Carrot Cake Pops!

Remember when I told you to save the orange cake from the Carrots in the Carrot Patch Cake?  Today you're going to need it and if you didn't save the cake, you can't blame me.  I tried to stop you from eating it.  Really, I tried.
This is why~
I thought we should make some carrot cake pops.  Or I should say, carrot SHAPED cake pops because no real carrots were used.
These were some of the easiest cake pops I've made, so let's get started...
1.  Use the leftover orange cake from the Carrot Patch Cake.

2.  Crumble the orange cake in a bowl.
 
3.  Add a little orange frosting and mix together.
 
4.  Using a cake pop mold, (tree shape) make your carrots.  (If you don't have a mold, roll the cake into cone shapes between your fingers)
 
5.  After you pop them out of the mold,
gently shape the cake pop a little more like a carrot.
 
6.  Dip in orange candy melts and
immediately sprinkle with orange sanding sugar.
 
7.  Using a snowflake plunger cutter, cut leaves out of green fondant.
 
8.  Put a hole in the center using a round decorating tip.
 
9.  Take a carrot and pipe orange candy melts around the stick.
 
10.  Add the green leaf and you're finished.
Almost finished.

11.  If you want to add lines, drizzle or pipe candy melts across the carrots~
 I'm so "EGG" cited to bring you more Easter sweets and treats!
 
The Hunt Is On!...

    1. Ha Ha - I just realized I called it a leaf cutter! I'll have to go back and change it! I could have made many more pops if I hadn't got into it! :)

  9. These are so great! I've never tried to make cake pops before, but you made it look so easy that I think I might give it a try. I love the addition of line drizzles- they make the carrots "pop".

    1. It so funny that you mention the drizzles - I almost didn't post the photo cuz I didn't know if I liked them with the drizzle. Now I do! :)

  10. I'm with Mike ... the drizzles add texture. You fooled me, I was expecting carrot cake ... I'm saving the idea for April 1!
