Quick Cake Pops

I was bored Saturday, so I decided to make cake pops for Jacob's drama troupe's last performance that evening.  I've made cake pops before.  They're simple, yet messy.

On some,  I used food color pens.  It did not work too well though.
The candy coating was too waxy for the pens

Others I just sprinkled with sugar.

Cake pops "drying."
  They're even more fun to EAT!  To quote a fellow thespian in Jacob's troupe who had never seen a cake pop: "It's perfect! It's cake...on a STICK!"

Adventure Time!

My kids and I are addicted to Cartoon Network, especially "Regular Show" and "Adventure Time."  We are constantly watching these shows, as well as Mad.  We lurve Finn, Jake, Princess Bubblegum and the whole cast of insanity.

This past week we had to deal with the death of a loved one in the middle of a play week for Jacob. There was a lot of driving back and forth with my son.  For his play, the troupe was also having a concession stand to sell food to raise funds.  I decided to bake some cupcakes to donate for sale.  And of course I chose Adventure Time as my theme.

I made Finn & Jake,

They're all butter cream, hence the..goopy-ness, but they're so cute!!

Isabel donated her drawing talents to decorate the table.
