Have you ever wondered who first thought of skewering small bits of beautifully decorated cake? Turns out the cake pop queen is Bakerella, and the idea first came to her back in 2008. It’s been a few years since I’ve been admiring (and eating) them, and finally got around to making an arts and crafts project inspired by them. Fake pops are easy to make, and adapt well to any theme. The only down side is that they’re not edible.
- styrofoam balls
- wooden skewers
- paint and brushes
- cardboard egg carton or styrofoam base
1. Choose a theme, in this case Picasso, and have a look at some images on the internet or in books.
2. Press a wooden skewer into each styrofoam ball, and begin painting. Once the ball part is finished, paint the skewer. Keep upright until dry, by pressing the skewers into a cardboard egg carton or a styrofoam base.
