Today we're celebrating Davis's birthday at school even though her real birthday isn't till the end of July. I really wanted her to feel special, as every little + big birthday girl should :) I can't recall where I first saw these cuppie cakes...but I loved the idea - (maybe martha stewart?) and decided, despite the heat (it's 90 degrees here) and Davis's teacher requesting popsicles, that I would make these. I know the kids will love them.
Do you know how hard it is to find coloured jimmies + basic lollipops? Seriously, I went on a manhunt. I checked out CVS (the Consumer Value Store), Walmart, our supermarket, the local cake supply shop, and no one had coloured jimmies or basic flat lollipops. I even went to the post office to ask them where they buy their lollipops. (they keep a basket of pops out for the kids) but, just my luck, they had closed for lunch. Thank goodness for Trader Joes – they carry these organic pops that worked out just perfectly. I settled for coloured sprinkles instead of jimmies.
I also made a poster with all sorts of photos of Davis and a little spiral book. I'll post those tomorrow. Today after school Davis and I are off to the city for a girl's day of beauty. Stay cool everyone. It's really a hot one.
