Ghost Pops



Halloween is just around the corner, and I have another treat for you!  I made Cake Pops for the first time, and attempted to make them look like Ghosts.  I think there is a lot left to desired with these, but they would still go over very well with kids.  Afterwards I thought maybe I should have used fondant for a more realistic look.  But, hindsight is always 20/20. The other idea I had after the fact, was changing the shape.  If I had made the cake pops bigger on the bottom and not just plain circles the dipping might have worked better.  If you try them, let me know what works for you!

Sorry for the short post today!  I have been running all over the place, and I am just exhausted.  Only 4 days until my husband gets to come home!

I followed Bakerella's Step by Step Guide to make my Cake Pops

Ghost Pops

Cake Pops (recipe here)
Almond Bark, melted
Black Icing

Dip Cake Pops in the Almond Bark.  Place on a lined baking sheet.  Let it harden slightly.  Spoon more almond bark over the top.  You want to build up the base, so you get the Ghost look. Once fully hardened, pipe the black icing on to make the face.  If you have edible markers, they would work too.

I think they're just perfect . . . and I wish I would have thought of this myself last weekend when my 2 and 5 year-old grandsons were here! They're dressing as ghosts for Halloween. (Mama is grateful their tastes are simple!)

I like this cake pop version because you don't have to worry about a smooth candy coating, or the cake balls sliding down the stick...which happened to me the last time I made cake pops.

Too cute! Funny, cause when I am lazy this is what my cake pops sometimes look like anyway, minus the ghostly faces.
