I decided to give the traditional teach appreciation gift a face lift. I made apple shaped cake pops! I made them with a lemon cake/lemon frosting mix and they turned out tasting great. I was planning to use a spice cake to hint at the fall theme of apples, but I didn't get the mix thawed in an unexpected time crunch to get them made.
You can see I used both a red (which I created using some red and pink melts - due to lack of red) and I used a lime green and I think both shades looked good on my apples! I also used the ends of pretzel sticks to make the stems on the top.
