I will never be Bakerella.
Well, okay, I admit, I'm her every night in my dreams.
But in reality, it will probably never happen. It's just not where my skills lie. But, I do have a good time trying. And these Ladybug cake pops were no exception.
I started these cake pops the regular Bakerella way.
Bake the cake.
Add the frosting.
At this point, I gently squished the ball into the plate to make it flat on the bottom side.
Then I dipped them into chocolate melts.
Using the red candy melts, I dipped one side at a time.
I dipped them at an angle to allow the chocolate to shine through in a "V" shape.
Using melted chocolate, I added a face and dots to my lady bugs.
To finish off the lady bugs, I added green food coloring to a bag of coconut and shook it up to color it. Then I placed my lady bug cake balls on a bed of "grass".
