The kid’s birthday party has come and gone. I can’t believe I have a five year old who will be starting kindergarten in a couple of weeks! While browsing around Pinterest for party ideas, I came across these superhero valentine lollipops with masks and capes. Then I just happened to come across this AWESOME video tutorial on how to make cake pops on Divas Can Cook. Suddenly I had a moment of genius and thought “superhero cake pops!” Then… I googled it, and of course it has already been done. Never an original idea, thanks to the internet! Oh well, without further adieu, here are the superhero and princess cake pops that I came up with for the party.
I just used a store bought mix and frosting. I free handed the cape shape on some card stock and cut a small “X” with my X-Acto knife where the stick was going to get pushed through. The mask is simply piped on with white chocolate mixed with blue coloring. P.S. in case you can’t tell, I suck at piping!!!
And here we have our princess pops. I used pink chocolate melts for these ones and tied shiny pink tulle on the bottom of each one. The crowns are made of Laffy Taffy. I found the idea to do that here on InsanKnitty. Cheap, easy, and tasty! I found that the easiest way for me to work with the taffy was to roll it out like a snake (reach back to your playdough days), slightly flatten it, and then cut out the triangles for the top of the crown. I didn’t microwave it because it got too sticky when I tried that.
Not too bad for my first attempt at cake pops right? They tasted so good!
By the way, so happy that everyone liked my superhero masks. The boys (even the big ones) loved them! It was my cousin, Richie’s, 22nd birthday so he got to pick a mask too. LOL! Happy birthday Richie!
Still working on photos of the princess crowns. Hoping to have those up in a few days. I think I might just be crafted out for a while! I need a nap! 🙂
