Remember the scene in the movie Patch Adams where the sweet old lady confesses that her life-long fantasy would be to wade in an entire swimming pool full of noodles? Well, my version of that fantasy involves cake frosting. It’s my one vice. I can take or leave cookies, candy, even chocolate….. but cake frosting? Not on your life. And what’s up with the people who eat just the cake and abandon their frosting. Are you mad?! If you see me clearing the dishes at the next birthday party or shower, chances are I’m actually plundering all of your plates of left over frosting. Don’t judge me. You can have your fantasies and I can have mine.

Like I said, I am making preparations for a very special birthday coming up. No, not my own. The only thing I care to do for my thirty-first {ugh 31….. so unsexy} is watch Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. {Well, that and eat cake frosting}. I know… I know… isn’t it time I acted like a grown up? No, my sweet Amelia is turning 1 on August 5th and I am planning a tea brunch for the ladies! First things first of course…. the cake!

I’ve been seeing these cute little treats everywhere lately and now thanks to Bakerella, I can make them myself.

Check out these tea pot cake pops. How perfect is this!

    I love the owls and robots, but they’re all cute. I am not an icing person. There are a few select kinds that I like but overall I’m not a fan. I’d rather just have the cake.

    I love these! I made them in February and had icing and cake everywhere; my kitchen and body were covered in icing and cake, and I only had 3 pops to show for it. They are much harder than you think. However, I learned some helpful tricks that I will be glad to share for the next time I see you! Good luck!!!

    I made gluten-free red velvet cake balls for our Kentucky Derby party in May….they were surprisingly easy & had a HUGE WOW factor! Can’t wait to hear how they turn out!
