Every year, a good friend of mine hosts a Holiday Open House for all of the moms who met at our preschool. You would be surprised, there are a ton of us! This is one of those events where you are asked to bring some food to share – and you know I can’t cook! So, whats a girl to do but make cake pops. Lots and lots of cake pops.
I wanted to go with a “gift” theme for displaying the cake pops, so I got a little creative. I couple of months ago, I got these glittery gift boxes from Target, to use for a different party. Thankfully,
I don’t throw anything away I kept them around because they made the perfect display! Cake pops are pretty top heavy, so I put rock filler in the bottoms of both boxes to anchor them. I filled the rest of each box with rice so the pops had something to stick into. I used hot glue to adhere the top box to the bottom one and to secure the lids. A coordinating ribbon really drove home the “gift” theme, and was a little extra support to hold it all together. Using an x-acto knife, I cut small “X”s into the tops of the boxes for the lolli sticks to slide in easily. One-by-one I stuck those pops in, until there was no more room. It was quick, easy and so stinkin’ cute. WARNING: bring one of these babies to the party and you’re sure to be on cake pop duty every year. Trust me!
