Baby Shower - Part 5 and Final - DESSERTS!!!

AHHH - Last but NOT least!!!  Dessert!!!!!  Isn't it glorious!  
Let's take a second to just - admire that yumminess.

 I made a banner on the mirror that says "Baby Shower".  Again - my Cricut - and I used...I forgot - I need to get better with remembering these things.
 I think I have pictures of the diaper cake being built - I'll put that in an upcoming post.
 Let's take a closer look.  This little thing cost me about $2.  I took a vase from the $1 store.  Spray painted it, and then took a foam ball from the $1 store - some felt I had, cut it in circles, and pined them on with straight pins - why you ask did I pin them - I was tired of burning my fingers with a glue gun :)
 HEHE - aren't these cute - I had candles in these in my living room.  And from looking at really cool candy buffets!  And thought - OH - I can put candy in these!  So I did - and it looked cute!
 My diaper cake - stay tuned for a tutorial on this.  Any guesses to how many diapers?!?!
 Cake pops!!!!  I used the brownie pop container for my cake pops - I have a picture at the bottom.  I dunked them in white chocolate, and then in chocolate, and covered the chocolate with sprinkles.  I put them in a mason jar with $1 store confetti.

 My other cake stand - remember from the Super Bowl Party and my tiered cake stands posts?  This time with yummy yummy desserts.  There is chocolate covered marshmallows (just the tips!) and then pretzels.

And lastly - it was time consuming - but SO CUTE!!! Cake pop - Baby blocks!!!!  I shaped them into squares.  You will notice that I was using tooth picks to dunk my blocks in chocolate - I am here to tell you it does NOT work - don't waste the tooth picks!  I ended up with a fork and spoon instead :(

Here is how it turned out - I trimmed them with frosting - and it says Dan and Tina Baby Girl.  I wish the picture was better - but - they were good - strawberry!

Here are my cake pops in the brownie pop container.

 And - here is my big FAIL!!! :)  I wanted to make shaped cake pops.  I stuck them in chocolate molds.  That actually worked - word of advice again - use a cooking spray first - they come out MUCH easier!!!

So - I wanted to try something different - I used them with suckers - that worked fine too.

Ready for my fail - I took melted frosting - because when you heat it up - it becomes more liquidy.  So - I heated it up - dunked them all in (which they stayed on there sticks! 

I go to take them out of the fridge - hoping for a hardened cake pop on a stick - guess what folks - frosting does not harden :( they were sticky - I was so sad - because they would have been adorable!  Ug!  Adorable - had they been dipped in chocolate.  Sigh - lesson learned - and hopefully you won't make my mistake!

 But - I can't leave on a fail note!  So let's take one more look at that yummy dessert table!
