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.

Two Cup Tuesday No.80


I love blogging. I've been doing now for over three years and I feel like I have learned a lot, made a lot of great friends and contacts, and have discovered a whole new part of myself. When I first started blogging I had no clue what I was doing, where I was going, what the do's and don'ts were, how to take a good photo - much less how to use my camera. I new nothing of SEO, SMO, or HTML. Three years ago, to bloggers started Online Blog Con and it changed everything for me. This year, I'm heading up the Online Blog Conference and I'd like to invite everyone to register. This year, the conference will help beginners and experienced bloggers learn, connect, and grow.
Please join us. We'd love to have you!
There's also a ticket up for grabs for another 24 hours. Enter HERE for your chance to win a ticket!


This week on Dieter's Downfall, I'm decorating a Mermaid Birthday Cake. I've got the basics of adding a crumb coat, making flavored fondant, and decorating the cake with scales.

Watermelon Ice Cube Lemonade

I got a stinker watermelon the other day :(

The outside was good, it was firm at the stem area and I thought I was getting a good one. Well, when I went to slice into it, the center was soft, , mealy, and mushy. Basically, too gross for eating. I was going to throw the entire thing into the trash, but then I decided I was going to rescue the good parts and puree it to smithereens!
