Yesterday I decided to get a little adventurous. I'm not much of a baker, but for some reason I really wanted to try making some Halloween-themed cake pops. Turns out they're not too terribly hard, although I definitely lost a few along the way due to being just too darn ugly or falling apart.
But 9 of them came out pretty cute. Red velvet mummy cake pop, anyone?
these instructions. And this was my inspiration for the mummy design, although I obviously tweaked it. I couldn't find those candy eyes, so I used black gel instead.
I definitely over microwaved my white chocolate pieces at first, so they became crumbly instead of smooth and liquidy. So I had to dump it and start over. And also, I wanted to drizzle the chocolate so it looked like wraps, but I have no clue how you would ever be able to dip those things without having the balls fall off the stick. They got pretty heavy and the stick kept sliding right through the cake.
But overall I'm pretty happy. I like that the red velvet shows through so they look a little more gruesome. haha And most importantly, they tasted amazing with just the right amount of white chocolate coating them.
I've got one more Halloween post coming up. We have a costume party tonight, so tomorrow I'll post some pictures of our costumes. :-)
