Study Break!

Today I took a little study break with my friend Destiny to make cake pops. What are cake pops you may ask? Well, go right on over to bakerella's blog because she is the Michaelangelo of cake pops and can tell you all about them. We did our best and more than a few of them turned out a little off, but it was really fun, and perfect to take to class tomorrow to get people pumped up for our second week of finals. Of course we had to do something dental related, so we decided to modify one of bakerella's cake pop recipes and make....

tooth pops!

Most of them turned out soooo cute...and admittedly a few of them look a little silly. 

I will also admit that I sampled one of the less cute ones and they taste just as good as the prettier one I also sampled...just in case anyone was worried. Sometimes you just have to take one for the team.

They were not super easy to make, but it was a lot of fun and I definitely needed the study break.

We followed the directions on bakerella's website to make the cake pops.

First we baked a yellow cake according to the directions on the box and let it cool completely. Then we used a fork to break the cake up and mixed it with a tub of icing. 

Next we formed little balls out of the cake and put them in the freezer so that they could harden. At this point we did study, so it wasn't a complete study break. 

Next we shaped them to make them look more like teeth and glued popsicle sticks in them using melted chocolate candy melts.

We had some supervision during the whole process, which was good because the hardest part was dipping them in the melted candy coating and getting it to look smooth and even. 

Once they set, Destiny painted on the smiles while I painted on the central groove anatomy. 

I think they turned out pretty darn cute!

but then again, I am a sucker for nice teeth.
