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.

To help the stick stay in the Timbit, dip it in chocolate too, before poking it into the donut. Use an upside-down egg carton to hold the coated Timbits while they drip. Then…

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?

Cherry Upside-down Cake | A Sweet Baker

Cherry Upside-down Cake + Two Giveaways!

It’s cherry season where I live and that means we’ve been stuffing our faces with fresh cherries! I’ve never made an upside-down cake before so when I had two bags of cherries in my fridge I set out to make this Cherry Upside-down Cake.  I’m sure glad I did because it was A-MAZ-ING! The funny […]

Honey Teriyaki BBQ Chicken with Broccoli Almond Stir Fry

Can you believe that summer is FINALLY here?  My family has been looking forward to summer ever since…….well, let’s be honest, last September!  There’s no better time to hang out with friends, go on road trips or have a delicious BBQ with family.  One of our favourite dishes to do on the BBQ is this […]

Sour Cream Dill Pickle Dip | A Sweet Baker

Sour Cream Dill Pickle Dip #GayLeaFoods

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 […]

S'mores Chex Mix | A Sweet Baker

S’mores Chex Mix (Gluten Free) #SummerWithChex

Yeah!!!  It’s officially S’more Season and I can’t wait to eat my share of S’mores and S’more-inspired treats (like this S’mores Chex Mix) this summer! 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 […]

Chicken & Veggie Spring Rolls #BlueDragonMom

Whenever we go out for Chinese Food I always make sure to order Spring Rolls.  They’re one of my favourite things on the menu and I love dipping them in a sweet sauce. I never thought that making my own Chicken & Veggie Spring Rolls at home would be so easy.  I had these delicious […]

Sweet Potato & Cottage Cheese Tart | A Sweet Baker

Sweet Potato and Cottage Cheese Tart

The only way I ate cottage cheese growing up was with salt and pepper or in my mom’s lasagna. That’s the only way I thought you could eat it.  One day, however, that all changed. One sunny winter day, my husband and I met his Aunt for a day of downhill skiing.   We had […]
