Day 3: Christmas Cake Pops -
Tangled Christmas Lights

The long holiday weekend is a great time to get the Christmas lights up on the house.
But if you're tackling that project today, hopefully you're not starting out with a tangled mess like this!

I've got to give credit to Clark W. Griswold for the inspiration for these pops!

  1. Love it, how cute! Your creations are amazing :) What kind of dipping chocolate do you use? I normally use Wiltons but lately I have been having trouble melting that stuff. It turns out too thick even when I try too thin it with vegetable shorting. I would love some advice because cake pops are such a fun holiday treat at parties. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!

  2. I've been using Wilton candy melts. I've had the most success when I thin them with Paramount Crystals. Thanks! Hope you had a great Turkey Day too!

  5. This are adorable! I can't believe your goal of a cake pop every day. I tried to make regular ones once and it was a huge messy fail. They looked disgusting but it was cake so they still tasted alright.


    We're linking up Christmas related posts at my crafting blog. I would love if you would link these up :)

  11. Thanks, glad you like them. The lights are made from candy coated chocolate sunflower seeds. Light shaped sprinkles can also work too.

    1. I put the candy melt into a decorating squeeze bottles, and then piped it on.
