Graduation Party

I was asked to help set up for a graduation party last weekend and it was a lot of fun!  The dessert table was done in the school colors, blue and orange.  The host requested 50 white cake pops with blue and orange sprinkles, I think it looked great. I  love dessert tables based on a color scheme.  I wish I took more pictures of the full dessert table with the balloons, cupcakes, and cookies, but I had to rush to another graduation party and didn't get a chance to capture the finished image.  BUMMER!

My friend's boyfriend graduated from graduate school the same weekend and I wanted to make him graduation cake pops.  I was pooped after making 50 cake pops, but I was able to pull these together in a few minutes and I'm satisfied with the results. 

Congratulations to the class of 2011!

My sister's baby shower

My first event that involved cake popping was my sister's baby shower.  I really enjoyed planning her baby blue and yellow duck baby shower.  I made a total 150 cake pops! Most were used as favors and some were for the dessert table.  With lemon cake, strawberry cake and oreos, I made four kinds of cake pops.  I made baby blue (lemon) and pink (strawberry) cake pops with white sprinkles and a cupcake cake pop (Oreos) with baby blue M&Ms.  I also made some duck cake pops using lemon cake. 

I'm inspired by Amy Atlas, so for my first event, with a modest budget I wanted to create a cute and simple dessert table with cake pops, orange creamsicle cupcakes and some brownies.  Thanks to my friends S & L, the diaper cakes were a great addition to the table! I also created the simple banner to go with the babyshower theme colors.  



My name is Jen and I'm excited to showcase my cake pops on this blog!  It has been a long time since I've blogged (xanga days in college) so it'll take a little getting used to :)
