Then today, my friend Becca and her 2 kids came to our house for the afternoon. I was trying to find something we could do to occupy our time and then it came to me! Several months ago (while looking for cupcake-themed decor for Jill's 'big girl' room) I ran across a website for cupcake pops. While on the site, there was a link to Sesame Street Cake Pops and I was intrigued. Cake pops are just what they sound like. It is cake (I made a 9x13 white cake) crumbled up and mixed with a container of frosting then molded into balls with a lolipop stick stuck in them. Then, you coat them with colored molding chocolate and then decorate. The kids' attention spans were not quite long enough for the project, but Becca and I sure had some fun! Not too shabby for our 1st attempt. Enjoy the pictures!
