My sister, my mom and I had a blast creating the "edible centerpieces" for my sister's engagement party a few weeks ago. They were original, creative and delicious!
To make these centerpieces here are the items you will need:
-all of the ingredients to make basic cake pops
-a mix of longer and shorter lollipop sticks
-Fiskars X-Large Easy Squeeze Punch (The link is similar to the one I bought but not exactly the same.)
-tear drop hole punch (pictured below)
-"Save the Date tags" (that I created myself and so can you!)
-vases of some sort or planter (My sister bought these adorable, purple planters at IKEA)
-styrofoam balls (which I found at Dollarama)
-rocks (also bought at Ikea)
Aren't the tags cute?
My sister just loved them!
I didn't manage to take pictures of the 8 cakes that my mom and sister baked or the huge mess that we made in my mom's kitchen the day after she had a cleaning lady at her house! Nonetheless, the centerpieces turned out very well. See below for some pictures.
Adrienne very neatly arranged each pop into its place in the planter. The styrofoam allowed the sticks to set right into place without moving.
Mazel tov Adrienne and David!
