Curious George Party with LOTS of fun food ideas!

My youngest turned 2 on Sunday and we had a full week of Curious George fun food! We had a simple party for him at home. I didn’t have big parties for my other 2 boys until they were 3 and I like to keep things equal (as much as I can). We invited 1 guest (his uncle Brian). The funny thing is …uncle Brian not eat any sugar. This left our neighbors with some George goodies!

He is the biggest Curious George fan so we wanted to give him a special George party. Since we didn’t have any guests other than my brother who lives here in Atlanta we just decorated with things I had laying around the house. It’s nothing fancy, but he loved it!

We made Curious George & Yellow Hat Cake Pops, Yellow Hat Twinkie Cakes, Popcorn, Bananas, & and George Smash Cake!

Here is my happy Birthday Boy!

Curious George Cupcake

This is our second attempt at making cake pops and we had fun making them. We always seem to come up with a different way of doing things compared to others, but it worked well for us and made things so easy!

Here is how we made the Yellow Hat Cakes…..

This is the easiest thing you will ever make! We purchased mini shortcakes at Kroger . We flipped those over with the bottoms facing up. We cut a Twinkie in half and placed them on top. We wrapped a berry fruit roll up around the bottom of the Twinkie. That’s it!

George Smash Cake

Curious George Smash Cake

We made a large cupcake using part of cake mix. We used vanilla wafers for the ears. We spread chocolate frosting on the top of the face. We tinted white frosting with just a little bit of the chocolate frosting and spread that on shaping the face. We used edible eyes and chocolate cookie frosting to make the mouth/nose.

This was our second attempt at making cake pops. They are fun to make and the kids love them!
To make Cake Pops all you do is bake a cake. Smash the cake up using a fork and mix with a can of chocolate frosting. It’s SO easy! We actually split a little off of our cake mix and made a large cupcake. I wanted my 2 year old to have his own little George smash cake.

How To Make Yellow Hat Cake Pops

Remember that this is our second attempt at making cake pops so we are not experts at this. However this seemed to work out well for us and we wanted to come up with a different and easy way to make these. We used a brownie pop silicone pan (you can get them at Michaels). I have had this pan forever and have used it once. Never made brownie pops, but wanted to find other uses for it. We started out by lining the holes with our yellow candy melts like this…

Melting Yellow Candy Malts

We let that dry and pressed our cake pop mixture in the holes up to the top like this….

Putting The Cake Pop Mixture in

We melted more of the yellow candy melts (use directions on the bag) and made circles on wax paper using our spoon. Let it dry for a few minutes and then poke a hole in the center before it’s completely dry like this…

melted more of the yellow candy melts

You then want to remelt your candy melts just a bit. Pop out the hats from the pan. Spread more of the candy melts on bottom of the cake pops (where the cake mixture is showing) and cover. Push the lollipop sitck in the hole of your candy circles with the flat side facing up. Dip the tip of the stick in the candy melts (this helps the cake pop to hold better on the pop). Poke the stick through the bottom of the cake pop and p press the candy circles on the bottom. Place it back in the pan to let it dry.

We used black cookie frosting (Betty Crocker) to make our bands around the hat. However, it just didn’t work very well and looked a bit sloppy to us. We would recommend piping on dark chocolate or regular frosting. The cookie frosting just didn’t want to stick.

Yellow Hat Cake Pops

Here is how we made the Curious George Cake Pops…

We started out by taking our cake pop mixture and shaped 1 1/2 inch balls. Place them on waxed paper on a pan. We place them in the refrigerator while we made the faces. We made our faces by using caramels. We thought it would be easier this way and it was for us. All you do is put a caramel in the microwave for 4 seconds. Flatten it using your fingers. We cut our the first one using kitchen scissors and made sure if was the right size on the cake pop. We used that caramel cut out as a guide to cut out the rest. We did the same using the caramel scraps to make the ears and nose. We decorated the faces before putting them on the pops. We used chocolate cookie frosting to make the mouth. White cookie frosting to make the eyes & mini chocolate chips for the pupils. We used a red sprinkle to make a tongue on the cut out open mouth. They will look like this…

Curious George Faces

It will look like you are making E.T. pops, but will turn into a monkey face once you press them on!

Melt chocolate candy melts and dip the tip of your lollipop stick in the chocolate. Poke them in the cake pops. Then dip the cake pops in the chocolate. We poked holes in shoe boxes for them to stand up and dry. We then attached the faces and ears using a little bit of the melted chocolate. We wrapped brown pipes cleaners starting bottom of the head working down..then going back up to make the arms. We shaped a banana from lemon Tootsie rolls and placed them in the hands. You could also use Starburst.

Used Pipe Cleaners For The Arms and Starburst For The Banana

    I love your party!! Especially the yellow hat cakes. I have a question did you put any kind of frosting to stick the twinkie to the shortcake? Thanks! I pinned all of the pictures!

  2. These are all wonderful ideas!!! It has helped me out a lot for my sons first birthday!! Thank you!

  3. Hi Nadia! Click on the Bakerella link above in the post on how to make the cake pop mixture. You just bake a boxed cake mix and mix frosting in it. Melt the yellow candy melts and paint the inside of the molds. Let it dry then add the mixture.

  4. Great ideas! I'm going to try and make the Yellow Hat Pops. I just have a few questions about baking them. Did you melt the yellow chocolate before you put it into the brownie pop pan? In the picture it looks like it is. What recipe did you use to make the batter? Can I just use a regular brownie recipe? How long did you bake it for? Thanks for your help! I hope they turn out well.

  5. Great ideas! I'm going to attempt to make the Yellow Hat cake Pops. In the picture it looks like you melted the yellow chocolate before you put it into the brownie pop pan. Was it melted? And then how long/temp did you bake the brownie mixture for? Thanks for your help.
