A Bouquet of Cake Pops

Here in Canada we celebrated Thanksgiving Day almost 1 month ago. I, in my small apartment that is probably around 600 square feet (including the 'hall' and closets), hosted Thanksgiving dinner. 7 people (2 kids, 2 teens, 3 adults). 1 dog. I've NEVER hosted dinner before and the pressure (self-imposed of course) was definitely on.

I'm super proud to say that everything came together perfectly AND the food was delicious (if I do say so myself). I'm going to share pictures of the dressed table in another post but I wanted to share some pics of the cake pops I made for the occasion. I saw them on Bakerella's website (she's a GENUIS when it comes to creative, yummy, baked goods).



And while mine weren't as perfectly rounded as hers (no where close actually) I still think they were pretty cute. I had the fab idea to present them in my monkey vase (yes, finally pics of the monkey vase!) - I thought it would look fun and it did...like he was holding a bouquet of cake pops....





I'm telling ya, when he's not on lookout duty in the kitchen or busy holding fruit - I've got plans for him to dress up various spots around the house during special occasions and holidays.

And of course those poor cake pops didn't stand a chance. They were gone within the first 20 minutes :)

Aw! Those looks absolutely amazing. You're so inspiring. I would never think to do cake pops. People are lucky to get a cupcake out of me (not because I don't bake, but because I tend to eat them all myself).

P.S. Can't wait to find out the winner of the new layout. Yep, I'm stalking your blog. I REALLY hope I win. :)

I thought these were adorable when I saw them in your Thanksgiving post. I love the monkey. I am wanting to try these cake pops. I just recently bought a brownie pop silicone pan.
