Day 19: Christmas Cake Pops - Santa Claus

You better watch out, you better not cry.
Santa cake pops are here, that's the reason why!

I just couldn't wait until the end of the month to see
Jolly Old St. Nick, so here he is...
12 days ahead of schedule!

Here's a quick run down on how I made Mr. Clause:

Using a basic round ball shape, I dipped it in peach candy melt. To create the point for the hat, I placed a chocolate chip on top, and then I re-dipped the top part in red.
I drew on the eyes and eyes with a food writing pen.
I brushed on the beard and brim of the hat by using the tip of a lollipop stick, and texturing it.
The nose, eyebrows and mustache were all applied
with the tip of a toothpick.

That's all there is to it!
I'm making my list and checking it twice.
Santa cake pops? Check!
