How. Cute. Are these? These were by far my favorite cake pops that I’ve ever made. And they were super easy.
I’ve been experimenting with cake pops ever since I stumbled upon them at Bakerella. A full tutorial for these can be found here, but I highly suggest you browse around her site, you can’t go wrong with anything on there!
The only small problems I had were with the reindeer. I thought I could go my own way and get mini M&Ms instead of the suggested regular size, and the reindeer turned out silly.
I also just plain forgot to make the eyes out of confetti dots. Woops. Notice in the corner there’s one wide eyed M&M deer? I didn’t wanna keep making them all look like Santa was about to run them over…
Bakerella likes to use edible ink pens, so I finally splurged and got some, but decided to go with fine tip because I thought I would like the control better. Bad decision. It’s so “fine” that it just cut into my chocolate. I would definitely suggest a medium to fat tip.
Other than that these were so much fun to make, and really pretty effortless. Happy Holiday Baking!
