Mini Hawaiian Cheesecakes

I am so dedicated to blogging. 

I'm on vacation on the Big Island visiting family and friends and I made you Hawaiian Cheesecakes! They are so easy to make, perfect to share, and made with a fun Hawaiian Twist. 

I picked up some Hawaiian Jellies and topped my mini cheesecakes. There was the amazing Lilikoi Jelly, Guava and Strawberry Guava Jam, Papaya-Pineapple Jam, and Guava Jelly.

I thought that all of the flavors were great! You can totally add your own flavor of jam or jelly to your cheesecake. These are very easy to whip up for a list minute dinner or they freeze great for a hidden dessert in the back of the fridge.

All of these Blogger have teamed up for National Cheesecake  Day! Check out all these other Cheesecake Recipes!

Two Cup Tuesday No.82

I am still having a great time on vacation on the Big Island. There are 11 people sleeping in my Mom's house and I'm loving it! My Brother and his partner are here and my sister and her family are also visiting. My mom built the house to have all of her family come to visit. It's great!
Yesterday we went Zipling and my daughter and niece did GREAT!! The two 8 year olds had a blast and there was no fear at all! It was all excitement and glee!
I've done some baking while here. Check out my post on Dieter's Downfall. I've made a Lilikoi Cheesecake with a Macadamia Nut Shortbread Crust. It was amazing and I'm sorry to report that it's already all gone.

If you ever get a change to get some Lilikoi (Passion Fruit) I highly recommend it. I want to add it to everything - ice cream, bars, popsicles, ice cream, fudge... I want lilikoi EVERYTHING!

How to Make Gerbera Daisy Cake Pops

While I'm on vacation, my friend Bob, from Take the Cake made some beautiful cake pops for you. These are pretty easy and straight-forward to you to make at home. 
With summer in full swing and plenty of BBQ’s and parties to enjoy we wanted to share a fun and easy way to make the perfect Host or Hostess gift!

All you will need is the following to make this gorgeous centerpiece:
Cake pop dough for 7-8 pops
Silk Gerbera daisy flowers off the stem
6 inch cake pop sticks
Flower pot with foam and crinkle paper inside

Start off making your basic cake pops on 6 inch sticks. Pick your favorite color for the center of the flower. Yellow is the choice for us. Dip your cake pops and add any decoration that you would like. We have gone with a fun swirl that adds texture to the pops. While these are drying you can prepare the flowers.
Take the silk flower off of the stem and remove the yellow center. Be sure to take off the greenery from the bottom of the flower.  This will help hold the petals into place. Give the yellow center a good tug. It will come out almost like a button with a stem.

Slowly slide the cake pop on your stick in the hole of the petals. Don’t worry if the petals separate. You can slide them on like a puzzle piece if needed.  Once all petals are in place slide on the plastic greenery on the bottom. This will hold the petals into place for your cake pops.
Once you have all your flowers set you are ready to arrange them in the flower pot. Make sure that you leave enough room between each flower so you are not crowding your centerpiece. 

Now you have the perfect and one of a kind gift to start the party right!.  Simple and Elegant!

Have a fun and safe summer everyone!

Mandarin Orange and Coconut Popsicles

It has been so hot and muggy in the DC area that all I want are popsicles and ice cream. I want them for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks in between. I love citrus so I thought I might try some popsicles with a citrus twist. 

I thought these Mandarin orange and coconut popsicles would be a perfect combination.

I wish I had my popsicle mold with me in Hawaii. I would make some of these while I'm here. I bet my Step-Dad would love them; he loves his popsicles.

Tiki Cake Pops

I am on vacation on the Big Island and loving it!! I asked Lisa if she would make some special cake pops for me and she came up with these Tiki inspired Cake Pops for you! Aloha!

hello to all you PINT SIZE BAKER readers!
can i tell you how excited i am to be here on Karyn's blog?! 
i didn't even finish reading the entire email from her when she asked me if i could guest post before i said yes yes yes!

anyway, before i go any further i guess i better introduce myself.
i'm lisa from hoopla palooza where you will find crazy fun tutes for making fun food, fun crafts, and fun whatever. don't come over looking for sophistication cuz you won't find it there which is exactly my intention! 

making cake pops is one of the food crafts that i enjoy so when Karyn asked me if i could do something hawaiian, i came up with this:
the thing about these cake pops are that they can be designed any way you choose. that's the fun part.
