A few months ago, I was introduced to Star Darlings. You can read all about them in my previous post HERE…or here’s a quick recap to catch you up to speed.
ABOUT STAR DARLINGS
Series by Ahmet Zappa and Shana Muldoon Zappa for ages 8-12
Launched in Fall 2015, Disney’s “Star Darlings” is an original series for tweens.
Just like real girls, each Star Darling has her own wish that she pursues with full force and determination—and the help of her friends.
These shared journeys and experiences provide exceptionally positive examples to inspire tweens to follow their dreams, and are experienced through books, dolls, music and apparel, along with a mobile app and animated shorts.
Zoomberry Cake Balls – Inspired by Star Darlings
Kids in Starland grows up loving Zoomberry cake (it’s not a party til there’s some zoomberry cake, after all!), so I figured that it would be fun to create my own twist on zoomberry cake!
Since zoomberries are hard to come by in Maryland, I used strawberries instead (strawberries and zoomberries are the same color, so I figured it would work…). I had so much fun making the Starland classic zoomberry cake into cake balls (with rainbow sprinkles, of course!).
You are going to LOVE how easy this recipe is to make, and how much everyone will rave about your fun and colorful Zoomberry cake balls!
