I've been wanting to try Bakerella's cake pops that I am seeing everywhere and thought adding some to teacher gifts would be a good excuse! I did them kind of "upside-down" as I envisioned adding little tags and plopping them down individually onto desks (like in the front office) to stand up on their own.
I used red M&M's for the noses and little pearl sprinkles with food marker for eyes. I have to admit these are kind of addictive to make ... and eat. What a fun way to eat a bite of cake without a mess.
I wrapped them in lollipop bags and cinched close with a brown chenille stem. I formed a kind of "heart" at each end and them flattened them and twisted to secure to form simple antlers. I twisted one onto each of the gift bags for the teachers using the antlers without realizing this would make the bag fall right over. So I just added another pop inside to balance it out. Twice as yummy I guess!
