My favorite princess of the baking world, Bakerella, has done it once again. I was so excited to see her that she is sharing some fabulous Easter Cake Pop creations! Words cannot even describe the pure cuteness so here are her masterpieces:

Bakerella’s Chick Pops are adorable! She also has a few other version of this edible birdie.

EGGstraordinary! These Easter Egg Pops are so clever!

Ooooh how I am loving these Bunny Cake Pops too! The only trouble is I cannot decide which ones are my favorite (I know problems right?)! So help me decide, which cake pops would you make for Easter? Please help or I will be one baking fool the night before our Easter party!

Be sure to check out Bakerella for all the instructions and many more fabulous ideas…be warned though- all of her creations are this cute!

Saint Patrick’s Day Drink and Treat

This Saint Patrick’s Day try this drink and dessert in one! Ice cream and a cocktail? What could be better…

You’ll need Vanilla Ice Cream and your favorite Stout Beer

Scoop ice cream into a pint glass, and pour in enough stout to fill it. One pint of ice cream and one 12-ounce bottle of beer will yield 2 servings.

See how to make these cute shamrock drink stirrers!

Hostess Tip:

To keep your hostess duties stress-free, I suggest you chose a festive drink recipe to serve during your party (at the most two) rather than making several different drinks to serve. This will make your bar-tending duties much easier. Also, if you plan to serve a martini recipe, you can make a large batch of drinks ahead of time in a glass pitcher (just measure in cups rather than shots) then when guests arrive you can just stir, and pour into the shaker when needed. SIMPLE!
