Pokeman Treats

A couple of weeks ago I had an order for Pokeman Pikachu Cake Pops, Rice Crispy Poke Balls and a small Poke ball cake. This was the first time I have ever done anything Pokeman before. I did lots of research and found lots of visuals to use while creating the Pikachu cake pop to look exactly like he looks. The cake pops were a long process. I made the ears and tail out of candy melts. Once I designed the shape of the ears I let them dry then dipped the tip of the ears in dark chocolate. I also made the tails all separately, then allowed them to dry and dipped the tail in red just like the real Pikachu. After that was all created I made the cake pops, dipped them in yellow candy melts and added the ears then tail. Once the cake pops dried I hand painted the faces. After 4 hours they were complete! Was so happy with how they turned out! For the rice crispy poke balls I used a circle shape cookie cutter. Once all of them were cut out then I dipped each half in separate colors. After both sides dried I used black icing to complete them. For the birthday boy's own giant pokeman ball I just did a giant cake pop minus the cake pop stick. Covered it with candy melts. It was fun doing a theme that I have never done before. Thanks Amy for your order! Glad Grant had a great birthday! I will add the pictures below.



Here was the process:

Stars Wars Theme Birthday Party

Over the weekend I was hired to throw a Star Wars theme birthday party for a little 5 year old boy Jadon. This was an easy theme for me to do because my son Cayden loves Star Wars and has so many props to use to decorate for it. The Star Wars dessert table was all made by me. The treats consisted of Light Saber pretzels, Wookie Cookies which were M&M cookies, Star Wars Rice crispy pops, Star Wars Cake Pops & cupcakes, Chocolate covered marshmallows and Death Ball Oreo Balls. I love using recycled things for my parties, so I used bunches of cans, glass Starbuck frap bottles and tons of treat cardboard boxes that I save from our food pantry in our house. I also reuse wrapping paper to wrap the boxes and use them as risers for the Star Wars props to sit on. I hand made the cake toppers by using scrap book paper and tooth picks and stickers. All of the cans had scrapbook paper wrapped around them with a Star Wars sticker placed on card stock on the front of them. Each of the kids had a name tag made with scrap book paper labeled "Jedi" then their name. The Starbucks frap bottles had scrap book and card stock and I printed their Jedi name on them with a striped star in them. I used Star Wars Ships and figurines everywhere. The games that were played were find the Star Wars figurines, pin the space ship, Star Wars bingo and a Darth Pinata. It was the perfect evening! The kids each received a light up light saber and a goodie bag of Star Wars desserts. I will list below the party in the making. Enjoy!
