Amelia Earhart Day

Celebrated for Amelia Earhart's birthday, July 24, 1897, 
today is Amelia Earhart Day!

This famous pilot was the first female aviator to fly solo across the Atlantic and is remembered for never letting anything stop her from pursuing her dreams. Sadly, she never managed to complete her mission to fly around the world in 1937. Her last radio transmissions placed her somewhere around Fiji, and she was never heard from again.

My favorite thing to do to come up with new ideas for my daily posts is to blog surf. I love seeing what people are doing out there, and it really is the best way I get inspired.

In researching today's post I happened upon a fantastic blog: Let's Get Caking!
I found her "Red Baron Cake Pops" which totally inspired my Amelia Earhart. Plus, not to mention the fact that making the old airplanes into cake pops became too time consuming.
Be sure to check out her blog because she has all kinds of great info and tutorials on baking and decorating!


  1. What did you use for those cute eyes?

  2. I used white confetti sprinkles placed on the center of brown M&M's.

  3. I love your Amelia Earhart cake pops! They turned out so cute! Thank you for the link to my blog. I appreciate it.
