Happy Thursday ya’ll!! How about some Eyeballs on a Fork Red Velvet Cake Pops? Gross, huh?
This week had felt a little out-of-whack with dentist appointments and other doctor appointments and the weather has changed dramatically and well… I’m just feeling a little off my game.
But the show must go on, so yesterday I got started on my first order of the week 🙂
We don’t celebrate Halloween and I always turn down any orders that I deem too scary or evil or well… Halloweeny, so I’m not sure what possessed me to agree to make these. It was quite awhile back when I put them on my schedule and clearly, I just wasn’t thinking that day.
I guess because they didn’t involve ghosts or witches or skulls or anything I consider super scary … I made an exception. I’m not sure. But that aside, I did agree to make them, so late last night I got started.
It was way too late and I was way too tired to take a zillion pictures (because normally… I really do take a zillion)… so I’m just going to give you a quick run-down of how I made these!
First, I baked this red velvet cake recipe, and then I mixed in some cream cheese frosting to get a good dough texture. You can find out more information about how I do this on this post: How to Make Cake Pops.
I rolled them all up and chilled them.
Once they were set, I rolled out some really thin green fondant and used a small round cookie cutter to cut out the irises of the eyes… then an even smaller round cookie cutter to cut out black fondant for the pupils. I used tiny drops of the melted chocolate to attach them.
When all of that was done, I used a red food marker to draw on the blood vessels. Dipping and decorating 3 dozen of these took me almost exactly two hours (not counting the baking, rolling and chilling). And that’s it!!
