Happy Selection Sunday

I'm hoping for another 2008. How awesome would that be? Love me some Jayhawk basketball.

Five stores, three bags of candy melts, eight bags of eyes and a fair number of hours today were spent on these cake pops.

Figured they were perfect for March Madness. Plus, we're Big 12 tournament and conference champs. What better reason to celebrate?

I based this idea off of Bakerella's Big Bird cake pops. Dip a pop in red candy melts, then cover candy corn (with the ends cut off to make them shorter) in yellow melt. Attach the eyes and beaks with candy melt, and draw on the eyebrows with melt. Draw on nostrils and a smile with an edible marker. A blue bow and there you have it! Beak'em Hawks!

Als0, this was a baking goal of mine the last two times I set them. Finally succeeded! And probably not again for a very long time.


  1. I am in awe. Those are fabulous!

  2. That was such a great game yesterday! Love your cakepops and I'm going to link your blog from my Facebook page if that's okay. Spread the Jayhawk spirit!

  3. Rock Chalk! These are wonderful B ;)

  4. These are adorable! And yummy, I'm sure!

  5. Aren't these great? I teach 2nd grade and LOVE to make them for my students! They are pretty easy if you just use sprinkles and I think they are a ball to make!

  6. This is such a cute idea. I'm sure your friends loved them. Hope they appreciated how much time went into making them:)
