“These are a creation of my friend, who has cake pop fever! She gets all sorts of orders for different events and then she makes the pops tie into the theme! I’m just lucky to get to eat, I mean photograph them =) LOL” – Kristen

Um, I guess I haven’t been on this website for a while, as I have been too busy making cake pops! I am humbled and honored to be featured anywhere near Bakerella’s stuff. I will try to come up with a tutorial, but here’s the quick version:

1. Roll your cake mixture into a cylindrical shape – chill
2. Mix yellow candy coating with crumbled chocolate cookie – I used the wafer cookies, but you could also do oreos, etc.
3. Put about a teaspoon worth of the yellow mixture onto a small piece of waxed paper. Make a circle (about 2″) and put the cake down the center. Fold up the sides of the waxed paper and hold until it dries in the desired shape. It’s a bit tricky and takes a little longer for each pop, but the results are worth it!
4. I painted the cake with chocolate coating, then added coconut (dyed green) for the grass, chopped up red sour straws for the tomatoes, and drizzled on orange candy coating for the cheese. You could also come up with sour cream (white melted candy), avocados, or whatever you like to put on your taco. Have fun!
5. After its all dry (might be a good idea to chill it), I peeled it off the waxed paper. I then used a steak knife to put a hole in the bottom for the stick. Dip the stick in your desired candy melt, put the taco on the stick, and there you go. Ole!

For this particular bridal shower, I also made margaritas (with tequila lime cake) and sombreros. I seriously loved this theme!

Thanks for the ego boost!
