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!
How do you make Halloween Cake Pops?
- Bake this this red velvet cake recipe.
- Make a half batch of this cream cheese frosting, or less (you'll only need a very small amount).
- Follow this tutorial for How to Make Cake Pops.
- Roll them up, chill them.
- Then, using forks instead of lollipop sticks, I dipped the cake balls in white candy melts - my favorites are white almond bark or Candiquik.
- Once they're set, roll out some really thin green fondant and use 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.
- Use tiny drops of the melted chocolate to attach them.
- Use a red food marker to draw on the blood vessels. And you're done!
For reference, dipping and decorating 3 dozen of these took me almost exactly two hours (not counting the baking, rolling and chilling). And that's it!!
