Graduation is upon us, and I’m not ready. Here in the Bay Area, graduation is the second week of June. Did I mention I am not ready? I love celebrations and parties and planning parties, but every time I start thinking about my son graduating, I burst into tears because I’m not ready. Is he ready? Yes, I’m sure he is. He has big plans, college plans, career plans. And he’s going to live a big, beautiful, adventurous life, and I am excited for him. Excuse me, I need to go get a tissue…
Ok, I’m back. (deep breathe)
I love to plan parties. For my son’s graduation celebration, I’ve ordered GIANT “2015” mylar balloons, decorations, photos, and food. I’ve sent the announcements and invitations; now I just needed some dessert ideas. Janine and I were talking about it, and we decided we should learn to make CAKE POPS! I’ve seen them on Pinterest and thought they are so cute, but it must be difficult to cut a cake into circles, how do they do that? (I’m blonde). Janine’s sweet neighbor told her she has a cake pop maker and that we could borrow it. We gathered some recipes and got to work.
First, we used this amazing cake pop maker by Babycakes. It works similar to a waffle maker and the little cake pops bake in just three minutes. Did you hear that? Three minutes. I was amazed.
|We used Wilton’s White Fondantite Fondant and green food coloring.|
