One of the ladies at our church is having a baby in June, and so we wanted to throw her a baby shower. I love planning events, so even though I'd never even been to a baby shower- let alone hosted one, I decided this was something I wanted to do.
We went with the theme "Ready to POP". This left for a lot of creativity when it came to the food. We had cake pops, pop corn cake, pink pop and poppable cucumber sandwiches.
|A sweet friend of mine gave me the chocolate melter from babycakes. While it did a good job keeping the chocolate warm, I had to actually melt the chocolate in the microwave. But I very much appreciated it.|
|I bought marked down Easter sprinkles from Aldi- perfect baby shower colors|
|Pink vanilla flavored Candy Wafers from Hobby Lobby.|
|Baby colors sprinkles|
I used strawberry Pilsberry cake mix. If you would like to see my post on making cake pops, please visit cake-obsession-continues-cake-pops.html.
THEN, through pinterest I found this recipe for pop corn cake. It's made just like a rice crispy bar. I also found these new dark chocolate raspberry (pink) M&Ms, pretzels and Market Pantry microwave pop corn.
|First, you pop 2 bags of pop corn, then you add 2 cups of M&Ms and 1 1/2 cup broken pretzels.|
|Then I melted one (10.5 oz) bag of mini marshmallows with 1 cup of butter.|
|It said to wait a minute or two, so it wouldn't melt the chocolate, which I did, but it still melted. :( So maybe wait a little more. Then poor over dry ingredients, stir together, and press into bunts pan.|
|Let sit for an hour, take out and... VOILA!!!|
|And these are the yummy strawberry cake pops.|
|How cute is that!? :)|
