National Taco Day

It's National Taco Day!

Today we honor this Mexican favorite!
The method of making these particular "tacos" is much different from the traditional dish.

First, to make the "tortilla", I melted yellow candy melt onto wax paper, and folded it over the edge of a cutting board to get the curved effect.
As it dried, I sprinkled on crushed brown Jimmies.
After it hardens completely, gently peel off the wax paper.

The "meat" is crumbled up chocolate cake.
The "lettuce" is shredded coconut, dyed green.
The "cheese" is grated orange candy melt.
And the "salsa" is red Wilton food gel.

Put it all together and you get yummy Taco Cake Pops!
¡Muy sabroso!
