Test Kitchen: Ideas for Valentine’s Day

Can you believe we are almost to Valentine’s Day?? 2012 is already going by way too fast!

I started getting some ideas together for Valentine’s Day. Cake pops are GREAT for little kid’s parties, either as favors or the valentines themselves. There are many ways to go about this; a heart cake pop decorated however you wish, a standard cake pop in Valentine’s themed sprinkles, or even cake pops with a written love message on them.

 

***Please ignore the cracked cake pop in the back, these are test kitchen cake pops and my orders would in no way be in that kind of shape!***

 

Or how about a bouquet of flowers, like the flowers in this post? They would be very cute arranged in a vase!

 

Or maybe you want some chocolate covered strawberries cake pops?

How cute would these be? They can be made either on a stick or off.

 

Please feel free to contact me about any other ideas you have!

And stay tuned for later this week, I have some very exciting news to share 🙂

Behind The Scenes: Test Cake Pops

I wanted to show these cake pops because I thought these were a good example of how some of my ideas fall into place.

Remember these little beauties?

They actually started out like this:

When asked to do the fairy garden theme for D and M’s 4th birthday party, I wanted to come up with a couple of ideas that their mom could choose from. The flowers in the back I had seen on Bakerella before and thought they would fit in perfectly for a garden themed party. Flowers. Garden. They just go together.

I also wanted to do a couple of different color combos to see what they looked like. The butterfly mold had dragonflies on it, so I made some of those to have even more variety.

While M, D, and their mom loved all the options, it was apparent that butterflies were definitely the strongest theme of the party, so it made sense to go with all butterflies in the party’s colors. Either way, it was fun coming up with all these different pop!
