March 5th is my friend's daughter's 3rd birthday. This year, she (the almost 3-year old, not the mom) chose a Minnie Mouse theme for her party. Although I'm not going to make it to the actual party this year (it's a Sunday, and it's my Sunday to work), I couldn't not supply some Minnie Mouse-themed treats for the party.
I discussed with my friend R what I'd make for the party. We decided on Oreo pops for the kids, and some mini cupcakes (for the adults) to supplement the party-supplied "kids only" cake. But that post will be up later...
I went to my trusty baking store to buy some Minnie Mouse sugar decorations for the Oreo pops, as well as a few other goodies, and bought out the last 3 packages.
When it came time to make the Oreo pops, I saw some bright pink and white striped paper straws that I had bought for my friend's 30th birthday party, but that were never used. I cut them in half and used them instead of lollipop sticks for half of the Oreo pops.
Then, I did what I always do with Oreo pops....I wrapped them in clear bags and tied them with (bright pink) curling ribbon, curled the ribbon, and voila! adorable Minnie Mouse-themed Oreo pops!
Now, I've made Oreo pops a bunch of times in the past. This post seems to be the best at how I did it, along with other sites that have directions. It also happens to be that that post will take you to what I made for this same little girl for her 2nd birthday!
