Baby Shower Cake Pops

Some friends of mine were throwing a double baby shower and asked me to help with a dessert. Since one of them is having a girl and the other a boy, I had to think of something! 

I decided to make some upside down cake pops. I used pink candy melts for the girlie ones and polka-dotted them with pearl candy balls. I used brown candy melts for the boy ones and used blue candy melts in a squeeze bottle to drizzle over them.

Overall, I enjoyed making them for the shower! 
The guests loved them.

"The world doesn't need another band, per se. It doesn't, strictly speaking, need another book or another photograph or another album. The general world population will survive without one more stage production and one more gallery showing. 

This is the thing, though: you might not. We create because we were made to create, having been made in the image of God, whose first role was Creator. He was and is a million different things, but in the beginning, he was a creator. That means something for us, I think. We were made to be the things that he is: forgivers, redeemers, second chance-givers, truth-tellers, hope-bringers. 

And we were certainly, absolutely, made to be creators."
