Here they are. The first of the Easter Cake Pops. I’ve had lots of requests over the last few days for these, so I spent some time working out ideas for you guys. I’ll show you the others in the coming days.
But for now, it’s… Chicks, man! (Pretend I’m Joel McHale from Talk Soup when you read that. It’s much more effective.)
Here’s how they look on pink.
On yellow… (I love spring!)
And here, I just played around with a few different designs.
I’m leaning towards just the head. But the little feet are so dang cute. And if the eggshells came off looking a little better, those might be the winner. Big head? Big bottom? All body? Or no body? Whatcha think?
Anyway, if you want to make some, follow the instructions for the basic cake pops .
You’ll need the following supplies:
Cake and Frosting
Yellow Candy Melts 
White Candy Melts 
Paper Lollipop Sticks 
Black Edible Ink Pen 
Styrofoam Block 
Paramount Crystals 
Rainbow Candy Coated Chips 
Pastel Wild Flower Sprinkles 
Diamond Shape Sprinkles 
To decorate solid yellow chicks:
Note: to get smoother covered pops, make sure your bowl is deep enough to submerge the entire pop. Try to dip it in one dunking motion and remove. If the chocolate is too thick, add some paramount crystals or some shortening to the melted candy coating to thin it out. Remove the pop, holding it in your left hand. tap your left wrist lightly with your right hand and rotate the lollipop stick over your bowl. The excess chocolate should fall off, smoothing out the coating at the same time. Also, make sure the coating surrounds the stick at the base to secure it.
For the Chicks in Eggshells:
Or ditch the sticks altogether!
They’re pretty cute like this, too. Just drop them in a bowl of melted candy coating. Cover them with the chocolate without moving them around in the bowl. Then lift them from the coating with a spoon. Tap off the excess and slide the little chicks carefully off your spoon onto wax paper to set. If the coating pools at the bottom, use a toothpick to draw a separation line. Then, once it dries completely, it will be easier to break off the part you don’t want.
Bye, bye birdie for now, but there’s more cuteness coming soon.
