Cake Pops – Halloween Style!

In case you haven’t seen the latest and greatest cake pop craze, here is my version of Bakerella’s fabulous Halloween Pops.  They’re fun and they’re delicious.
I am definitely hooked to making these little guys !!!
I wont bother with the whole recipe since you can find that and more on Bakerella’s site.
But I will say that making the cake balls couldn’t be easier. Anything that starts with a cake mix and some ready made frosting is a winner in my book.

And what’s even better -
it doesn’t matter what your cake looks like cause it just ends up like this!

and then like this

Armed with my candy melts, lollypop sticks and edible pen, I begin the process.

A couple of hours later, a few lessons learned (and a few pops ingested), here is what I came up with.
Thanks Bakerella for your spot-on instructions!

I fully intend on making the turkey cake pops for Thanksgiving, and if they turn out I’ll post them.  Since I’ll be a seasoned cake popper by then, I might try a design all my own!
I thought this looked like a mug shot
