Fruity Pudding Pops

Strawberry and Blackberry Pudding Pops are a delicious way to cool off during the summer heat!

Do your kids love to get into the kitchen with you when you're cooking or baking? These little fruity pudding pops are great for beginners to get into the kitchen with you and make something yummy. All you'll need is some vanilla pudding and fresh fruit. Just about any kid can handle these with ease.

Rhubarb Sherbet

Easy and Delicious Rhubarb Sherbet. Use fresh fruit for a sweet, seasonal ice cream dessert.
I'm loving summer! The hot days, cool pool, and frozen desserts are the best! When I can use fresh, sweet, seasonal fruit to make a dessert that's even better. In the past few years, my love for rhubarb has grown. This Rhubarb Sherbet is sweet, cold, and packed with rhubarb flavor! The best part is that it comes together in less than 20 minutes (minus some freezer time)! What could be easier?

Two Cup Tuesday No.130

Another week, another party! I'm still in the process of moving my office and I did get a recipe made for Dieter's Downfall, however, there's not much to report at the moment. I've just been so busy with taking my kid to various appointments and activities that my own things have kinda been pushed off. Eh... It's summer and we've got pool plans! Who wants to sit inside and write recipes anyway? 

I'm glad that you're all here! I'll be sharing the (hopefully) completed office AND new recipe next week.

Alligator Cake Pop Tutorial

My cake pop friend Brandi is back with another easy cake pop tutorial. Today she's got an Alligator Cake Pop Tutorial for you. These are sure to please all the little boys out there! You can also add some green triangle candy to his back an change him into a dinosaur! 
I've got to make these adorable Alligator Cake Pops for my little boy's next party! Then I'll make them for my Gator fan during football season!

Hello, my name is Brandi Costa, owner of Painted and Sprinkled. I began cake popping a little over 3 years ago as a way to have "me" time. I fell in love with my first cake pop! I've had the pleasure and honor of collaborating with many party people along the way as well as make my customer's event's extra special with cake pops!
I am first and foremost a mama to a 5 year old special little boy, Gabe. My son is my hero! Gabe was born with special needs so we've had many bumps along our path, but he has been so strong through it all! We say to him "You are our greatest adventure!"
I am a wife of 8 years to my beloved husband, Daniel. We dated throughout high school and still are smitten with one another. He has been my rock.
Well, that's me in a TINY nutshell. :-)

How to make Alligator Cake Pops

You will need - 
  • Cake Pop Dough
  • Green Candy Melts
  • White Candy Melts
  • Black Candy Melts
  • Small Round White Candy or Fondant Balls for eyes
Shape your cake ball into a long oval with one side a little more narrow than the other. Flatten the narrow side. Using a cake pop stick, roll a groove onto the top where the eyes will be placed.
Dip your cake into melted chocolate and stand up to dry.

Pipe two spots on the flat side of pop for the nostrils.
Pipe a line all the way around the front of pop for the mouth.
Place two dots of melted chocolate on the top of the pop for eye placement.

Attach two small white candies or fondant balls for the eyes.
Using a toothpick and melted green chocolate, cover the back half of the eyes for eye lids.

Using a toothpick and melted white chocolate, dot the teeth onto the black mouth line.
Pipe on the pupils.
You're DONE!
This was great Brandi! Thanks so much for sharing this tutorial with everyone. Those gators look so cute and friendly!

Two Cup Tuesday Linky Party No.129

The work in my new office and studio space is coming along. I have to admit that I'd much rather be decorating that room than working on this linky party. I have so many things to do, but all I really want to work on is my office. I've painted over the green that was in there with a pretty lavender color. I'm looking for white/silver/grey accent colors to go with it. We have a really nice teak bookshelf set with a buffet and hutch that I want to hang on the wall. 


I can't wait to get all of my cake platters, cups, and dishes into the space and make this my new happy place! 

My daughter is excited to move into my old office space. She wants to paint the walls and move in so she has her own office. I think it's great that we all have our own space to be creative and hopefully, we can keep the rest of the house a bit more clutter free.
