Graduation Cake Pops

I made these for a coworker's daughter's graduation.  She wanted a variety - fun - sprinkled cake pops.  Her school colors were gold and black, so I did that as well.  Vanilla and Strawberry!

Yoda Cake Pops

I thought for weeks on how to create the ears for my Yoda.  I decided to create my own using almond bark.  I also made ears by cutting the edges off of a ginger snap - each ginger snap made a set of ears.  Make sure that you allow your chocolate to cool prior to dipping your yodas if you are using almond bark ears.  I learned the hard way.  That is why I resorted to ginger snaps, until I figured out that once the chocolate cooled, it worked GREAT!!!!!  I used a tic tac for the nose.  I didn't spend a lot of time making the face - just simple!  I combined white and dark green candy melts to create a light green.

Angry Bird Cake Pops

A coworker of mine placed an order for 30 Angry Birds and 30 Yodas.  I have been pinning every Angry Bird and Yoda cake pop example that I could find.  I had weeks to prepare.

For the beaks I used both candy corn and star bursts.  I heated each in the microwave 10-15 seconds.  I used star bursts for the feathers on top.  I would only heat two candy corns at a time.  I cut off the yellow and white parts of the candy corn.  I rolled the heated candy into a ball and used the back side of a knife to press the slit in the beak - and then formed into a beak - with points. 

For the chest I placed a white candy melt after dipping in red candy melts.
