Star Cake Pops

Star cake pops for a Cailou themed birthday party.

I was shopping at the dollar tree and found a star ice cube mold like this one from Wilton.  The one from the dollar tree worked fine, I bought it last year close to 4th of July.  I prefer the mold over the mini star cookie cutter because I could mold in ten at a time.

The blue star is my favorite.  I have a hard time finding dark blue candy melts so I bought dark blue candy coloring and mixed it with some baby blue candy melts.  I used quite a bit to get it to the dark blue.

Sweetie Pie

I've been wanting to make these for a while now.

I baked them for a bit too long, but they're just so cute!

Seeing Red

I've had a busy month!  A lot of birthday parties and experimenting with red macarons.

Here are some things that I have been working on that has me seeing red.

Elmo cake pops!  I loved making these!  They were for Andrew's 1st birthday party.  I was hesitant to make them because they are time consuming, but some great things about these pops, if they crack, you can easily cover the cracks up with fur.  Also, there is something relaxing about adding "fur" to these pops. 

They look so happy!  I used candy melts for the mouths, if I ever have to make these again I would use something thinner for the mouths, because the candy melts were thick.

Cake pops for a Mickey birthday party.  I didn't have a lot of time to put together the cake pop stand, so ignore the scotch tape :P  

I love the polka dots.

Remember those red macarons that I have been trying to make?

I finally got them to the red I wanted.  I stirred almost 2 tsps of red food coloring in to get it to the red I wanted.  I used Christmas Red food powder coloring by CK products.  

Just in time for Valentine's day!  I over mixed it a bit so when I finished piping the heart shaped macarons, they spread and a lot of them ended up as triangles. 


Have a Happy Valentine's Day!  <3
