What I Did: This year I wanted to take my Christmas baking to the next level. My family loves when I make cake pops, so when I came across this seemingly simple idea of reindeer cake pops, I was thrilled! I thought, “wow, you mean I can just throw some eyes and pretzels on top of my regular cake pops, and create CUTE AND DELICIOUS REINDEER FACES!? DONE.” I was off to the store to purchase eyes, pretzels, and red candy noses faster than I could consider the reality of my artistic ability.
My mom and I baked and dipped our chocolate cake pops per usual, and they tasted great. It was decorating them that was the challenge. The eyeballs weren’t right, they were too large and some of them slid around after they were placed on the pop. The result was some creepy, scared, and constipated looking reindeer.
