No-Bake Cake Pops {Guest Post – Best Birthdays}

I am so excited to have Katie here from Best Birthdays to help me while I’m on vacation with my family.  If you need some party inspiration, venue locations (in the Calgary area), food ideas, decoration and DIY help or birthday entertainment ideas, Katie is your girl!

I’ve made cake pops in the past (and what a mess they can be!) but since seeing Katie’s easy No-Bake Cake Pops version, I am definitely doing it this way from now on!  Even my kids can help out!

Now I’ll turn it over to Katie:

I like cake as much as the next girl (okay, probably more), but I’m useless at baking. The last time I tried to make cookies, they came out like muffins. Muffins that tasted like cement.
On the other hand, cake pops are adorable. Luckily, there is an easy cheat for those of us who are lazy and/or terrible at baking.

Step 4, of course, is pig out on cake pops. Or, you know, serve them to party guests. Enjoy!

Thanks so much Katie!  What a great idea and an easy activity you can do with your kids!  Timbits are always easy to get and they always taste so good.  My favorite is Sour Cream Glazed.  What’s yours?

It’s been so long since I’ve posted last that I actually feel refreshed and energized to get back into the swing of things.

Now that summer’s in full swing it seems like the kids can’t get enough of things to snack on.  I always have fresh veggies and fruit on hand but lately we’ve all been tempted by a not-so-healthy snack – chips!   I’m a flavoured chip kinda girl but on occasion I like to indulge in […]

There’s nothing  better than sitting around a campfire and toasting up marshmallows and squishing them between a piece of chocolate and two cookies!  Who wouldn’t love that?   But, if […]
