I’ve been trying to try making some leopard print cake balls, and it just so happened that I was going to a friend’s birthday party who is absolutely crazy about leopard print! Who wouldn’t want to get cake balls for their birthday?!
Most of the ones I gave as the birthday gift were the traditional brown/black print, but after buying Duff’s edible markers, I wanted to try them, so I made some pink colored leopard print. They weren’t hard to make, but it’s pretty time consuming having to paint each one. I had one white cake pop left, so I decided to try making a zebra, but some of my friends tell me I need to work on the zebra print a little more.
And here is what the birthday gift ended up looking like:
When I saw the rainbow sour candy in the store, I just knew I had to use it somehow for St. Patrick’s Day with a pot of gold. I’d seen it done already online, but I couldn’t figure out what that person used for the ‘gold’. So, headed to Michael’s to see what they had. I bought some yellow sugar sprinkles, and some yellow sugar pearls, but wasn’t confident that they would pull off the look I had in my head. And then I saw it, in the checkout lane, there it was… GOLD!!!! Gold Mine Nugget Bubble Gum to be exact. I was so giddy, I couldn’t stop telling the cashier how happy I was.
I decided to try each different option to see which one really came out best. Of course, the gold nuggets looked the best:
So I did the rest of the pops with the gold nuggets. I’ll be taking them to work tomorrow to enter them in a sweets contest. Here’s hoping I win something.
