There are so many fun ideas out there for cakes, drinks, and treats. Some of them can get a little overwhelming but we think that you will like today’s idea and how simple it is. Kids always love balloons so You Make My Heart Pop! will make everyone happy.
In order to decorate your cake you will need the following (the links will take you to Just Artifacts supplies):
There are so many variations to this idea that you can do, but we did a small 6 inch cake with a bunch of mini cupcakes to go around it. we absolutely love mini cupcakes because they’re the perfect treat without being too rich. So depending on how you want to do it will determine how many straw decorations you will want to make. Not every cupcake will need something and each one can be at different heights so have fun with it. Once you have decided how many you want you can cut the straws to the different heights that are needed.
We cut up hearts in all different sizes. Some big and some little. For the little cupcakes we taped the back of the hearts to the straws and stuck them in the cupcakes.
Since we had a little cake we used one little balloon, but with a bigger cake it would be really fun to do more balloons and blow them up bigger. Once the balloon was blown up to where you want it, use the twine to tie it to a straw. This part got a little tricky because I didn’t want the balloon to flop around. We tied it on and used a small piece of scotch tape to tape the back of the balloon down onto the straw. Since we knew no one would see the back of the cake or touch the cake we knew it would work, and it did. So you will just need to play with it a little to get it where you want it. you can add a “pop” onto one of the hearts on the cake. And that’s it!
Along with the cupcakes and cake there are so many fun ways you can incorporate this theme into your parties. Just picture lots of hearts and lots of balloons. You really can’t go wrong. What other ideas would you add to this theme? Are you having a Valentine’s party this year?
