How to Make Baby Block Cake Pops

I’ve made a basic post on how to make cake pops, check it out if you’re not sure on how to make the first few steps of the cake pop process.

After scooping out all the cake mixes with my ice cream scooper to keep them about the same size…I formed the block by hand and with a pie cutter to get some flat edges. This was a bit time consuming than rolling a ball, but it was fun :)

After I got all the blocks, I put the tray in the refrigerator while I melted my vanilla bark. You can refer to my basic cake pop tutorial on how to put the sticks in the cake pop. Then I let the cake pops sit in the refrigerator overnight. (If you don’t want to wait overnight, you can wait 2-3 hours before the next few steps)

The next day, I melted my vanilla bark. After melting the vanilla bark you can color the blocks any color you like. I used red color candy oils to get the pink color. I used 1 drop at a time to get the pink color because I didn’t want the color to come out red. And I did the same for the purple, one drop at a time.

I dipped each block in the colored vanilla bark and tap off the excess vanilla on the side of the bowl. Let the cake pop dry upwards. Styrofoam is best to hold the cake pops.

After all the cake pops dried, I melted some more vanilla bark and filled my piping bag to write out the letters on each side. I recommend doing 1 letter on 1 side, let it dry and work on another cake pop. Come back to the pop after it the letter has dried.

That’s how I made my version of baby block cake pops :)

Baby Block Cake Pops

My friend Quyen asked me to make some cake pops for her friend’s baby shower. She had this really cool idea to make baby blocks with the word “BABY” and “GIRL” on each side of the block.

Dessert Tables for any occasion

I’ve been obsessed with dessert tables. They are just awesome additions to any event. A variety of desserts all prettied up with themes and color schemes.

The desserts are similar but its the designs that catches your eye. The ideas that  people have come up with are sooo incredible. All the details including the cute cake stands!

Dessert tables are for all events from birthdays, baby showers, to weddings! Pretty much can have it at any type of gathering. The designs can have a theme to go with whatever event you are planning. Dessert tables can be done on a budget too!

The yellow, brown and white theme dessert table is designed by Amy Atlas, she has wonderful ideas and themes that are awesome. Check out her portfolio of designs. Also on her blog, she gives behind the scenes and tips on dessert tables.

Baby Shower Rubber Ducky Cake

There are soo many cake ideas out there for baby showers. There wasn’t a theme for the baby shower, so I was able to make any design.  I started my research and decided to make a duck sitting on a pond for my cousin, Alyce’s,  baby shower.

I used a duck mold, purchased at Michael’s and a basic cake pan for the cake.

After many, many hours of piping….the cake was complete! I even had to take a mini break for dinner cause it took soo long, but worth the time. The cake was soooo cute! and heavy!
