I really can't decide if these are my favorites or maybe my favorite is on tomorrow's post! Wait and see then you tell me. Beth from Hungry Happenings made some adorable rice krispie treats using sand molds and inspired me to dig in the sand too! With cake pops being all the rage, I decided to make some sea creature cake pops, only they're not pops. They are the cake pop filling formed in mini sand molds.
Cake Pops Creatures!
When decorating cookies, I love to use fondant for accents and I thought...why not decorate the sea creatures??
Now let me introduce you!

I've got good news and bad news...
Here's the good news - I got my molds at the dollar store!
And now the bad news - I got my molds at the dollar store back in early April, and I don't know if they still have them. (I really meant to post these creatures in the spring and time got away from me). I am posting now, and somewhere, someone should still have sand molds!
Wash and dry the molds.
Mixed up the cake ball filling (use your favorite white cake ball recipe).
Spray your molds with Pam.
Scoop out some filling and roll in raw sugar.l
Press cake mixture in molds.
Chill the molds and then flip out on parchment paper.
Add more sugar to the tops of the creatures.
Decorate with fondant or just with sand (raw sugar).
To serve, just use a knife and slice off a piece.
Here's what I used for my decorations:
Crab - Decorated with white gumballs and black fondant center eyes.
Red fondant bows and mouth.
Sea Horse - Decorated with purple fondant, sugar pearl, ready made eyes and black jimmy eyelashes.
Whale - Decorated with pink fondant and flower mold, sugar pearl, ready made eyes and black jimmy eyelashes.
Fish - Decorated with blue fondant fins, red fondant (formed by hand) lips and ready made eyes and black jimmy eyelashes.
