Drama Party Goodies

Jacob's in the Drama Troupe at his school. For their end-of-year banquet, I was asked to make some goodies for the party.  I decided on cake pops and mini cake balls.  Then at the last minute I made a small carrot cake too, just for the heck of it.

I dropped off the goodies and went on my way.  Everyone ooooh'd and aaaah'd.

I dropped a cake pop on the carrot cake.  Nice.  

Get it?  Drama club? Get it?
(see where I messed up the icing? *sigh*)

Fun popcorn bag pops

One of the male drama students made this!  Nice!!

Out of Business?

My daughter's inventing.  Should I be worried she'll put me out of business?

Should I also worry that the machine that makes cakes and cake pops can also alter your molecular structure and make you invisible?  ;)

Popcorn and Graduation Caps

I did some more work with Bakerella's book, practicing for two separate events; the Drama troupe's end-of-year party and Jacob's graduation party.

For the drama troupe we have

Popcorn pops.  Yellow cake, chocolate frosting, vanilla candy.  SO cute!  My red food marker was just not working well enough.  Next time, I am using a paint brush and red gel food coloring.  Hopefully it will be more vivid.  The popcorn?  Mini marshmallows scored through 3 times with a knife.

For Graduation

I made the tops using a candy mold, but they're a bit too thick.  This is why I practice.  Next time, I'll fill the molds a little less.  Also, the top little blob holding the tassel is supposed to be a mini M&M but I did not have any.  I'll buy some for the ones I do make for his party.  They're cute though!

Cupcake Pops

I follow Bakerella's blog.  She's so cute and I love all the things she does.  Her most famous treats are her cake pops.

I purchased her Cake Pops book with some gift cards I got from work. Yay, work!  Then I decided to try out  one of her cake pops creations, cupcake pops.  OF COURSE I try one of the most difficult designs.  Also, the cutter I used was too big, so they did not end up right (I need to buy a smaller one) but they are still a hit in this house.
