I had some cake just lying around so I decided to try to make some chili pepper cake pops in honor of Cinco de Mayo. They turned out really cute, but I think next time I will choose to coat them differently.
I started after I shaped them (using my mini cookie cutters from Pampered Chef) I dipped them into the lime green color on the tops by hand. After they rested and firmed up I dipped them into the red melts and added the stick to them. I think in the future I will just dip the entire pop with the stick in the red candy melts and then I will go back and redip the tops in a green color. If I had had easy access to a darker green I would have just used that, but I was using the lime green for another pop project so I added the green sanding sugar to give them some pizzazz and also to darken the color up. They turned out great and I am so glad I made them, but have learned a little something for next time too! Win...win in my book!
