A couple of weekends ago a couple of girls I know through Backwoods came to visit me. Shanon and I are regular camp goers and Kim is one of Shanon's friends from Faulkner. She would come downt to camp on the nights that Cornerstone performed, but then she was outta there. Kim and I haven't really spent a lot of time together, so it was fun to get to know her better and it's always fun to hang out with Shanon. Another friend, Miranda, was supposed to come as well, but she ended up having to stay home :(. She contacted me several weeks before the trip to see if I wanted to do a little surprise party for Shanon. Her birthday is actually tomorrow, but we both thought it would be the perfect opportunity to surprise her. So, I was in decorating and cake making mode. Shanon and Miranda are both cake bakers, so trying to come up with something creative that will impress them brought on quite the challenge. After long agonizing hours of thinking about it, I decided to do cake pops!
I actually decided to buy the cake pop pan from Bed, Bath and Beyond.
Then you just pull them out. Some of them do have 'Saturn rings,' but those are easily removable with some kitchen sheers.
This is my tupperware half full of the 'overpour.' I think you could get a could half a pan out of this...I'll know next time :).
Then started creating the next morning. I did purple vanilla flavored candies and milk chocolate.
I use that hat box for my diaper cakes (don't worry they aren't used diapers). Actually, now I'm looking at this I realized I used the wrong box because I have purple I meant to use...whoops!!
This is what Shanon saw when she came in the house!! I got the hanging balloon idea from pinterest...super cute and super cheap!!! Then those stick things are from my winter table centerpiece! Happy Birthday (tomorrow) Shanon!!!
We really had a GREAT WEEKEND!!! We went to Chuy's, shopping, experienced 5 for 5 clearance at Charming Charlies with a 5 year old and a 1 year old...fun let me tell ya! We stayed up late and slept in. We got snowed on and we visited Papa Bear and Bebe (my parents). It was a blast and I can't wait until we can do it again.
