Halloween Cake Pops!

One thing I’ve seen LOADS of on Pinterest recently is Halloween themed cake pops, so I decided I wanted to give them a go myself. Now I don’t know if you’ve seen my previous cake pop attempt (here) but I really wanted to try again using the tips I received after the last failed attempt.

I used the exact same recipe as last time which can be found here however this time I decided to make the cupcakes a green colour (they look more like brown though!).

 When they were cooked, I let them cool, then stuck the cake pop sticks into them using a bit of melted chocolate to secure them. I then put them in the freezer overnight. This was a tip I received and I am so glad I did it this way! My problem last time was that the cakes crumbled when I coated them so by using frozen cake pops, I didn’t have this problem.

I decided to decorate the first half to look like mummies to keep with the Halloween theme. I simply dipped the pops into white chocolate, then when the first layer had cooled, I drizzled lines onto them to resemble bandages and then added a couple of ‘eyes’ with black icing.

They look so cute! I am really pleased with how they came out.
I then decorated the second half of my cake pop batch to look like pumpkins. I couldn’t find any orange gel colouring at late notice so they’re more of a peach colour, but I don’t think they turned out too bad, and they were really easy.

Once again I added features using a black gel icing.
I can’t believe how easy these were to do, especially now that I know to freeze the cake pops before decorating them, I can’t wait to try some different designs! (Maybe Christmas ones?!)
