Cake Pop Christmas Tree and Treats for School


Christmas is just around the corner and I think I'm finally ready! Everything I wanted to get done is done.... thank goodness! Now all I have to do is wait for Santa! 

Later this week my hubby is having a Christmas potluck at work. He asked me if I could make a desert. Initially I had planned on making cupcakes, but since I had already planned on making cake pops for the kids at school I thought I would just make a few more. Well 92 to be exact!


Since edible arrangements are so popular, I thought I'd take that idea and make my own and make a Christmas tree using all the cake pops. 


To make the tree I used a Styrofoam cone. First I covered it in a green tissue paper and then wrapped with tinsel. Then just randomly stuck the cake pops all around the tree. Isn't it pretty??? and don't they just look sooooo yummy! Well they are.... I just had to try one, OK maybe two, LOL!!!



Remember those personalized clay ornaments I made a few weeks ago? Here they are again. I used them as tags on the cake pops, to give each student in my children's class. I think they are going to love this treat!


See, here is the second cake pop I ate... totally for photo purposes, hehe! Makes my mouth drool just looking at it! For tips on how I make my cake pops, click here. FYI, one cake box recipe made 92 cake pops using the Babycakes Cake Pop maker.

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Holidays!
Hope your mouth didn't water too much! ;)

These look so yummy! Did you use one of those cake pop machines? I am trying to figure out how to make it without buying a machine. LOL I found your lovely blog on Made in Day link party. I am a new follower of your lovely blog. Love for you to stop by www.homesweetbutterfly.com

Thanks and Merry Christmas

Hugs,

Thanks Kristin! Will visit you soon :)

Thanks so much Vanessa! I will visit you soon! :)

To answer your question Vanessa, yes I did use a cake pop maker. In my opinion they are way easier, less mess, the cake pops aren't as heavy and way less calories (not that that matters a whole lot if you are just going to eat one, but who does that LOL!)

Thatis not only beautiful, but now you have made me hungry. It is also good to see a blog that is not deserted. I had deserted mine for a long time, but just recently bought it back to life with a holiday page with coupon offers.
I crafted for many years until cataracts forced me to give it up.
Have a great holiday. I am now following you and hope you will visit me also.
