The baby that was in the belly at this baby shower (more treats here) just turned 1!
Blue’s Clues was the theme, so we made lots of blue sweet treats!
Of course there had to be cookies. These were bagged and used as favors.
I made cake pops, but we wanted them to have puppy paws on them. I came up with the idea of using an oreo pop mold that I found online. I will definitely be using this technique again!
I did the paw print darker blue. I squeezed candy melts into the paw print, then tapped the tray to settle it into the mold. This also helped get all the air bubbles out. Tapping is key! Then I put these in the fridge for a few minutes to harden up.
With the lighter blue I squeezed a layer across the bottom of the mold. Then tap tap tap!
I mixed up the cake pop dough like normal, but instead of rolling it into balls I flatted it into a thick pancake and cut circles out of it with a circle cookie cutter. Then I just dropped a disk of cake into each mold and gently pressed it into the candy melts.
Then I just squeezed more candy melts around the cake and across the top, tapped it against the counter, and popped it into the fridge to harden up.
Once they had hardened completely (maybe 20 minutes?) they came out of the molds really easily.
Look how fancy they look!!
I also made the little guy his very own smash cake… that will be forthcoming!
