Recently we had a card game night with some friends. I made some cake pops for dessert and decided to make them more “card game” themed. So I took out a couple of my decorative punches from my scrapbook days and made some little signs for the cake pops. So I took my heart punch and punched some red and black cardstock to make some heart and spades.
Then I used a larger circle punch to make the little signs for the pops.
I glued the hearts on the circle like this:
To make the spade, I just added a little marker for the stem. To keep it simple, I didn’t make diamonds or spades, but they would not be hard to do by modifying a square to make a diamond and small standard hole punch to make clubs. Then I punched two holes in opposite ends of the circle with a standard single hole punch.
For the cake pops, I decorated them with white coating and then used these sprinkles to get the card color theme going.
When the cake pops were set, I put the labels on and attached a ribbon to each.
These pops would also work for a family card game night, a poker night or a Vegas-themed evening. We play different card games, but one of our favorites is Back Alley. It is a fun bridge-like card game that you play with teams. We play girls versus the boys. Each team won once…stay tuned for the rematch. Do you play cards? What do you play?
