Easter Egg Cake Pops

So this concludes my 5 days of adorably cute Easter Cake Pops!
Thanks again to Bakerella.com

Stop the cuteness!
Stop it, I say!
Don’t even look at these sprinkles or you’ll be hypnotized. Hurry, close your eyes or the next thing you know, you’ll have Easter eggs popping up all over your kitchen.
I warned you.

Here’s what I used to decorate:

Pink Candy Melts
Yellow Candy Melts
White Candy Melts
Pastel Confetti Sprinkles
Sanding Sugars
Light Corn Syrup
Paper Lollipop Sticks
Styrofoam Block
Paramount Crystals
Small Paintbrush
Toothpicks

To decorate:

Shape the cake balls into an egg shape.
Dip in candy coating color of your choice.
Let sit in the styrofoam block until dry.
When dry, use a small paint brush to paint on a thin layer of corn syrup in a line around the egg. Do one line at a time. Right after you paint on the syrup, sprinkle on one of the sanding colors until all of the corn syrup is covered. Use a bowl sprinkle over.
Repeat with varying designs and colors.
You could probably also do this with the melted candy color, but this time I was experimenting and tried the corn syrup.
For the confetti sprinkles, either dab a little bit of the candy color with your toothpick and glue on the sprinkle shapes or use a little bit of the corn syrup to act as the glue. The corn syrup will take a little longer to dry.
Dry completely.

Enjoy!
