Decorate Photobooth Props

photobooth-props-printablesLooking for easy, simple, cheap and low mess craft activities for your child’s birthday party?

Decorate Photobooth Props – Kids can decorate these printables cut them out and glue them onto wood dowels. Might be good to do this in the beginning of the party so that the glue can dry during cake and presents. After glue is dry it would be fun to take pictures of the kids with their props and email out to parents.

Cake Pop Recipe

Cake Pop Fondue Party ActivityCake pops can be intimidating, but don’t be afraid to give them a try! Really, you just need a bit of time and patience to create some pretty awesome, and not to mention delicious, treats on a stick.

Before you go further, a word of warning. Cake pops aren’t a science – yes, you’ll want to work with a basic proportion of cake to frosting, but once you get familiar with cake pop creation you’ll learn that measurements aren’t always exact. So long as you have the right consistency, your cake pops will be a success.

We’ve put together a really simple tutorial to show you how to make cake pops at home. So, take a peek and get inspired to bake a few!


  • 1 premade cake (we like the boxed version)
  • 8 ounces of frosting (or so)
  • Wilton lollipop pop sticks
  • Melting chocolate
  • Styrofoam block
  • Wax paper
  • Cookie pan

2 3

First, bake your cake. Transfer it to a wire rack to cool and once it’s OK to handle, crumble. You’re looking for a fine texture here with no big clumps. You may have to remove tougher pieces of cake – like the corners or bottom edges. Just eat those!


Once your cake is crumbled, it’s time to mix in your frosting. I find it’s best to use the back of a metal spoon to mix it in. It’s important to remember – you can always add frosting, not take it away, so add about 6 ounces of frosting to your crumbled cake, then add a little more as you go. For a standard box cake, you shouldn’t need more than 8 ounces.


Think about a snowball when you’re trying to determine the perfect consistency. You want something that holds together, but isn’t so wet or moist that it falls apart easily. The consistency you want is one that’s easily molded and will stay sturdy after it’s dipped in melted chocolate.

6 7

Roll your cake and frosting mixture into a ball using the same tried and true meatball technique. Try to get the cake balls into equal sizes by using a teaspoon to measure.


Place the rolled balls onto a wax-line cookie pan. After they’re all made, place the pan in the fridge for about 10 minutes or so. While you cake balls set, melt your chocolate. I like the double boiler method best!


Take your cake balls out of the fridge. Dip the top tips of your cake pop sticks into the chocolate, then insert them into the cake ball. Replace on the wax lined cookie sheet. Do this for every cake ball and put them all back into the fridge for about an hour.

10 11

After they set, reheat your chocolate and once cooled, dip the cake balls into it. You want to dip and turn at once to coat the cake entirely. Place stick side down into a styrofoam block to set.

Repeat for each cake pop and you’re done!

Use Molds: Once you’ve mastered the basic cake ball, try molding some fun shapes. You can do this by hand, but we love the new plastic mini pop molds that make it so easy to do!


Embellish: Cake pops can be embellished with printables, flags, ribbon, edible glitter and other edible garnishes. Get creative and match your cake pops to your celebration’s theme!


Sticks and Straws: Retro paper straws are all the rage right now and they make the perfect alternative to basic sticks.

Have a Cake Pop Party!: Invite friends over to show them how easy cake pops can be. We’ve got the how-to in our post on cake pop fondue.

Cake Pop Fondue Party Activity

Cake Pop Fondue Party Activity


I’ve been making cake pops for a few years now, but it was only recently that my friends finally showed some interest in baking them and not just eating mine.

Rather than show my friends one at a time how to make a cake pop, I decided to have them all over for a little party with these little desserts taking center stage.


A cake pop fondue party is a great idea for a girls’ night in, but it’s also a great activity for kids birthday parties, bridal showers or even dinner parties. Setting one up is super easy and no matter how simple you make it, cake pop fondue is a guaranteed hit among party guests.

How to Host a Cake Pop Fondue Party

Step 1: Set Up Your Space

Ideally, you want to find a spot in your home that’s more open. Guests will crowd around this area and there’s going to be a lot going on, so you want someplace that’s accessible.

Once you’ve got a spot picked out, set up a table and cover it with either a plastic tablecloth, brown paper or other protective cover – this is going to get messy!

Step 2: Lay Out Supplies

Cake pop fondue requires just a few basic supplies – cake balls, dessert sticks or straws, melting chocolate and lots of toppings!


Put out an assortment of toppings – sprinkles, mini marshmallows, graham cracker crumbles and mini candies are all great. Rather than just putting out bowls,  display toppings in some pretty cupcake wrappers. This adds some color to your table and also made it so easy to dip cake pops into toppings.

Cake pop also demands a spot where dunked and decorated cake pops can set up. We used mason jars filled with marshmallows for a prettier look, but you can certainly use the ever reliable Styrofoam blocks!


Melting chocolate is another essential. We used CandiQuik’s milk chocolate and white chocolate for our party and put them in some fun dessert bowls so a few people could dunk cake pops at once.

Step 3: Have Cake Balls Made Ahead of Time!

This is cake pop fondue so you need to have your mini cake balls made ahead of your company arriving.

You can use the traditional method, but there are also products on the market now like the Bella Cake Pop Maker we used that make the process super fast.
