On this day in 1836 Samuel Colt received a patent for the first pistol, which was the Colt Revolver.
That doesn't mean a whole lot to me...in fact, I was trying to come up with something else to do today, but apparently this is the only thing happening.
I made bullet cake pops because I didn't want to make guns, in fact the gun in the picture is a toy gun we borrowed from a neighbor. The closest thing my boys get to play with are good old fashioned Nerf guns!
These were fun to make! The dog noses are mini M&M's cut in half, and the best part is that the girl's hair AND the dog ears are made from rolled out Tootsie Rolls. I do this instead of using fondant like you see out there on other cake pops. This gives the same effect and is much yummier!
To make it more realistic, I suppose I could have used the full Tootsie Roll log for something else, but that wouldn't have been very yummy at all.....
To make the batteries I covered the cake with Marzipan Almond Candy Dough to give it a smooth texture and to try something different. I colored it with food coloring first, and then applied it to the cake pops.
I gotta admit though, I didn't really feel a connection with "Battery Day". But that's okay because I'll just keep going and going and going...
