Turkeys and Treeeeeees!!

13 Dec

It’s the holiday season… 🙂

I neglected to post my Thanksgiving turkey cake pops – here they are!  Very time consuming (even though I used a cake mix – GASP!) but they turned out to be super cute.  I was really pleased with them! A big step up from those horrendous jack-o-lantern pops.

 

 

The turkey heads were made using these delicious little pumpkin pie flavored caramels purchased at Harry and David, and the beaks were little candy-coated chocolate sprinkles I got from Michaels.  I used royal icing to make the red wattle and black eyes (worked SO much better than trying to use a food coloring pen!!).  The feet were pretzels.  Fun, fun!

Now on to some more timely treats… Christmas tree cookies! 

I whipped these up in a hurry, so didn’t spend a lot of time on the design or decorating process.  I thought they were cute, nonetheless.  I did get the yellow icing too thick, which made making neat loops, curves and zig-zags on the trees difficult.  I little messy-looking, even… and I did not like how the star turned out atop the tree… but that’s okay, they were for a kid’s Christmas party, and I’m sure the kids didn’t mind one bit. 😉
