Our friends K and C got married over the weekend - Congratulations you two lovebirds!!! C knows that I love to bake, and she thought cake pops would be cute to have at the reception. So a couple months before the wedding, I started baking and testing and practicing making Bakerella's famous cupcake pops.
The first attempt was okay. The pops were cute, but I needed practice in shaping them and I also needed to practice my dipping technique.
For the second attempt a few weeks later, I made a batch of 30 pops for my co-worker's birthday. These turned out a little better.
And the third attempt was for the real deal ... the wedding! I ended up making 100 pops - although some didn't look too great, so my taste testers (my hubby and my 3-year old) got to eat the "mess-ups". And me, of course. So only 90 of them made it to the reception. My husband even built special styrofoam and wood stands for me to display the pops in. (Thanks hon!)
It was really chaotic setting them up at the wedding, and since I had the two kids with me, I didn't get a great picture of them all set up at the wedding. But here's how it ended up looking.
