Happy Groundhog Day…cake pop style!!
It’s Happy Hour somewhere in the world right now, so let’s start it off right.
Margarita and Martini Cake Pops are on me!
It’s our Elf on the Shelf!
If not, you definitely should.
We were recently introduced to this adorable story
and it’s quickly become a family favorite!
The story goes that this mischievous little elf watches your family during the day and reports back to Santa each night. But when he comes back he’s always hiding in a new spot.
Today, our elf (Buddy) was spotted in the kitchen around the stand mixer, and it looks like he whipped up some
cake pop friends!
We do have three rambunctious boys running around our house, so I’m guessing he needs all the help he can get.
I wonder, though, how they’ll report back to Santa
if they get eaten…
Either way, they’re keeping an eye on you!
I wonder where they’ll pop up next?
Christmas Stocking Cake Pops!
The great thing about these is that you can decorate
them any way you want.
To color the socks, first I dipped the whole thing in red candy melt. After letting it dry completely, I dipped the toe in green, and then pipped it onto the heel.
Finally, I dipped the top of the cake pop in white and textured it with a toothpick.
I chose to fill my stockings with Teddy Grahams, candy canes, chocolate crunch sprinkles, flower sprinkles, and Sixlets candies. But really, the sky is the limit and you can let your imagination run wild here!
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care…
But these cake pops were made with some added flair!
It’s a Major Award!
This leg lamp cake pop is inspired from the classic movie,
A Christmas Story.
I found great dolls to use at the Dollar Store with hollowed out legs. The stick fit inside perfectly. I drew on the fishnet stocking, the pop itself is a fairly basic shape, and I added black Jimmies for the edge of the lamp shade.
Put it all together and the lamp is “ready to blaze forth in unparalleled glory”!
Today we’re getting the Christmas decorations out.
And the first thing that goes up at our house is the Christmas wreath!
These particular wreath cake pops are just as tasty
as they are cute to look at.
I used licorice rope for the bow and a white chocolate chip for the center. I textured the green candy melt with a toothpick and decorated it with holiday sprinkles.
As soon as all the decorations are up today, I know exactly how we are going to celebrate!
Happy Thanksgiving from us to you!
