Sugar Cookies with Chocolate for icing

Felt like baking tonight... Mom bought me fondant shapers... but I used them for cookie cutters! Might as well get the most I can out of them! I have stars and hearts.

Cake Pop - Chicks!

For Easter this year I made a batch of Cake Pop Chicks! (thanks to Jeanie for showing me the fun recipe) So far they have been a hit! Very easy, just a little time consuming to make!
First you start out by baking a cake. Once it has cooled, crumble it to bits! Mix in a thing of icing, shape into balls and insert the lollipop stick with a bit of melted white chocolate. After all the balls have been shaped, they go into the fridge for a couple hours so they are ready to be dipped in melted chocolate. I got the yellow melting wafers at Michaels. (Lucky for me Brian found me some really great stiff styrofoam to put the cake pops in for drying and holding)The beak, wings and feet are stuck on with more melted chocolate, it acts like a glue.
I also bought little treat bags and ribbon so that they could each be individually wrapped... I think they turned out pretty cute!
So I only ended up with about 30... the recipe says you should have 40-50... maybe I made them too big, but I dont think they really could be much smaller!

This was a fun little project and there are so many different things you could make these into... might have to do it again sometime!
