Halloween cake pops are a simple, fun, and delicious way to help make your Halloween party a frightful success!
Cake pops have become all the rage this year, so you may as well take advantage of that fact and jump on board the cake ball train. :)
If you've never made a cake ball or cake pop before today, don't panic. Yes, I'm going to say it... ...it's a piece of cake!
Sorry, couldn't resist. :) Seriously, though, if you've ever made a cake or cupcakes (even the boxed kind), you can definitely whip up some cute Halloween cake pops and have a great time doing it.
The ghoulish eyeball cake pops pictured here were created by Renaye Ochoa, who I discovered on Flickr. Aren't they absolutely fantastic?
I've had a chat to Renaye, who gave me permission to show off her clever Halloween cake balls, and discovered that she has aspirations of starting her own business making delicious treats just like these.
I think she's definitely on to something and I'm sure you'd have to agree with me. I've seen quite a range of her cake pop creations and they are all extremely well done.
I'm going to let the cat out of the bag and tell you that I've invited Renaye to become a regular contributor here at CCM, and she's tentatively agreed as time permits in the new year. How exciting for all of us!
Meanwhile, let me encourage you to try your hand at making these spooky eyeball cake pops.
What I particularly love about Renaye's eyeball cake pops is, in fact, the fork effect! Yes, you "could" use regular lollipop sticks for these, but there is just something so delightfully repulsive about forking into an eyeball that the kids are going to love.
Renaye got the idea of using the forks from another impressive baker, at Treats 4 Ta-tas, who sells her goodies and donates ALL the proceeds to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. What a gal!
So, let's get started...
I told you making Halloween cake pops was easy, didn't I? Are you going to make some this year? How about trying your hand at Halloween bat cake pops, or maybe Halloween cat cake pops? Maybe ghosts, pumpkins, or zombies?
We'd love to see what you've come up with. Show them off and let us take a look at your creations.
