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.


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!


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.




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.


Enter for a chance to win one of three (3) $100 Target Gift Cards.

  • Just leave a comment on this post and tell me what you’d buy. Electronics, toys, groceries, Christmas gifts, clothes, candy? Do tell.
  • Deadline to enter is Sunday, November 20th at 5 pm ET. SORRY, TIME’S UP!
  • Three $100 winners will be chosen at random and announced sometime Sunday evening on this post.

Good luck.

Ruff. Ruff.

P.S. This giveaway is offered by and sponsored by me.

Okay, I just picked the three winners of the $100 Target Gift Certificates. Yay! Yay! Yay! And here they are…


Congratulations Marianna, Corinne and Suzanne. Have fun shopping!

Linda said...

First I would like to say, your cake pops are amazing!!! and what I would do with the gift cards is buy toys for a charity. Right now so many familes are in need right now, and can’t afford to get their kids toys or winter clothes, that’s what I would do with the money.

November 20, 2011 07:42 PM
Blayne said...

Oh man!!!! I was shopping at Target and missed this post!!!! Cute bullseye pops! I would make these for my fellow Target Team Members. They’d love them!!! Maybe I’ll wait until after Black Friday madness though.

I was just there today and finished our holiday shopping! So I would “fill in the gaps” after the holiday. But my secret agenda is that the kids and my husband get everything they want so I could just buy clothes for myself…

I think I missed the deadline but being that I love Target and live by the philosophy “if I can’t get it at Target I don’t need it”, I still want to play. I would buy Giada de Laurentis’ set of stainless steel pans. I have been eyeing those for quite some time!

I bought Wilton candy melts for my cake pops but when melted, the chocolate is way too thick. How do I thin it out without ruining my chocolate? I have seen the video of Bakerella and Martha making cupcake pops and the candy melts melt perfectly and have the right consistency. Any advice??? PLEASE help me. Thank you in advance.

How about christmas gifts for less fortunate children. In Hawaii we have this project called ‘Lokahi’, you give your unwrapped gift to them and they give it to children who are not fortunate to get gifts or even a home. I know the contest is over, but I thought I’d share.
