Happy Friday, friends! In celebration of St. Patty’s Day tomorrow I thought it would be fun to feature a SUPER easy and inexpensive “Lucky in Love” cake pop wedding favor (with a free printable, of course)! These cake pops are so tasty and adorable I’m guessing most of your guests will have finished theirs before they even get their salad.
As with all of our frugal favors, the BEST part is its cost. At around $10 per batch (each batch makes 30-40 pops), these favors come in as low as .33 cents a piece. Not too shabby. Lay a cake pop on each place setting OR use these as your dessert and nix the wedding cake all together. Now THAT’S budget friendly.
St. Patty’s Day Cake Pop Favors
What you need:
- Pre-baked and pre-decorated cake pops
- Small clear plastic treat bags
- Twist ties, cut in half
- White or cream heavy cardstock
- X-Acto knife
- 2″ scalloped-edge punch
- Emerald green ribbon
1. Download your free St. Patrick’s Day cake pop printables. Customize and cut out each tag using the scalloped-edge paper punch. You could also nix the scallop and cut them out by hand. Never used our printables before? Visit our printing FAQ page to learn how to add your own initials to the printables in Adobe Reader (it’s easy!).
2. Assemble your pre-baked cake pops. I followed this recipe, except I used green and white candy melts instead of almond bark to coat my pops. Decorate the pops using your favorite toppings! I used pearl and green sprinkles as well as shredded coconut (my favorite).
3. After the cake pops are fully set, place each pop in a clear treat bag. Tie each bag with a twist tie. Cut off any excess. Tie a bow with the green ribbon to cover the twist tie.
4. Using the X-Acto knife, make two small horizontal slits on the top and bottom of each printable tag. Feed the tag over the top of each cake pop stick (see photo). That’s it! Make sure to keep these cake pop favors refrigerated until the day of your wedding.
- These cake pops work double-duty as a favor and a place card when you write guests’ names on a plain circular tag in your choice of color. Feed the tag over the stick in the same manor.
- These don’t just work for St. Patty’s Day! Brides with green in their wedding color scheme can use these tags any time of year.
