funny "we-go-together" valentine cake pops

i'm a holiday head.
meaning, i go cray cray over holidays, 
if you hadn't guessed by now.

christmas?
i start in july.
birthdays? 
i get hives if they're not celebrated 
(and no i don't mean mine)
national donut day?
ask me what i'm eating june 6th.

anywho, aside from the fact that i LOVE holidays,
 i do have a holiday i am not so cray cray about.
and that holiday my lovelies,
is valentine's day.

blah.
mush mush kissy kissy gobbledee gook sweetie pateetie,
i am so not into.

thank goodness for sweet treats though, 
cuz they are what help me get through the lovers' holiday.

and so sweet treats i made!
these are my couples cake pops.
totally meant to be together.

check 'em out.



freeze the cake pops with an inserted candy melt lollipop stick and get the following ready:

i kept counting the speech bubbles to be sure i didn't miss the 2 that were supposed to be in the box of 12...
nope! just 10.
hope mr. wilton doesn't need math to decorate any geometric cakes... 
once the cake pops are dipped, use food markers to decorate (curse the food markers once or twice when they refuse to cooperate).

and i just realized i didn't show the other supplies-oopsies!
so,
candy glue some eyes, make smiles with red frosting, and cut up some lemon mike and ike candy, sticking them in the fry bag as soon as you dip the cake pop in melted bark.
(this'll make more sense below when you see the fry bag).

and woolah! you're done.
you just made a lovers' retreat.



ok we get the picture.
let's see what they think about each other...
oh that sunny side up egg wastes no time to get her bacon.
and that pizza's got some spicy language.
and crustless bread is something my son loves. 

oh and it looks like the cheese and cookie 
picked up similar lines...

so there ya go.
couples that were meant to be together.
like this one.

oh my!
you can just feeeel the love!

looks like things are gettin' steamy.

oh why yes yes of course!
sorry monsieur!

yikes! 
looks like this couple didn't exactly work out.

oh well,
think i'll just leave it at that and head over to mickey d's to see if i can make eye contact with some fries.

  3. Just when I thought no one could come up with anything new to create using cake balls, you did it! These are too cute. I particularly love the macaroni and cheese and the bag of pepperoni with the slice of pizza is so fun. Pinning.

  5. Lisa, these are so flipping adorable! Every Valentine's Day I say that I'm going to make a set of decorated sugar cookies with many of the pairs you have above, but I never get around to it.Your awesome short cut using cake pops may just be the answer! And I often sold my food color makers as well. They don't seem to want to write on slick surfaces.

    1. oh thank you Aida! it's funny you mention the shortcut because originally i was gonna make the couples with different colored candy melt but then i thought that would be insane because it would take me hours to finish! so using the food markers was faster and i tried my best to color it in smoothly but when it didn't i just figured it looked "artsy"! lol :>O i just kept wiping the cake pops with a napkin so the surface would be a little dull and the markers seemed to work better that way :) thanks so much for stopping by!

  8. You are so, so funny! I love that you know what day national donut day is. Haha... And, of course, these cake pops are adorable. I had never thought of buying cupcakes and using those to make cake balls. So smart! (P.S. You'd make my day if you came and linked up at The Makers link party over on my blog.)

  11. Once again - HILARIOUS! - every single word! And several good tips here for us "non-baking" but "food-crafty-loving" readers! Had no idea I could have a cake pop in my hand and ready to decorate by "smashing the daylights" outta a store-bought cupcake! And how much fun to lay out all the supplies and candy and have a little party to make these! Wonder if we shouldn't file a class action appeal to get 12 of those bubbles - plus "punitive" damages! - over to you so we can see a few more cute couples!

    1. oh i am just visualizing the "cake pop made outta beat up cupcake" party that you could put together J! and imagine the extras we could have when we get all the dollars from the lawsuit-lol! oh well, at least mr. wilton keeps making more new candy decorations so that suits me just fine if he can't count really. heehee :>D
