I was fortunate to meet one of my favorite bakers a few weeks ago during her book tour. Bakerella a.k.a Angie Dudley is famous for her Cake Pops that are as much fun to make as they are to eat. After the book signing I was inspired to go home immediately and make some owl cake pops. My daughter was having a fall fest carnival at her school and I wanted to bake cupcakes and treats for the event. They had a cake walk that was so much fun to watch as the kids picked out yummy treats and savored every bite. I wish we had cake walks when I was a kid
The owl cake pops were super fun to make. I was able to find all of the decorations at my local grocery store and Trader Joe’s. I used chocolate covered sunflower seeds and fall leaf candy for decorations. I don’t know if it was the temperature or something else, but I’ve had some issues with my cake pops falling apart during the glazing or dipping process. My solution was to freeze the cake balls prior to dipping them in the hot candy. I think the quick freeze makes them stay on the stick throughout the process.
Now for the fun part. Do you want to win your own copy of Bakerella’s new book? Be sure to subscribe to my blog. Then, leave a comment below and tell me what cake pop you would make first. Giveaway winner will be announced on Nov 19th.
