Sew Sweet! Spools of Thread Cake Pops (Guest Post for Pure Joy Events)

Cake Pops for a Sewing Themed Party
Last week I shared the happy news with you that I'd gotten to contribute treats to the beautiful and imaginative Vintage Sewing Party that Christine of Pure Joy Events threw for her daughter's 7th birthday...and then I promised you a lesson in making your very own edible spools! Well today I'm delighted to unveil my tutorial for these fanciful cake pops as a guest post over on the Pure Joy Events blog. We'd love for you to come join the fun and why not stick around a little longer to browse through the other inspiring party ideas and tutorials available there? If you're in a rush and just want to grab the printable tutorial, you'll find it here.

  28. These are genius, and far too cute to eat! I tried and failed to make cake pops recently, so will definitely have a go at your tutorial - thanks for making it :)

  29. Thanks again, my friends =)

    Aveen, they can be quite tricky at the beginning, the temperature difference between the pops and coating when you dip is important to avoid cracking, and the consistency of the coating is important to avoid the ball falling off the stick (also not stirring the ball around keeps it stable). Let me know if you have any questions :). Good luck!

  36. Thanks all! Shumaila, you are too sweet/funny -- I only did my best to make Christine's vision come true. She's the one who dared to imagine cake pops shaped like spools so she deserves as much credit. And it's really not as hard as you might think :).
