A couple of years ago a co-worker of mine told me she was going to get married at a vineyard, and I thought how nice. Well all of the co-workers wanted to throw her a a bridal shower at work, and I was approached to make cake pops. The first time I made cake pops let me tell you it was certainly time consuming and tedious, but through the years you get your technic down and it really is a piece of cake no pun intended.
The first time I saw a cake pop my husband brought it home and was so excited to share this with me. I thought to myself this is one big lollipop, but um nope it was a brilliant idea from Starbucks. If you have never had a cake pop I would be surprise try them at Starbucks especially the birthday cake. Because I was so intrigued by these things I decided to do them myself. The first time I made them I took them to work, and everyone at first was like what the heck is this, but then once they tasted them the rest was history I was the cake pop baker at my work. I loved to share this new idea to everyone, and so I got to be a little creative at this Bridal shower.
One of my co-workers asked me how can we do this make it a wine theme, it took me awhile to figure it out. She had a brilliant idea to get wine boxes for the cake pops stands, and I would stick Styrofoam in them and cover them up with shredded grass or paper. I was not sure where to get the wine boxes, but she went to the local grocery store and they had these boxes in the back ready to be tossed out!!! Now I am not sure if you can still do this since now a days Pinterest has made them so popular so you could ask your local grocery store if they have these in the back ready to be tossed and if so can you take them off their hands, they would be happy to do that for you since less trash for them to compact. These boxes were so nice I could not believe that they were ready to be tossed out in the garbage. So she got a couple of these for free and then I did the finishing touches. It was a lot of fun, and creative idea I thought to share this with you
