Back in the Glass Etched Hot Chocolate Mugs post, I had mentioned that I had helped my friend Veronica make vintage Barbie silhouette shirts. She had sent me a link of what she had in mind for the shirts. Around that same time, I had received an order request for a baby shower favor from another friend. She wanted the favors to be edible and gave me a budget to work with. After some contemplation, I decided cake pops were the best option for the budget. The theme of the baby shower was Parisian with the traditional colors of black, white, and pink. I wanted to incorporate all three colors into the cake pop but was uncertain of how at that moment. Until Veronica sent me the link…a link of a party. The party was a vintage Barbie Paris theme that Kim from Tomkat Studio had thrown for her daughter’s birthday. As soon as I saw the URL, I knew exactly which party it was even before clicking on it. I had fallen in love with this party when it first came out! It was an amazing and gorgeous party! Don’t ya think? Well, if you look through this gorgeous party you will see that cake pops were a part of the stunning dessert table. They were made by Terri’s Treasures. Instead of the traditional lollipop sticks, black and white paper straws were used for the cake pops! Genius! That’s what I would use!
Here you have them, black and white straws with blush pink cake pops. I used my secret chocolate cake recipe for the cake pops…it’s a killer recipe folks! Susu one time told me that I make magic with my cake pops! LOL!! Thanks Susu:D I must say I thought cake pops were just okay until I discovered this recipe (hehe).
The perfect touch, and what I thought really made the cake pop favors pop (no pun intended), were the beautiful favor tags. I had asked my friend to send me the information of the person that made the invitations because I thought it would be nice to match the favor tags to the invitations. They were made by the Paper Candee Shoppe. Desiree is the mastermind behind the Paper Candee Shoppe. Her work is beautiful, and it was such a pleasure working with her.
I love paper straws! They are so simple, but yet make a big statement. Since the straws are 8″ long, I did need to shorten them so I cut off a couple of inches. I couldn’t help but save the cut off ends. I’m saving them for a rainy day… I’m sure one day an idea of what to do with them will arise:P
You can catch my cake pops at these linky parties!
