Pencil Pops!

I've been CRAZY busy this past week preparing for my daughter's 1st Birthday Party! I'm taking a break from the last minute crafting, arranging, baking...yes...I'm still making treats (to the tune of about 6 dozen sugar cookies waiting for icing!)

So I'll keep this short....but very sweet!

Harper's party is a vintage school theme and I made these super fun Apple Cake Pops using pencils as the sticks. If you want a great tutorial on how to make the Apple Cake Pops I'll defer to the Queen of Cake Pops herself, Bakerella!

She also has a tutorial for those of you that have never attempted Cake Pops and need the basics...I'm not reinventing the wheel here...and she's so thorough you definitely need to go to her site if you plan on poppin' in the future ;)

Here's what you'll need for the Pencil Pops:
Prepared Cake Balls, formed into apple shapes
Red Candy Melts
Pencils
Plastic Pencil Pop Tips (I got mine from Sweet Baking Supply)

If you like the cute tags I used to decorate the finished pops check out Fort and Field!
