Forget the cake…do animal cookie pops!
This smart party idea came from one of my Zoo School moms who has an at-home baking business.
Forget the boring, traditional birthday cake with the tinted, whipped shortening they like to call frosting. Forget the aggravation of having to cut and serve the cake, as swarms of kids squeal around you and the frosting gets packed under your new manicure. Forget the mess of chocolate cake crumbs and overturned paper plates scattered all over your clean carpet. Instead, opt for an animal-themed cookie pop for your next Zooniversity party! These cute-as-can-be home baked cookies come on a stick, neatly wrapped in plastic and decorated with ribbons. These are the neatest idea we’ve seen to replace the cake mess. Even a better idea…send them home as a special party favor. Home baker and mom, Wanda Vigil, will make just about any animal theme — you provide the picture and she’ll sketch it cartoon-style in buttercream (yes, real buttercream). She’ll even put the kids’ names on them. Cookie pops are priced at $1.50 each and there’s no minimum order. She also is a wiz at cupcakes and traditional cakes, too. Pick-up is at her Garland home. To order, send Wanda an email or call her at 972-681-0298.
