My frozen cake pop Advent Calendar

Our Christmas countdown has started! Creating an advent calendar has always been a tradition in our family and I’m very keen to carry on with it as I love to see my children’s excitement growing daily!


This Christmas will be a special one! We are going to be celebrating with my mum and my sister who will come over from Italy! The last time we had Christmas all together in Scotland was more than 10 years ago so you can imagine our happiness!

In the meantime this week we have been very busy baking (and eating) many, many cake pops! I wanted to create a set of Christmas cake pops and then make a few more (well a bit more than a few) to use them for our edible advent calendar.

Last year, for our Christmas countdown, I made my first cake pop advent calendar and it was such a success so I decided to make another one this year.

edible cake pop advent calendarTo make the Advent Calendar I baked 24 cake pops using a cake pop machine (easy!). I coverd them in white chocolate, sprinkled with light blue sugar and placed on each one an edible number which is made out of light blue fondant. My husband helped me to create the actual tree where we inserted all cake pops and voila! A Frozen Advent Calendar was ready!


Last year we didn’t succeed to make it last till Christmas eve (not even sure if the cake pops last that long outside the fridge lol!) and this year will probably be the same as the kids have already asked to have “one, just one cake pop pleaaaase mummy”.

Christmas countdownTo be honest I  have a backup plan anyway as we’ll actually be filling a second advent calendar, a red wooden one shaped like a house, with little treats and we have a “strict policy” regarding this one: Bee can only open one draw per day and if she opens more than one then the next day she’ll find the draw empty (it happened last year!)

I cannot wait for Bee to come home from nursery today and see her face when she finds out that in the middle of her toys, two treats are waiting for her!

Cake pops are well loved in this family so I guess I have started a tradition of edible Advent Calendars that will make it last in the years to come.

My first blog giveaway – Olaf from Frozen

I am SOOOO excited!! I’m finallly running my first blog giveawaaaaayy!!!

*singing* Da da, da doo, ah bah bah bah bah bah bo

I didn’t really want to give the price away though, it’s soo cuuuuttte and soft… So what did I do? I got a second one! YES! I bought TWO Olaf Frozen soft toys as I couldn’t resist and not give one to my children who adoooore him.

Frozen mania has taken the entire globe and I’m one of the obsessed ones!  Bee and I watch it again and again and most days I find myself singing the same tune “Let it goooo, let it gooooo….” (sorry I know now you are singing it too, and will do for the next couple of hours! 🙂

Although I really would love to keep both Olaf soft toys ;),  I am willing to share the love and give one away (sshhh don’t tell Bee!). I hope you’ll like it and that you will be happy to participate to my first giveaway. 

Olaf is a BRAND NEW (I am not giving away Romeo’s one!) 30cm tall Original Disney soft toy.

Please share it with your friends and if we are going to have lots of entries I am planning to give away another one (again, not Romeo’s one, he’d scratch me otherwise!LOL)
