Mary Poppins Party Idea – A Spoonful of Sugar Cake Pops
If you were to ever ask me what my favorite movie was, I would have to tell you that there were actually two. In no particular order, I would have to tell you Mary Poppins and Beauty and the Beast. I thought last year, with Beauty and the Beast being recreated that dreams were coming true.
Then, I got the news that so was Mary Poppins!! Wait, what?!?
In the sequel, which arrives in theaters this Christmas, Mary Poppins is back to help the next generation of the Banks family find the joy and wonder missing in their lives.
MARY POPPINS RETURNS stars Emily Blunt as the practically-perfect nanny with unique magical skills who can turn any task into an unforgettable, fantastic adventure; Lin-Manuel Miranda as her friend Jack, an optimistic street lamplighter who helps bring light—and life—to the streets of London; Ben Whishaw as Michael Banks; Emily Mortimer as Jane Banks; and Julie Walters as the Banks’ housekeeper Ellen; with Colin Firth as Fidelity Fiduciary Bank’s William Weatherall Wilkins; and Meryl Streep as Mary’s eccentric cousin, Topsy.
The film also introduces three new Banks’ children played by Pixie Davies, Nathanael Saleh and newcomer Joel Dawson. Angela Lansbury appears as the Balloon Lady, a treasured character from the PL Travers books and Dick Van Dyke is Mr. Dawes Jr., the retired chairman of the bank now run by Firth’s character.
Are you excited yet?!
I may have been a little excited because the other day I got in the kitchen to whip up a Mary Poppins style dessert for our kids as we settled down to watch the original. What better for a dessert than a spoonful of sugar?
Now, listen. Dustin and I own our own business. We have five kids. Some days I’m doing amazing to just get kids showered, off to school and fed for the day. Forget about dessert. So when I say these are easy to make. I mean, heck, even I can make them.
You Will Need
- 1 box of cake mix – plus the ingredients needed to make it
- 1 tub of vanilla frosting
- White candy melts
- White sugar crystals
- Plastic spoons
- Wax paper
Mix your cake mix according to your package instructions.
Bake the cake and let it cool completely. In a large bowl, crumble the cake.
Add in the frosting. I use a traditional creamy buttercream frosting. I haven’t tried making it with the whipped frosting, so I can’t tell you how it affects the texture. Mix together thoroughly.
Lay a piece of wax paper on a cookie sheet. Roll small cake balls and place on your sheet. These cake pops are going to have to be a smaller pop in order to fit into your spoon. Place the sheet in the freezer for about 20 minutes until they are set.
(Hint: If your cake mix is hard to roll, place the bowl in the freezer for a few minutes!)
In a small bowl, melt the candy melts according to the package directions. Dip one of your cake pops into the white candy coating.
You want it to be evenly coated, but not dripping.
Add the sugar sprinkles and place back on the cookie sheet.
In your plastic spoon, place a drop of the white candy coating and before it hardens, place your cake pop. Put the spoons on your baking sheet and freeze for a few minutes until it can set. (It won’t take long!)
Sweet. Fun. Spoonfuls of sugar. Literally!
