Lollipop Heads... Part 2
Okay, so these cake pops were as close to a failure as a success can be. And actually, thinking back, everything went pretty well, except for the drawing of the faces, which turned into a nightmare. The "FoodWriter" markers I got from Michael's were really the main sticking point - because the didn't Write on the Food. Isn't that their whole purpose for existing?? And if they don't do that, what is the point of their continued existence?? So they will be returned tomorrow and instead I ended up getting black candy coating and piped the faces on, which didn't turn out as well as I hoped but oh well (see Points 1, 2 & 3 from yesterday's post). But in the end, they aren't half bad for my first time making 'em. And they taste terrific, so that is a definite plus. So we'll see. I'm not rushing out to buy more lollipop sticks and candy melts in order to make more tomorrow, but they are pretty funny for a fun occasion.
