Valentine’s Cake Pops and Container

I have been hiding a secret. I haven’t had this secret for very long because a friend of mine passed it along to me about a month ago. (Thanks to another Ashley!!) But I can’t hide it in my back pocket anymore. This secret is Bakerella. Ashley brought some cake balls over to my house one day and I fell instantly in love.


Did you check it out?


Do you see what I mean?


And I’m not in any way a skilled baker. These are right about my level though. Small little things and only a few steps.


Anyway, I have been waiting for an Amazon package. This package to be exact. (But mine were only $6.99 NOT $34.99. The seller I got them from are all out. But at least you get the idea. Oh, you use the middle sized flower to make the base of the little cupcake.) It arrived over the weekend and I got right to work to make these…


Yum yum yum!

So thrilling. For me anyway.


And then I thought, why not try some Valentine’s shapes/colors? They’re quite the rage right now…even on other blogs. Why not try some myself? Like these……


And these…


And then I placed them in this…


Which I made using this…


Just open up your pre-made take-out box, trace around it on cutesie paper (you’ll need 2 pieces), cut it out, glue to your take-out box, and fold back up.


Load it up with sweet treats and gift it away. Or snack on them yourself.

Either will do.


Thanks Bakerella….and my friend Ashley!!

    I just stumbled across your blog & love it! You are so creative & have a fun little blog here! I will be back :)


  5. Nate says:

    I LOVE that website! I also made some V-day hearts, though yours look better because I shaped my hearts (didn’t find a heart shaped cutter). I definitely need to use sticks next time, I’m sure that helps with dipping them in chocolate. :) LOVE your cupcake pops though, way cute!! –ash f

    I always admire people like you who are sooo creative. I was just telling my husband last night that I want to learn how to make all these new things and today I was looking through your blog and you already have several of the things that I want to make with great instructions. I love that you have pictures to go along with the instructions. That makes it so much easier for me. Thanks. It is soo fun to learn new things from talented people.

    Bakerella is full of so many yummy things to make! Those chocolates look so yummy (an gluten free I presume). As much as I want to make them I think pulling my whale-of-a-pregnant-body off this couch to make something that will make me even bigger might not be the best option. Maybe you should just bring some to me and then spoon feed me too (cause raising my hand to my mouth is so much work…haha).

    I LOVE Bakerella! I wanted to make the turkey pops for thanksgiving but it looked too hard. I can’t believe how CUTE your cake pops are!!! and the takeout box idea is genius.

  11. Scott and Stef Kelly says:

    Those are the best things EVER!!! I love the chinese food box idea to put them in…

    P.S. Hubba Hubba enjoy! ;0)
