Turkey Cake Pops Without the Pop!
I had an order for 24 of "something Thanksgivingish" for a clients' work party so I decided to practice some pop making! I found these adorable Turkey Cake Pops at Bakerella and I knew I just had to make them for this order! I decided to trash the pop idea and just make the Turkey balls because 1.It was easier & 2. I had nothing to place the pops in for easy transportation. I also had to switch out some of the ingredients for the ones I made because I could not find the original ingredients in my area. They ended up turning out super cute and my client is very happy with them! I used vanilla cake with pumpkin pie spices to make it taste "Thanksgivingish", Almond Bark (for the coating), candy corn (for the feathers, both regular and caramel), sprinkles (for the eyes, nose & wattle), and almond M&M's (for the head). This was the first time I used Almond Bark for the coating and it works/tastes great and it is so much cheaper then the candy melts! After I was all finished I would have loved to make cupcakes and place each Turkey Ball on a cupcake but I didn't have enough time. Maybe next year! Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
