HALLOWEEN CAKE POPS

Posted on


Halloween Cake Pops decorated like a pumpkin ghosts make a great treat to bake up for your Halloween Party.They also make a great homemade treat for those special Trick-or-Treaters.
I like to make my cake pops from scratch, they taste so much better but this time I used ready cake mix to save some time and and prepared homemade butter cream icing.For the coating I usually use white chocolate and food coloring,

but I just couldn’t get the right colour of orange so I did have to use candy melts for pumpkins and green and red candy melts for ghosts that I purchased at a nearby party city store.

Happy Halloween to Everyone!
