happy bunny day cakepops ~ round one

Today I headed out to Tigard (about an hour away) to visit a great friend and actually, she is the person introduced me to cakepops about a year ago :) Thanks Meggers, Thanks.

Megan has an adorable little girl and is expecting a little boy in July! She and I were roommates in college and have been friends since. Since it is my spring break we decided to get together and make some cakepops! The fancy ones we made were bunnies, and they turned out...hilariously awesome. I definitely want a re-do on the bunnies.

Some are adorable, some are hilarious. Check out the top right one ;-)

We did some shapes too. We used the same methods my Mom used for the hearts for Valentine's. Stuff the cakepop mixture into a cookie cutter and press it out. Next time I will get a picture...It was a big harder at Megan's house, I felt kind of silly :)

We also used the "I want to use a lot of color but don't want to waste candy" trick. We had two melters going. We started out with dying the white chocolate pink and then after we were about half way through we added some blue to make purple. Turns out, you need LOTS of pink to make purple. Wish we'd had red...

We did a lot of balls and flowers that were a solid colors on the candy coating and brighter but still spring colors (ie. not pastels) in the sugar (sprinkles). 

I really liked the colors!

I even brought a little "welcome to the neighborhood" basket to our new neighbors!
