I'd never made cake pops before but, thought they might get a kick out of decorating and, of course, eating them. I went the real simple route when it came to making them. I bought some iced cupcakes from the local grocery store bakery then just smushed them up icing and all. I let that sit mixture sit in the fridge overnight then, formed it into egg shapes and put those on lollypop sticks.
Those got dipped into some white candy melts. I had a hard time with the dipping. It kept pulling the cakes off their sticks and I didn't get a nice smooth coat. Then it really dripped. Maybe chocolate is easier.
I bought edible markers for the boys to decorate the eggs. They were not a great success as they didn't draw all that well on the candy. There certainly wouldn't have been any detailed drawing. It didn't matter though as they were fully enjoyed for dessert and I have a request to make them for Thing 1's birthday next weekend. The adults thought they were ok too, though really sweet, tasting a lot like Hostess cupcakes or ding dongs.
