Angry Bird Cake Pops



It was the school cake sale in aid of Children in Need last week and I had planned to make more 'Pudsey Pops'. My balls were all rolled and chilled ready to start dipping when disaster struck...my yellow candy melts simply would't melt! I have had the packet for almost a year, so perhaps they don't keep that long. In a panic I wracked my brain to think of something to use the leftover red and white candy from Darcey's toadstools and came up with these Angry Bird pops. I dipped the entire cake firstly in white and then again in red, leaving a white area underneath. I then used yellow Smarties cut in half for the beak and piped my own eyes and coxcomb. They took me ALL evening but the kids loved them.
