Cake rolled into cylinder shapes (see picture)
Chocolate melting discs
Candy coated sunflower seeds
Brown mini m&m's
Confetti for the feet
Each owl consists of 2 eyes, 2 feet, 2 wings, 2 ears and 1 nose. The eyes are candy necklaces, the feet are confetti I found at Mr. Bulky's in Akron, Ohio, the wings are mini brown m&m's, the ears are chocolate chips and the nose is candy coated sunflower seeds.

|Chocolate Cake (see previous post for recipe)|
Yes, I am totally aware I have mad cutting skills!
This is perfectly even right?!
|Icing (see previous post for recipe)|
|1 quarter of your cake will make approximately 12 cake pops. |
I add 2 scoops of icing
|This is what your cake should look like. Roll a ball|
to see if they stick together. If they fall apart, they need
|Tablespoon usually gives me the perfect size round cake ball|
|Roll the cake into a cylinder shape|
|Dip stick into melted chocolate. Remember, do not|
get your chocolate too hot. This will cause your
cake pop to crack!
|Dip chocolate chips in melted chocolate and stick on top|
for ears. It dries in seconds.

I had mentioned back in early July that my daughter and I were going to hand out Yumtastic cake pops at the Stow parade. Well, we did and everyone who got a cake pop had such a funny reaction. It was almost like....hey this isn't a tootsie roll - woo hoo! Here are some pictures from the days events which also include my awesome husband and son who ran in the Stow Firecracker 5K that morning.
|My handy Thirty-One bag kept the cake pops nice and cool|
on a very hot 94 degree day!
|How I did not eat one of these is beyond me :)|
|150 cake pops ready to be eaten|
|Red, White & Blue Sprinkles|
|So proud of my boys.|
|Ready to hand out|
