These cake pops were done for a friend's sister-in-law's daughter. She saw these brownie pops from this site, Brownie Pops and she wanted to incorporate these as favors. She wanted them to look a little chic but yet nice for her daughter's baptism. We found these on Beaucoup and they were just what she wanted.
I used my ever so popular homemade chocolate cake recipe and formed them into cake balls. I inserted a lollipop stick into the cake ball and dipped them into melted white chocolate and milk chocolate. For the design, each pop had the baby's initial, A, for Abby and some other scrollwork and dot design. For the finishing touch, each pop was bagged and tied with a white fabric. A personalized tag with an guardian angel background brought it all together.

I know. I know. I'm really really late in posting this. But here it is finally. Anabel's birthday party was held at C.B. Smith Park in Pembroke Pines, FL. It was a beautiful day and we had a great time. We had a Straberry Shortcake bouncehouse, Strawberry Shortcake herself made a personal appearance, a clown that did face painting for the kiddies and balloons, and other goodies. This was a very special birthday because this was a milestone for Anabel. After everything we went through when Anabel was born, we could not believe that one year later we were celebrating her first birthday.
This is probably one of the prettiest cakes I've done to date. The birthday cake was a 10 inch and a 6 inch vanilla butter rum cake with a strawberry cream filling covered in fondant. The Strawberry Shortcake doll was also made by me with the help of 2 great cake decorating and modeling instructors that came from Peru to teach at a local cake decorating supply store that I buy from. This doll took around 5 1/2 hours or so to do and to be honest, she wasn't entirely finished. I didn't put the little white polka dots on the hat because there wasn't anytime for me. It was a busy week but one of the best birthday party.
Here I am very concentrated in trying to secure Strawberry Shortcake's head to her body.
I also made 2 dozen vanilla butter rum cupcakes w ith a dulce de leche filling and buttercream icing swirled with red coloring and Strawberry Shortcake cupcake pics in a cute cupcake stand.
