Easter Pops

Last Friday, Heather came over and we tried our hand at making Bakerella's Easter pops. I am always in awe of all of her cake pops, so I decided that I could do them. NEVER again!! It was such a tedious task and unless God grants me A LOT more patience, I don't think that I will ever make them again.
I had the cake cooked and had all of the cake balls rolled and in the fridge when Heather got there, so we started dipping them in the candy melts.
I decided that I wanted to do the chicks and the eggs. Some of them did turn out really cute, but I must admit that about 80% of the cakes got thrown in the garbage. I don't know what I did wrong, but they were all falling off of the sticks. After that, I just decided that instead of dipping them, we would just paint the candy melt on them. Once they dried, we carved off the excess and started decorating. I apparently thought I had waaaay more patience than I really do, so we finished about a dozen chicks and 2 eggs.

They looked really cute in the baskets that I fixed and my family loved them when I took them over on Sunday for lunch. Here are a few that fell off of their sticks:

See, they turned out cute, but as I said- no patience!

Even tho not all of them turned out I am super impressed! It takes time to learn a new skill, but I know what you mean. When I try something I want it to be perfect (or nearly lol) the first time.

I think they are totally adorable and I bet your family was impressed to!
