Irish Flag Marshmallow Pops

1 Mar

It cracks me up that kids find anything on a lollipop stick absolutely irresistible. I can't help but notice it at parties over the last couple years, especially as desserts in pop-form have become so popular! [...]

Since this is the week of pink and red desserts, I thought I'd share my crepe cake from the baby shower I hosted back in June. [...]
