I thought for a while what kind of cake balls or cake pops I would make for St. Patrick’s Day. I wanted something more than just cake balls colored green, or topped with green/white sprinkles or four leaf clovers. Everyone seemed to be doing that. While browsing the internet, looking for some inspiration, I found a cute little drawing of a leprechaun. THAT’S what I wanted to do! Trying to figure out how to pull this off, I used Bakerella’s Snowman Cake Pop creation as the basis for my Leprechauns.
I only made these 5 leprechauns as they were a real chore to make. The hats were SO heavy, it was hard to get them to “glue” to the top of the heads. Attaching the cotton candy beards to the heads was a sticky situation at best.
After about an hour, the beards pretty much disintigrated and/or fell off! I should have seen that coming, but I sure did have a good giggle about it. I wonder what else I could have used for the beards instead that would not fall apart or disappear? Do you have any suggestions? Leave me a comment if you’ve got any suggestions on how I could improve the leprechauns for next time.
