Now...on to the cake ball pops!

My boyfriend is in the process of buying a house and a few weeks ago we showed our realtors my blog. She asked if i could make her something for an open house that was coming up. After discussing we decided on cake ball pops since they are easy to display and have very little mess and clean up.
The pops before I packaged them.

All packaged up and tied with a pink ribbon.

I filled the glass vases with M&M's and mini M&Ms. We did one vase of red velvet pops and one with vanilla pops!

I heard they were a huge hit and I think I might have gotten another customer out of it! So thanks again Sharon & Buck I really appreciate it!!
