Homemade Cake Pops - What to Do with Leftover Birthday Cake

I hate wasting food. You can ask anyone I know. There are people starving all over the world. So, when it comes to what to do with leftover food from events, I am always thinking outside the box. Searching for what to do with leftover birthday cake, I found that you actually make cake pops with cake. You basically make a cake and frosting then it easy peasy from there. PLUS, cake pops are freezable! So, you could make a bunch of cake pops out of the leftover cake, pop them in your freezer, and save them for a later event or a sweet random surprise treat.

Homemade Cake Pops - What to Do with Leftover Birthday Cake

To make the cake pops, you will need left over cake, or you can make a sheet cake plus enough frosting to cover just the cake. I had a bunch of little bites that were about to expire. There was no way we were going to go through them in time and I definitely didn't want to waste them, so I decided to turn them into Vampire Cake Bites for a Halloween charcuterie board. I also already had some candy coating on hand from when I worked with Chocolate Pen so this basically a no brainer recipe for me to create.

Another year means another party, or maybe a few parties. Kids can be particular, but with these party themes, you’re sure to throw a fun, kid-friendly party that any child will enjoy. Here are the four best party themes to throw your child this year.

And My Baby Turns Four {PJ Masks Birthday Party Ideas}

I had a hard time with this one for multiple reasons. My son is our last "planned" baby. Right now at least, we don't have any plans for another. My husband and I don't know if that will change, but we are content with not having another baby right now. So my son turning four was hard. He officially isn't a baby or toddler anymore.

Another reason this was a hard birthday was because the planning. PJ Masks is a popular theme. There wasn't very much décor out there that fit within our budget. I agreed to do this them before I knew this, but thanks to Pinterest, I found a ton of DIY décor ideas. I don't know about other people BUT when I make things myself instead of buying it, that means more stress. My mother-in-law did help me by making his homemade PJ Masks shirt.

Happy Birthday, Sweet Pea! My Little Pony Birthday Party Ideas

Happy birthday, Sweet Pea! Oh how the years have flown by! My smart, creative, sweet, caring, sassy girl is seven. I am still trying to wrap my brain around it. It feels like yesterday we were bringing her home and totally clueless on this parenting gig.

We do throw parties at our house for our children. We don't buy gifts because we feel like the party is the gift. And both of my kids are totally okay with that. My daughter decided this year she wanted a My Little Pony party.

Celebrating Birthday Milestones in a Memorable Way

This little man turned three and a half last week. I have been trying to enjoy all the little moments with him because he is our last baby. But don't call him that. He is a "big boy" and ready for a full time job and a house of his own. Half birthdays may not be something that everyone celebrates, but it was a fun distraction to keep our minds off of Hurricane Irma for sure.

We had a lot of fun celebrating this sweet Peanut's half birthday. And to him, it's a big deal. He is no longer a "baby" anymore, he isn't just three anymore, he is three AND a half! Netflix helped us celebrate this little man's half birthday in a fun, new way. Not only were we sent cool items to make this fun Red Velvet Cake, but just released today they have 15 on-demand videos that celebrate birthdays and make your kids' day special.

Peanut's 3rd Birthday - Paw Patrol Birthday Ideas

My Baby Boy turned three on Monday. This past weekend we had a fun little party for him. It wasn't as big as my daughter's party, but my son really needs something a little more low key so I didn't invite as many people. This makes year number two that he hasn't cried or even been shy when everyone sang him "Happy Birthday" and I'm so proud of him! He picked out a Paw Patrol theme and we had a lot of fun with it!

We invited everyone through a Facebook invite because with our bunch they tend to be better about RSVPing if the invite is online.
Here is what I put in the description of his online invite:
"All Paws on deck! Mikey is turning three!
Join us on the double for a RUFF-tastic party!"
I think you could use Shutterfly to make some cute personalized invitations with this.

I was fortunate enough to work with Oriental Trading again for most of Peanut's Nick Jr.'s Paw Patrol themed party.

Gotta Catch 'Em All - Pokémon Party Ideas

The holidays are over and done with and went by so fast! My daughter's birthday was 12/9. I cant believe this was her 6th birthday! We celebrated the weekend before. I was going to rent a bounce house, but of course it rained the day we planned her party. I felt selfish for not wanting it to rain when we really needed it. SweetPea ended up getting a stomach virus on her actual birthday and had to miss a day of school. Anyways we decided to have her party at our house and we invited a ton of people, but our new house did very well. And everyone LOVED the Pokémon theme.

Pokémon Party Ideas

We bought her pull apart cupcake cake at Kroger. I think the Pikachu turned out great. We played "Catch the Charizard" game seen above. Which was like pin the tail on the donkey. I loved all the decorations that we got from Oriental Trading. What I love about them is that you can get SO MUCH without spending a ton. Her shirt was made by my mother-in-law since she loves Togepi.

Celebrating Easter & My 30th Birthday #DisneyKids #DisneySide

I received complimentary products to provide this post. All opinions are my own.
Yesterday was not only Easter, it was also my 30th birthday. Yes, I turned the big 3-0. I remember crying, like a lot, when I turned 20 because I was sad I wasn't a teenager anymore. But I wasn't sad yesterday, I was happy and am excited for the journey ahead. We were fortunate enough to be chosen to host a #DisneyKids Preschool Playdate. (Here's a video of our unboxing.) So we had both sides of the family over for Easter and of course all the cousins. We did some egg hunting, had a great meal, enjoyed some cupcakes, and shared the #DisneySide fun.

We started the day off with some egg hunting.

Thomas the Train Birthday Party Ideas

Thank you to Oriental Trading for the decorations and Good2Grow for the beverages to make our baby's day so special.

My baby boy turned TWO on Sunday. I can not believe how fast time flies! We had his party on Saturday so it was easy for my husband to get that day off of work. Peanut is in to cars, balls, trains, and basically anything that rolls, so we decided to have a Thomas the Train Birthday Party! It is such an awesome theme because Thomas & Friends are EVERY where, so there are so many cute ideas out there. We had fun putting this party together and a great time was had by all!
