Cake Pops!

Our church put a baby shower on for Colleen and Peyton yesterday.  I was in charge of food, so I enlisted the help of my mom to make Cake Pops!  We had so much fun planning and making these, and I think everyone enjoyed this special touch to the shower. 

The theme was Yellow & Pink

The flavors!

The food table.  Ellen brought fruit salad.  I made homemade cheese crackers in cheddar & parmesan.  Amber made the pink punch, Michelle did the coffee punch, and Mom brought the lemonade.   I think it turned out great!  (Heather did the decorating)

That looks awesome! Your family is very talented! Could you (no rush) send me the recipe for the coffee punch that sounds awesome! I wouldn't mind the cake pop recipe either, as that would be a great birthday treat for Emma's kindergarten class! (B-day not till January) If it is a secret family recipe, I understand! :)
