Birthday parties (and holidays) are my thing! I absolutely love going above and beyond for my loved ones. I use to let the kids pick their party themes. However, character parties can get expensive. The last several years I have kept their parties a surprise until the unveiling of the invitations! I do not discuss any details beyond the theme. The kids are annoyed they have to wait, but seem to enjoy their parties even more! There is so much that goes into at-home parties that I am always on a mission to make my life easier while still keeping it fun. Last year when I was trying to prepare for valentine’s day, I learned to make gluten free cake pops. I am so glad I decided to try making them since they have been a big hit! I was a bit intimidated by this adventure since I am a perfectionist. Buying a BakePops pan took away some of my worries.
All 3 of my boys have become obsessed with Legos so creating a Lego party sounded fun.
- Betty Crocker Gluten Free Devil’s Food Cake Mix
- instant chocolate pudding
- 1/2 Cup Milk (half the amount listed on box)
- 4 eggs
- 1/3 cup oil
- edible food writers
- yellow candy melts
- mini marshmallows
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray non-stick spray to BakePop pans
- Mix all ingredients together.
- Pour batter into bottom half of BakePop pan. Use clamps to place top on pan.
- Place in oven and Bake for 15-20 minutes. The trick is you can sample the little bit that overflows 😉
- While you are allowing cakepops to cool, start melting the chocolates.
- Dip cakepop stick into melted chocolate to add to cakepop. Place in freezer to speed up setting chocolate.
- Cut mini marshmallow in half. Use a little bit of chocolate to adhere mini marshmallow on top of cakepop for top of lego head. Place in freezer.
- Once you have repeated Steps 5 & 6 for all of the cakepops, you can cover them completely in the yellow chocolate. Return to freezer.
- Use edible food writers to make the faces!
Lego mini-figure and block crayons were a success. See how to make them here!
