Spot on

I know I just posted Muppet Cake Pops, but I have some more character pops to show you. Hope you don’t mind seeing pops back to back like this. I usually space them out with other goodies in between, but these just went live Wednesday and I wanted to share them with you.

I did them for Target’s recently launched blog, A Bullseye View. It’s a behind-the-scenes online magazine for the brand.

bullseyeview

I’ve gotta say, I’m pretty excited about being able to make cake pops for them and getting to work with one of the stores I’ve shopped at forever. Pretty cool.

And pretty cool that they carry my Cake Pop Kit and Book, too. I actually saw them both at the store yesterday when I was picking up a few things for Thanksgiving. Awesomeness!

target

FYI, the book is on sale if you’re looking to get one.

I get giddy when I see these in stores. Still so unbelievable to me.

Anyway, want to see the cake pops I made?

Think spots.

Bullseye!

Or rather Bullseyes.

Target’s adorable little Bull Terrier mascot in cake pop form.

Visit A Bullseye View to see how to make them.

And if you want to stay on Target, follow them on twitter @aBullseyeView.

Now, I know these are specific and spotted and you’re not likely to have a Target-themed birthday party anytime soon, but you can definitely use these cake pops as a base to create other doggie designs. These are pretty different from the Puppy Pops in my book, so take a look and get your creative juices flowing.

And if you could care less about cake pops, that’s ok, too. You might like this.

When I was at Target, I saw a cute little Bullseye Gift Card at the checkout. So I couldn’t resist grabbing a few to give away with this post.

So here goes.

I would buy myself some clothes. Im sorry if i sound selfish. I had a baby 10 months ago. I finally lost ALL the weight, and then some :) although i am very proud of myself i have yet to buy anything. I feel bad using my paycheck towards myself. So if i win i might actually be able to buy clothes that fit me and aren’t all loose.

Rachael said...

I think I would have to use it to buy Christmas gifts for my family. Money is so short this year b/c I spent it all traveling to cancer treatments. My husband thinks he’s a failure since he doesn’t have a job. (Since this is random, I’m just saying this out loud for me). $100 would go a long way toward easing the stress and burden for just a little while and maybe help make some smiles on Christmas morning.

honestly, i would use it to buy myself whatever catches my eye in the store, regardless of whether i need it or not, because im always giving to others and putting myself last! seems like every day is christmas to the ones i spoil, and now its time for christmas to come more than once a year for ME. and id definitely get something for my dog – hes the one thing thats always by my side and never fails me, so he deserves it :)
