Hurry up and hide away! She might be here any minute. Keep the confetti gun and paper streamers ready! 3…2…1…Surprise!

You want to know what’s going on here? Wait, I will give you a hint. The walls are decorated with pink and light blue garlands. And the table is laid with plates and glasses in pink and light blue colors. Even the sweet treats stick to this color scheme. So, do you know, what’s going on?

Exactly, it’s a baby shower.

A big table which is laid with pink and light blue plates and glasses. On the table are cupcakes, the baby Shower Cakepops and the baby bump cake

One of my good friends is recieving a baby in about two months. Finally, a long-awaited wish comes true and that needs to be celebrated. For this occasion I had to contribute my share of pregnancy approved pastries: Baby Shower Cakepops and (maybe my personal highlight) a baby bump cake. Sounds great, right?

Are you ready for some cuteness overload? Then, let’s start with these Baby Shower Cakepops.

Right in the middle of the table are flower pots and buckets where the Baby Shower Cakepops are standing in. In the front are the light blue ones, in the back are the pink ones.

I constructed two different forms to have a bit more diversity: light blue as well as pink, bulgy baby buggies and my favorites, little binky sucking baby boys and baby girls. Yay! Just look at those teeny-weeny details. The blue and pink soothers, those chubby cheeks and the cute selfmade paper bibs.

I can go on for hours finding more and more cute features, but you want the recipe for those Baby Shower Cakepops. Just one more thing. I was looking for cream cheese alternatives and found this easy-peasy recipe from sugarhero-bakery for baked cakepops and tripled the original amount.

Instructions
  1. Beat eggs, sugar, vanilla sugar, yogurt and salt until it's foamy and almost white.
  2. Mix flour and baking powder together, sift it and gradually add to the egg mixture.
  3. Melt the butter in a pot, add it to the egg mixture as well, and stir until well combined.
  4. Grease the cakepop mold (both halves) and spread the dough onto the part without the holes. Put the other half onto it, close it firmly and bake it for twenty minutes in the pre-heated oven (180°C/356F).
  5. Let the cakepops cool down for five minutes within the molds, then let them cool down for an hour on a cooling rack. Before coating them with chocolate, remove the edges with a knife.
  6. for baby buggy Cakepops: Cut a quarter out of the cakepops. (You can eat the rest or use it for later cakepops.) Melt the white chocolate in a pot over hot water, add a drop of blue (or pink) food colouring and mix it. Dip the Cakepop sticks into the chocolate (about 0,3 inch) and then stick them into the cakepops (The part with the missing quartner needs to be on top) and cool it down. Now coat the cakepops with chocolate (Use coconut oil to make the chocolate more fluid). Use a spoon to cover difficult places if neccessary. Let it dry a bit before attaching 4 links from the candy necklace (two on each side)
  7. For Baby Cakepops: Melt the white chocolate in a pot over hot water, add a drop of ivory food colouring and mix it. Dip the Cakepop sticks into the chocolate (about 0,3 inch), then stick them into the cakepops and cool them down. Now coat the cakepops with chocolate (Use coconut oil to make the chocolate more fluid). Let it dry a bit before attaching the sweets. use pink or light blue links from a candy necklace as a soother. It needs to be in the middle of the cakepop. The pink confetti snippets serve as chubby cheeks. Attach one of them left of the soother and one of them on the right side of it. (It's easier to apply these tiny things by using a slightly wet toothpick to pick them up). Das rosa Konfetti dient als Pausbacke. Bringt zwei davon (parallel zueinander) Use teeny-weeny blobs of black and white fondant to form big wide eyes. Place the above the soother. Another teeny-weeny bit of black fondant can be formed into a curl and placed above the eyes. If everything is completely dry and hard, you can add the paper bibs and small hats. Drill a small hole into the tip of your bibs. pull the bib up on the cakepop stick until it almost reaches the cakepop. Wet the inside of the mini cupcake wrappers with a bit of water and attach it to the head.

In case you might want to use my paper bibs, I will provide downloadable Word documents (on request even as pdf):

What about a bib simply saying it’s a boy or one that says  it’s a girl.

If you want to say it in am more figurative way take this bib with a pink baby buggy for a baby girl and this bib with a teddy bear sucking a blue soother for a baby boy.

The pinkish Baby Shower Cakepops are standing in a light yellowish flower pot.

Phew! That’s it! Sorry for this rather longish and quite elaborate entry.

With this in mind,

stay tuned for the baby bump cake.
