You might remember me posting in the past about my second favorite hobby... cake decorating!
Well- last weekend was my daughter's birthday and here is her class treats and cake:
For her class treats I made Angry Bird cake pops:
Melt colored candy wafers and dip. Have your various decor ready to build your design while the candy is still melted... using frozen cake cools it fast but you'll have time to work if you are prepared.
I used candy eyes (available in many store's cake decorating section.
candy coated sunflower seeds for the noses. Frosting in a jar (comes with it's own tips) - Betty Crocker for the yellow and red bird's eyebrows. Red peel apart licorice for the black bird's eyebrows. Green m&m's for the pic with a couple black frosting dots on the nose. Packaged them all up and set to school. I am sure those kids had an end of the day sugar rush! I made about 32 of them and you can see them all piled up in the back ground.
For our family party: I popped one of each design off of it's stick and used on the cake:
My daughter LOVED her cake and cake pops so much.
Two days later she requested a dragon cake for her next birthday... in a year... I think I will pray she forgets and picks something else!
