Cake Pops (Apples)

I know after the last cake pop post you are wanting more. 

The sprinkle ones are awesome, taste really good, look really cute, and are probably the easiest type of cake pop to make. But if you are up for the challenge there are some really adorable ideas out there.

My sister-in-law made Bob (from Veggie Tales) for my niece's 2nd Birthday Party. They were  a big hit! Bob is a tomato, but you can do strawberries or apples too. I attempted the apples with some friends on the night of a big snow storm. They were a lot of work. But looked ADORABLE. Also, i was able to bring them to work later on in the week. You know us teachers...we just love our apples!

Some advice about the apples, and cake pops in general. The edible-ink pens are awesome...but only when you get them to work. And they don't work all the time. They usually run out of steam. They are the perfect way to put on small details like eyelashes or a smile. The setback is they are pretty expensive. Keep them upside down and in the fridge between uses. You might want to have a back-up plan too. They probably won't work for all 48 cake pop faces. 

These awesome apples were designed by my friends Kristen & Jessie who braved the snow storm to help. Aren't they talented???
