Balloon pops anyone?

I will never make these again! I know I’ve said that before, but this time I mean it!

My 10 year old came up with the idea of “water balloon” cake pops. Sure, why not. How hard could they be?

Turns out, very! It was difficult to shape them, then I came upon the idea to use a Hershey’s kiss for the tied end of the balloon…then came the part I dread the most and the part I am really bad at: the dipping.

After a glass of this,

I became a pro.

A pink and blue balloon…looks like I’m making them for a baby shower.

All done! Candles are blown out and the kids are clamoring to eat them.

In a wine inspired moment I sent hubby out to buy licorice to make balloons on a string. The one good thing about this type of birthday cake—no cutting or utensils required!

I agree! They are so cute, but such a pain to make! But worth it in the end???
