It’s boiling hot in Nashville this week, which got us in the mood for a popsicle party! It’s an easy party to throw, whether it’s for a birthday or just an end of summer bash.
I asked Ella at Ella Sugar Boutique to help out with an idea for the popsicle party, and she came up with an easy-to-follow diy tutorial for popsicle cake pops! We’ll post more party inspiration ideas later this week, but I wanted to get you started with this adorable tutorial. (Here’s how to find Ella on Facebook and Etsy.)
To get started, you’ll need to make a basic cake pop recipe. Make a cake from cake mix using the directions on the box. Then, after it has cooled, crumble it in a bowl and add buttercream frosting until it is a doughy consistency.
Ella did such an amazing job making these popsicles…they are a perfect match for our Swanky Press Popsicle Party Invitation!
Fun Side Note: Both Ella and I are engineers who have taken a creative turn. We hit it off when we first met, but only later realized that we each have two very technical degrees Ella: software engineering and a masters in IT (from Harvard, no less); Me: nuclear engineering and a masters in environmental engineering. We both took our technical backgrounds and ended up with creative careers. I just love the tech+creative mashup, and can’t wait to work on more projects with Ella!
