Grenade Cake Pops

by | Feb 7, 2012 | Birthday Parties, Cake Decorating | 6 comments

As I mentioned last night, we have a birthday to celebrate today, and the birthday boy ended up asking for a World War II themed party.  Originally he though he wanted a “Deca Sports” theme (10 sports for his 10th birthday) and I started a Board for Sports Themed Party Ideas.  When he changed his mind I never did get back around to looking for and pinning new ideas, I just knew that I wanted to come up with something a little different (and easier) than Captain’s Military Themed Party.

This morning I decided to try and find a cake pop recipe, to use up the extra cake and frosting from his Point du Hoc Birthday Cake, and ended up pinning some Grenade Cake Balls created by The Peppered Pantry.

I had almost everything that I needed to make them, except for the white fondant.   Instead I was able to cut some marshmallows into various shapes to use for the caps and levers.

I only made six, one for each of the kids.  They turned out okay, just rather messy looking and I probably should have used shorter lollipop sticks.   Still, they will be a fun addition for today’s party!

    I bet he loves them! I just got a cake pop/donute hole maker- need to try some cake pops soon!

  2. Aubrey! Nice work, Mama!

    Who would have thunk it? I have never even heard of cake pops! Those are cute.

    Great cake! My son had a army-camo birthday 2 years ago. Love the cake pop ideas.

    Using the marshmallows for detailing was a good idea. Detailing with frosting is quite a bit of a pain!

    Cool idea! I bet they were a hit!

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
