1st Day of School

All 3 of my kids started school this morning and all at 3 different schools. I decided to make apple cake pops for the teaching staff at my daughter's school. I didn't have enough time to make apples for the jr high and high school staff. LOL
I used the Bakerella cake pop recipe found here. If you have not visited her website, you must! She is a genius and has a book coming out next month all about cake pops.
I used tags from Parties by Hardie. I used the same set for a back to school party for my Brownie troop.
These are what the pops look like. Since I made my cake pops at night with terrible lighting, I'm using Bakerella's beautiful picture.

Sheridan even got to hold the sign for the teacher. Mrs. Candib was Chasen's teacher in 4th grade as well. She is our school rep for the music center in Los Angeles and is very into the arts and performing (she used to work on Broadway in NY and her hubby is a fim editor). The kids learn a lot in her class, participate in a recycling program and take an end of the year trip to Fort Tejon to live like soliders from the 1870's for a few days.
Chasen's 6th grade teacher from last year called him last night to wish him good luck at his first day of jr. high. We have such amazing teachers at our schools. We are so blessed and that's why I made the pops for them. I'm so glad that they are part of my children's lives.

You always have the cutest ideas.

Down here we don't go back to school for about three more weeks.

I can't wait...peace and quiet during the days when the kids are all gone and then at night they go inside early to do homework and go to bed :)

Now if it just stays cool like it has been I'll be a happy camper.

Super cute! Your pops turned out great; I'm envious because we can't bring homemade treats for the students. Sigh.
