Hippo twins
Celebrate your baby and pregnancy in neutral style. 

DIY decoration


You will need grey scrapbooking paper, mini paper doilies, a hippo image, double sided tape and glue the image onto the doily. Cut a strip of paper wide enough to go around your bottle with a length that will cover half of the base of the bottle and secure with double sided tape. Using more tape, stick the doily onto the centre of the bottle. 

The activity


Get guests to guess the size of the baby bump. Let them guess the cm, or let them cut pieces of string and measure it later. 

The recipe


The secret to perfect, round cake pops is in the tools. The online store, yuppiechef.co.za, has a couple of tools for sale that will help you create the perfect cake pop. A silicone cake pop pan is an easy way to create these treats. You will need two trays. The one tray gets filled with cake mixture and an empty one gets placed on top before you bake them in the oven. Let the pops cool down, slip a stick into them and dip the pops in melted chocolate or Candy Melts, also available from the store. watch the video on cakepopsrecipe.com to see how you can add some stripes onto the pop and then finish off the look with sprinkles.
