Christmas Cupcake Bites and Cake Pops

I made this for my In-Laws as a small Christmas Gift. I forgot to take a picture of the finished product but I had a few small Christmas baskets and placed about 12 pieces of this inside and then wrapped it with cellophane.

I didn't know which colors would look together so I mixed them up. =)

I guess after making so many "cupcake" pops, it was harder for me to make these regular cake pops in ball form! This should've been easier for me!

As for these, these were just on the table for the kids to grab and eat. I think I made them so many times that my kids are tired of it! Hehe!

If you didn't see my earlier posts about these cupcake pops and want to make them...visit Bakerella to get the full instuctions on how to make one!

Wedding Favor Box

Wow!!! It's almost been a YEAR since my brother's wedding! My daughter was still a newborn at that time so I was occupied with her and being a bridesmaid that I forgot to take pictures! Of course they had a photographer, so I was glad to see this picture when my brother and his wife came to visit recently. (They live in another state). This is the favors I made for them. The box was from Michaels Arts & Crafts. Inside were See's candies...Love those candies!!! Sorry the picture is a little grainy...I took a picture from his photobook..hehe

Now I'm excited to be doing my brother-in-law's wedding invitations and favors for this comming April!!!

Coming soon to Etsy

Coming soon to Etsy! I'm not sure when but I'm figuring out things as I go. I need to fully stock my shop! So far these are the colors I will carry. I also have turquiose but its not shown in this picture. These are 4" Flowers on a partially lined alligator clip. Being on a clip makes them INTERCHANGEABLE on different color headbands, attach on tutus, beanies, etc!

These are 1.5 crochet heabands, great with the flower clips. These are the colors I have so far, again, I have turquoise that is not pictured on here. They fit newborn all the way to adults! Very stretchy!

This is just showing you what the clip on the back looks like.
Each flower comes with a matching lined alligator clip.

Here the TURQUOISE I forgot to include in previous pictures

Zebra print flower on black crochet headband

Zebra print flower on white crochet headband.
See how you can change it! =)
The rest of the picture is just for gallery...just to see what else you can do...

The last two pictures are 2" Flowers. I also have them in brown, purple, white and turquiose. Pictured above is hot pink, blue and lavendar. My daughter likes to wear the small ones as is. hehe
Next year (couple months) I will have crochet beanies although I need it NOW! hehe. And at the end of this month, my shipment of tulles arrive so I can start taking custom orders soon for tutus.
I will let you know when the shop opens....too much details you have to include in each listing! I need time! There's not enough hours in a day!
Thanks for visiting!

Jaela's 1st Birthday Party: Cupcake Theme

Okay...FINALLY the party pictures are here! These are the Wilton cupcake stand, as I said in previous post, I originally saw it on The TomKat Studio. Kim over there is so creative! I was convinced that I need to have one too! I just love how you can decorate it to match anything! Those cupcake toppers are also inspired by her! She is the queen of cupcake toppers aka her party circles.
This is the "Happy 1st Birthday Jaela" banner
I should've done the letters in black so you can see it!
Balloons ordered from
Our little CUPCAKE!
I made her tutu, ordered leg warmers online, and ordered her cupcake iron (for her shirt) on Etsy.
Jaela's Bakeshop
I set up a cupcake bar where the kids can decorate their own cupcakes. Sprinkles were in the cupcake pans, I got the idea from Bake It Pretty. The kids were excited, even some adults participated! hehe. This was such a messy clean-up tho...thanks to hubby and my cousin Krystle for cleaning that!
This was the "To-Go" box for the cupcakes the kids decorated. Inside had a cupcake insert so the cupcake will stay still. I got the template from Martha Stewart's Cupcake Book.
Next we did a game that we call the "Filipino Pinata". My mother-in-law made this. Basically, all the kids get under it and pull as much toys they can get.
And of course the Original Pinata from
The "loot bags" for the kids
These cupcake bites were on the dessert table along with the cake, cupcake stand, lollipop stand and a bowl of marshmallows dipped in chocolate. I was going to do a candy bar but since I did a cupcake bar, I ended up not doing it. On the day of the party, I went to Starbucks to get coffee and while I was in line, I saw the Madeline cookies dipped in chocolate on the top part. It was too late but I got an idea from that, it would have been perfect if I got the cookies from Costco, dipped it in chocolate and added sprinkles. That would have looked like a cupcake cookie! Hehe!!
This is Wilton's lollipop stand. I didn't have time to change the pink & purple lollipop's wrapper from into a plain clear treat bag! My time was pressed! AHH!
Jaela's Birthday cake from Costco, I just added the cupcake bites.
Jaela's photo banner from each month since she was born. I forgot I had to do this. Party started at 2pm but I started this at 1:55 pm! I was late! My hubby had to entertain until I came downstairs! So therefore I didn't get to take "good" pictures before the party started. I was running late with everything even with MONTHS of planning!
This was inspired by Polka Dots & Pirates. Her birthday banners even inspired me too!
Jaela is ONE!!! I can't believe she's already ONE! Time flies especially when party planning!
These were centerpieces on the tables. These are also from Wilton
These were Martha Stewarts FAMOUS pom pom balls. They didn't have her color at the store so I had to make my own. Martha used 8 sheets, but I used 10 to get it more fluffy.
The party favors. Inside are either red velvet cake or yellow cake. These are the famous cupcake pops from Bakerella. Next I'm going to try banana cake dipped in chocolate...yummmm!

There's a couple things I didn't get to do mainly because I FORGOT to set them up but hopefully it gives you some ideas for your party! I was going to have a cupcake coloring contest. I had a picture of a blank cupcake and the kids were supposed to decorate it (color of course). And for the next game I had a picture of the cupcake on a poster board, I was supposed to give each kid a number "1" and they were supposed to place it on top of the cupcake while blindfolded like "pin the donkey" game. I was so bummed when I realized I forgot! I even forgot the Party Hats from that matched the theme!!! grrr!!!
And finally...We'd like to thank you all for those who came
And I'd like to thank those crafty moms who inspired my party! You guys are so amazing and creative!!!!
Thank you TomKat StudioPolka Dot & Pirates, Martha Stewart & Bakerella!!!!
