Make a Wish...and some Cupcake Pops!

Happy Tuesday to ya! I have one card to show you today as well as the cupcake pops I mentioned in yesterday's post.

Here is another birthday card - guess I am trying to stock up on them!
This is Changito Baker from Stampendous. Isn't he cute in his apron? The sentiment is another from Amy R's Birthday Sentiment's set. If you can't tell, I really {heart} her sentiment sets. Changito was colored with copics, cut out using Nesties and the background was sponged with Pink Pirouette. I cut the cake out and popped it up. I colored the icing and flames with Spica Glitter pens. The flower is another one of my crocheted flowers in Ecru DMC floss. I used the SU Sizzix leaf diecut for the leaves. The paper is Pretty in Pink, Gina K. 80# white and Basic Grey Sugared - going through some of my old stuff.

Here are the Copics and Glitter pens I used:
And now onto the Cupcake Pops!!

I got the idea for these from Bakerella's incredible blog. I made these with my kids and my Mom yesterday. Mine are not near as perfect as Bakerella's, but this was my first try at these! I bet they are just as yummy, though! (Click the link for the recipe and directions.) If you have never heard of these, it is essentially cake mixed with icing on a stick dipped in chocolate.

Cake + Icing + Chocolate = YUM!
My kids had so much fun making these!
Who, us? No, we have tasted anything!
Here is the finished product!
This is my oldest daughter and my Mom.
Need I say more?
