banoffee is short for banana toffee pie. usually the crust is made of graham crackers then filled with vanilla custard, bananas, toffee and whipped cream. u can use dulce de leche if u dont have toffee:)

Ideas for homemade baby shower favors--can anyone help?

yup i made some cupcake pops a few days ago and used the recipe for cream cheese frosting on martha's site (link can be found on bakerella.com). you have to add the frosting little by little so that the mixture won't turn to mush. it's fun to eat, not too sweet and well worth the effort.

btw, i used devil's food cake mix (pillsbury) and wilton flower cutter.
