Circus Animal Cake Pops

Animal Cake Pops
Lions, Elephants, Bears . . . Oh my!!!  Well, ok there weren't any tigers in this set of icing decorations but there sure was a roaring ton of cuteness inside.  
I'm thinking Circus Birthday Party?  A day out at the zoo?  Neutral themed baby shower?
These were so easy to make I just had to share them with you.  So here is a photo-play-by-play.
Start with a pack of these adorable icing decorations by Wilton.  I bought mine at Michaels craft store but you can find them at places online like
Roll out your mixture of baked cake and icing with your trusty ice cream scooper.
This Mickey Mouse one rocks!
Melt your candy discs in the microwave on low.  Stir and add a dollop of shortening if too thick.
Dip the candy sticks about an inch in.
Gently push sticks in about halfway through cake ball.  Pop into the freezer for 10 mins. to secure sticks.
Then dip into melted candy coating.
Push party hat in gently at an angle.
Carefully press the animal face onto the front side of cake pop.
Continue on until you have a sweet little animal herd smiling up at you.
I hope you enjoy these as much as my little munchkins do.
More cake pop adventures to come every week.  I'd love to know what you think so please leave your comments!
