They were so much fun to create as I watched a simple ball of cake come to life.
You have to build these step by step. Layer upon layer. Candy upon candy melt.
The noses and beaks were Mike and Ike's candies.
And the hats were created by "painting" candy melts over an icing decoration shaped like a triangle.
To get that furry look you have to add texture to the smoothly dipped cake pop. You can achieve that by adding another layer of candy melts and "fluff" with a toothpick as it begins to harden. This is a neat way to try your hand at food sculpting!
Just look at the birthday boy loving his street character pop!
