I know I just posted the farm animal cake pops a couple of days ago... but I'm gonna show you some more today. Is that okay? Good!
So, are you ready for Easter yet? I absolutely love this time of year... Easter, Spring, bright happy colors.... you know, all that fun stuff!
I know I am!! Anyway, back in February when I did the Easter cupcakes for the magazine article, I also did cake pops.
I didn't do many... it was 3am by the time I got around to working on them... I wasn't really on my A-game and I was one tired girl.
I was a little disappointed with my work (the whole 3am thing didn't help!), but I sent them along with the photographer anyway. And guess what?
They put them in the article ! See?
They even put the little chick cake pop in the picture in the very front ...the one I totally forgot to take a picture of!
Sooo... they were fun to make, and having never done any cake pops like those before, I did learn a few things. Mainly... don't make cake pops at 3am!
If you'd like to make some cake pops like these... here are the things I used...
- Cake Balls - shaped more oval than round
- White Almond Bark
- Yellow Wilton Candy Melts (or whatever color you'd like to make your cake balls!)
- Lollipop Sticks
- Sanding Sugar or Sparkling Sugar (any colors you'd like)
- Candy Writers (search for "Candy Writers"... or you could use Candy Melts in squeeze bottles with frosting tips)
- Wilton Confetti Sprinkles
Update: If you're new to cake pops, hop over to Amazon and watch the videos by Bakerella on the page for the Cake Pops book. Just scroll down and look for the video clips... in particular, the older one (indicated below) has some great tips and suggestions!! Even better? Order a copy of the book!
