are you like sick and tired of halloween yet?
are you like sooooo over the scary treats you could just die from redundancy already?
i mean, we've only had halloween posts since august on some blogs and it feels like halloween will never get here.
but alas, it will be here soon enough so i am gonna squeeze another halloween treat here.
so if you are sick of the holiday already,
run, run as fast as you can!
but if you can stomach one more treat,
well, then here ya go.
inspired by this scrapbook paper.
they come from the same line as these jars that i made a few weeks back.
i made these transfers for them not from royal icing, but from candy melt in a ziploc bag then kept frozen til ready to use.
you'll see in a sec that i didn't use all the transfers, as sometimes it was easier to just draw on the pops with a toothpick and melted candy melt than to transfer them. i just didn't plan too well ahead of time and apparently like to kill myself doing extra work :>P
i used this frosting mixed with yellow cake mix and made the caramel bits rolled into stems.
made a bunch of irregular shaped cake pops in various sizes.
i didn't care about making them all matchy matchy same sized either.
i often wonder how the heck cake pop people do that anyway without a mold?!?!...
oh well, where were we?
then i got to work.
so you can see here, the candy melt transfers came to good use for the legs and wings. but when you attach them you gotta act fast so they don't melt from the heat of your hand.
and here is the finished project:
aren't they silly?
i messed up a little though, like on this one but was able to fix it by picking out the weird eyebrow lookin' eye, adding and smoothing out more candy melt and then drawing the right one using a toothpick..
guess there's nothing left to do now but say
what? is it gonna be halloween already?
why didn't anybody say something?
