Yesterday was the Sports Relief day in the UK, I admire the British for their engagement to charities. So it was also the wear red and bake cakes day at the office. For charity of course. I love baking but don't do it as often as I'd like because my waist wouldn't forgive me. I have been wanting to make some of Bakerella's pop for a while now. Bakerella makes me happy. I was planning to make these:
But I didn't... I bought everything, the yellow candy melt, the edible pens, the lollipops everything from a shop in the internet as here these aren't everyday stuff you find in the local supermarket. And off I went. So nervous and excited, I thought it would take me ages! While doing the cake balls I decided to make a 50:50, half smileys half choc pops. Yummy, I melted the milk chocolate and sprinkled them with stars, silver balls and sprinkles. Pretty! I melted the yellow candy thing.... and... Bakerella: I don't know how you do it but it didn't work... maybe the candy was too thick? I made too and forgot about my smiley faces, melted more chocolate and finished the job.
My BF loved them, they were delicious he said. At work it was funny... they looked at them and seemed surprised, but didn't dare to touch, they were all asking what was inside, I kept saying "they are cake pops!" well... verdict? They ate them all and I had great feedback! Have you tried them? Have you made them? Any tips for the candy melt?

Enjoy the weekend!!
