So, for my daughters birthday party this past weekend I thought it would be a great idea to have some already made, then have the girls decorate them. It was a huge hit! Kids just love getting messy and creating things at the same time. Here is what I did, I made cake balls (recipe to follow), stuck a stick in them and refrigerated them over night. The next day at the party, I melted vanilla coating and chocolate coating, then had several bowls of stuff to dip them in. Sprinkles, M&Ms, mini marshmallows, nuts, and colored sugar. They spent quite awhile decorating and eating their pops. I would definitely do this again for a birthday party!
Ethan couldn't believe he was able to make such a mess. He was in total bliss!
Don't mind the messy kitchen in the background :)
Ethan was so funny with the headband on his head. Silly boy!
I had them put their finished products on parchment paper to set them. Then put them in the fridge, until they went home, so they would harden. I think they really enjoyed the whole process!
To make the cake balls you will need:
A box of cake mix and a container of frosting, yep that's it!
Cook cake according to box, let cool, mash up into crumbs (yep destroy the cake) and mix in frosting. Let sit in fridge for about an hour and roll into balls. Put a stick in it, let sit for a couple hours (or overnight) and they are ready to be decorated!
