Guess the Gumballs Giveaway

Share it!   

I’ve been seeing candy inspiration everywhere lately, however my favorite source so far has been Amy Atlas’ site on event planning.  Here is just a glimpse of one of her signatures; the candy buffet.

 Amy Atlas Candy Buffet

Her images moved me to visit my local candy store, where I found some gumballs and fun swirly lollipops.

These in turn inspired me try my hand at some lollipop sugar cookies…

And of course, there’s the disco dust again.  :-)

I didn’t get to these cookies below yet, but wanted to mention that I’ve got them next on my lollipop wish list: 

 lollipop cookies confetti cakes for kids

They’re from Elisa Strauss’ book Confetti Cakes For Kids.

Cakes are still very new to me, but I’m thinking this one (above) from Planet Cake will be one of the first on my ‘to try’ list. 

Anyways, why am I mentioning all this? 

I was inpired by all this candy fun to do a giveaway.

 

Confetti Cakes for Kids and Planet Cake Giveaway

If you’d like the chance to win a copy of Elisa’s book, Confetti Cakes For Kids, or Paris Cutler’s book, Planet Cake leave a comment below guessing how many gumballs are in the ‘jar’ below.  CONTEST CLOSED.

    @ Nicole:
    I found an image of a lollipop that I liked, projected the image with my KopyKake projector onto the cookie (see the KopyKake tutorial in the tutorial section), piped the white outlines, let them dry, added the colored icing and the disco dust right after.
    If you need the lollipop image email me through my contact form and I’ll send it to you.
    Hope that helps!

    @ Ilenia:
    I found a sugar free recipe for some of these same cakes, i love these but as a diabetic it was great finding ones that didnt use sugar. http://thediabeticyou.com has sugar free recipes.
