Pirate Cake Pops

Things I've learned about cake pops:

1. They're not as easy as they look.
2. They are time consuming, but worth the effort.
3. Add a little vegetable oil to your candy melts to get a smooth look.

(Thank you for the tip, Heather!)

Heather made some awesome pirate cake pops from Bakerella's new cake pop book, and I had to give them a try. My son saw the pirates Heather made and said, "THAT'S what I want for my birthday!"

Here it is!

...and a little pirate cake to match!

Shiver me timbers! Those are some cute pirates!

...but not as cute as my own little buccaneer! Happy birthday!

Here's a tutorial Bakerella did for The Pioneer Woman Blog

Glace Icing
1 cup confectioner's sugar : 1 Tbsp. light corn syrup : 1 Tbsp. milk
(Adjust amount of milk to achieve desired consistency in icing.)

(I didn't have an edible food marker or sprinkles on hand, so I used glace icing for the polka dots and the face. They turned out fine, but if I make the pops again, I'll try to use the right stuff.)


Vanilla Buttercream Frosting

Rhonda's Ultimate Marshmallow Fondant (for the polka dots)
