This year I had no time to make anything special for Valentine’s Day because I am teach that very day so no time for romance. However, last year I made a couple of things and I’d like to share them with you.

After showing you have to make Christmas Tree and Present Cake pops, lets keep going and see what else we can do for Christmas themed cake pops.
This is going to be a little series, since I made various cake pops for an order. All were Christmas themed and we started with the Christmas tree three days ago. Now we need to put something under it.
I am sure by now that cake pops a good for pretty much any occasion. So far I’ve made regular round ones but also character ones like Angry Birds or Lalaloopsy. Of course they are perfect for Christmas as well. How about some Christmas trees?
As far as I understand it, it is graduation time right now. I am not sure of how the high school or even university schedule works, I have no kids. However, it seems to be a rather big deal in North American and there are many ways to celebrate it. Of course some form of dessert needs to be included and thus I was approached with the request of Graduation Cake Pops.
A friend of mine asked me if I would make cake pops for her son’s birthday party. He particularly likes Angry Birds. You know, those little colourful birds which are angry at green pigs for some reason or another. I have no iPhone or Android so I do not play that game. (I know my husband does, once in a while.) So, here I am, making birds.
Again, before I start, there is a Giveaway on this blog. Check out the Easter Giveaway. Thank you for stepping by.
Now to this post: I am a big fan of cake pops, it is a lovely idea for any party because you can customize them fairly easy. The first time I saw them was on the front cover of a Betty Crockers magazine, Halloween pops by Bakerella. (Find her page here.) Since then I am hocked and I make them whenever it seems suitable, like appreciating dads on Father day.
A week ago I was making a cake for my sister in law’s baby shower. Unfortunately the cake broke and I was left with various pieces and no way to fix it. Reason for that “disaster” was too much shortening. I still have to get used to the measuring over here and when the recipe is asking for 1/3 cup oft shortening I shouldn’t use 3/4.
