Photo Dump

Since I can't remember to update and post on a regular basis I figured I'd share several pictures from my phone.  Most of these are picture of cake pops I've made over a year ago.  I've slowed down on the cake pops since I've moved.  Starting this week I'm cleaning out my sewing/ craft room so hopefully I can get back to sewing.

These were cake pops I made Halloween 2014 for my daughter's 1st grade class.

Not cake pops but this was a first for me..... Valentine Boxes for my 3 younger kids to collect their Valentine's Day Cards in.  I made all 3 in two days.

Angry Bird... forgot his name.  Covered with red wrapping paper, facial features created with felt and the hair on top is made from a stiff felt sheet.  The opening slit is on top.

This Uni Kitty was my favorite!  My daughter loved it.  I covered this with pink plastic table cloth from the Dollar Tree, facial features were cut from felt and the light pink is flannel, I folded card stock to make the ears and covered it with pink felt, the horn base is a cut piece of toilet tissue roll covered with white card stock and the top is a light blue felt.

This is a take on a Nintendo 3DS. There is a slit opening at the top of the screen and the bottom front.  It's covered with blue wrapping paper, I used a silver marker to do the writing, my son found pictures from the internet for the 2 screens and the gray button is from a foam sheet.  To make the buttons look raised up I glued the cut out pieces on a piece of foam.

Okay, now back to the cake pops!  All these were made over a year ago.  This Luau Themed cake pops was my favorite!!!!  Brown sugar is used to look like sand.

Cake pops I made for my youngest son's birthday snack at school for his 1st grade class.

Stoles I made for a program.  Love, love, love the gold trim!

Wished I could have made these for my daughter's class this past Easter but I just didn't have time.  Maybe next year....

For 3 year old twins!

Made for my kid's art teacher at the end of the 2013-14 school year.

School birthday snack for my oldest son last school year.  Wildstyle's ponytail was shaped from a tootsie roll.

Bowling Balls and Pins!!!


I had a great time creating these for my son's best friends birthday!  His party was at a Children's Explorium and had a Mad Scientist theme.

Ninjago!!!!!  Another school Birthday treat for my son's class.  This was 2 years ago.

This was my 3rd time making Sponge Bob cake pops.

This was the first time I made my cup cake cake pops using this particular mold for the bottom.

Saint Patrick Cake Pops!  3 Leaf Clovers and GOLD!!!!

Costumes for Dr. Seuss Parade - Thing 1 & Sally

The Kindergartners participate in a Dr. Seuss Parade each year at my kid's school.  They have to pick their favorite Dr. Seuss book, do a verbal book report in class and dress up as their favorite character for the parade.  I'm behind so I'll recap the costume I made for my soon to be 2nd grader when he was in Kindergarten and my soon to be 1st grader from this past school year.
My son wanted to be Thing 1.  Pretty simple!  I got the idea for the blue hair from this tutorial at  Aren't they the cutest babies?!?!  It was pretty simple.  Since it was a year ago I'm kind of foggy on the Thing 1 template but I think I found it online and brought the wording/image into SCAL and cut out the stencil on my Cricut.  I stenciled it on a piece of white knit fabric and sewed in on a red turtle neck.  VOILA!

Okay, now this past year my daughter wanted to be Sally from The Cat In The Hat.  I used the picture of Sally that was on some fabric I bought from Hancock to help me get started.  I  already had the pattern, which was a skirt and suspenders and added a little touch of ribbon on the back of the suspenders.  She wore it with her white uniform blouse.  I created the red striped tights (just to give it that Dr. Seuss feel) the same way I created the tights from the Strawberry Shortcake costume.  I topped the costume off with a red bow.  I made her tote bag using the fabric from Hancock.  It was pretty big and loaded it down with all kinds of throws for the parade!

Princess Tiana Cake Pops

I made these cake pops for a little girl's Birthday.

Yellow cake pops with green swirls and a purple flower.  Each has a Princess Tiana tag.

On top of this display is a Princess Tiana cut out on a large yellow cake pop with green petals; the rest were yellow cake pops with green loops.

Dance Cake Pops!

I had an order for 40 cake pops a few weeks ago.  The Mom wanted them for her daughter to pass out on the first day of Dance Camp. I found a ballet slipper and dancer mold online that I purchased.  I thought that they were smaller than they were and was just going to put them on a round cake ball.  But b/c the size was about 1 7/8" that wouldn't work.  So I used an oval fondant cutter and shaped each cake ball into an oval shape.  Dipped the cake pop in white chocolate and placed the hot pink ballet slippers/ dancer on.  I bagged them and tied each with two strips of hot pink tulle.

I should've placed them in the bucket randomly so both types could be equally seen.  But I was so tired by the time I finished that I just squeezed them all in there and just to get it done!!!
Not the best picture but they turned out really nice!

The dancer mold had an oval background to it that I did in white.  This is what gave me the idea to use an oval shape cake pop.

I tied some tulle on the handles of the bucket to finish off the look!

Grass Cake Pops

I had to make some cake pops for a friend who was having a Birthday Party for her Dad.  The theme was gonna be Safari/ Military.  She found an idea for grass pops here in which they used green coconut to represent the grass.  I figured green sprinkles would be better since everyone doesn't like coconut.  So here is what they look like!

I purchased the crate from Michael's and bag of grass from Hobby Lobby.

Cowgirl HK, New Business, Lotsa Cake Pops!

So I haven't been doing much sewing lately.  The last thing I sewed was this purse for a little girls 9th birthday.  I've had this Cowgirl HK and horseshoe fabric for a long time.  So glad that I finally used it.  This is a pretty large bag, one of the largest I've made for a little girl.  Approx size is 18x16 in.

I also started my own business!!!!!  So far I've made basically cake pops but I plan to do a little bit of everything.  Check out my FB Page at Rated: PG the Perfect Gift.

I made 50 cake pops for a little girl's 1st Communion.  They were all white with swirls and a silver cross.  The cross is drawn on with white chocolate and painted with Wilton's Silver Pearl Dust.

Here is where I made Ice Cream Cone cake pops for the first time.  I LOVE these.  I ended up making some for all 4 of my kids end of the year parties and I had one order for a teacher's class.

Ice Cream on a stick!
