Angry Birds Game Cake Pops

Photos by Tina Phan

Finally, Rovio Angry Birds inspired cake pops from kathyphantastic and Objects of Confection.

These aren't our first iPhone inspired creations, but they are our first iPhone/iPad game-based cake pops.

This blue angry bird looks tired, sad, AND just a little angry.

Unfortunately, some of these cracked. I think if the redhead wanted to look like one of the characters, he could become the pig. I'd need to start calling him the red mustache.

How would Words With Friends look as cake pops? I'm thinking inferior ("inferior" is ≥ 11 points).

What's your favorite phone game? Snake? Brick Breaker? Do you want to see it as a cake pop?

Obviously, I take after the blue Angry Bird.

Lady Gaga Cake Pop

A few weeks ago, I gave you cake pop rock-stars (KISS cake pops).

Today, I bring you a cake pop pop-star: Lady Gaga cake pop with lightning bolt from the Just Dance video.

This cake pop-star garnered a brief mention in the Austin Post.

Should I make a series of Lady Gaga-inspired cake pops? What do you think?

Box Full of Kitties

Objects of Confection and I packed this box full of cake pops for an excited Hello Kitty lover in Round Rock.

What flavor is inside those cute little Hello Kitty cake pop heads, might you ask? Objects of Confection's chocolate cake balls. Mmmm...cute covered chocolate.

Oh, you haven't gotten enough of the Hello Kitty cake pops? There's more:

"Where the Wild Things Are" Cake Pops

The first day of April is one of those I don't look forward to - April Fool's Day. Despite being full of (mostly good-natured) mischief myself, I still don't like a day dedicated to tricks. As frequent readers know by now, I much prefer treats to tricks.

On this day of deception, The University of Texas' School of Information hosted the Austin Edible Book Festival. It sounded like an April Fool's, but it was no joke.

Having attended a few years back, I was happy to see there would be another one. I was even happier to know that working on campus, I'd probably be able to attend, and maybe even enter.

Colin Walsh suggested Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are. There's a reason I keep that guy around - he's brilliant!

I used Objects of Confection's signature red velvet cake balls to make Max, Moishe, Tzippy and Bernard.

Spike Jonze, eat your heart out.

The talented Aimee Wenske took these great pictures.

Fun WTWTA connection: Her boyfriend Josh was very popular Max for Halloween a few years back.

There were a few great entries and some rather strange ones. Next year, I might aim for something punnier.

The treats provided at the Festival also gave me the perfect excuse to eat Amy's Ice Cream for lunch. Mint Chip for the win.

Austin Bakes for Japan Movie

Aimee Wenske and I (mostly Aimee Wenske) made this little stop motion movie for the Austin Bakes for Japan Bake Sale .

I can't get over the Aimee Wenske Chococat photographer fully accessorized with chococamera.

Hooray for Sanrio cake pops from kathyphantastic and Objects of Confection.

Come to Austin Bakes for our cake pops and cake balls among many other bloggers' and foodies' baked goods Saturday, April 2nd at Hotel San Jose between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm and The Shops at Mira Vista between 10:00 am and 5:00 pm.

Austin Bakes for Japan - Sanrio Character Cake Pops

You might have heard that Objects of Confection and kathyphantastic are making Keroppi Cake pops for Austin Bakes for Japan Bake Sale benefiting AmeriCares.

It's true, Sanrio Keroppi cake pops will be available at Austin Bakes for Japan. But that's not all!

We're proud to offer the cake pop versions of other Sanrio characters such as the Hello Kitty cake pops I made for Sharon Loves This' bachelorette party.

Oh and there's more. There's also Pekkle and Chococat.

Badtz Maru and Pochacco just stopped by for the photo opp. They won't be available at Austin Bakes.

Our Sanrio Cake Pops will be available at Hotel San Jose and The Shops at Mira Vista. Jessica from Objects of Confection will be volunteering at the Mira Vista location, so be sure to stop by say hi and get a few of their delicious cake balls.

And to let blog readers in on a little secret: those Keroppi pops are red velvet inside.

Huge thank you to the amazingly talented Aimee Wenske for photographing these Sanrio cake pops and Kathryn Hutchinson of Austin Gastronomist for organizing Austin Bakes for Japan. We hope to raise a lot of money for Japan through cuteness.

Tickle Me Finley - Elmo Cake Pops

Last month, Benjamin Finley celebrated his second birthday. Like many 2-year-olds, Benjamin is obsessed with Elmo.

For Benjamin's 1st birthday I made him this Tony Chachere's tee. This year I one-upped myself, or maybe two-dozen-upped myself, with a small army of cake pop Elmos.

I'd been hoping for an opportunity to try out Bakerella's Sesame Street Cake Pops.

First Benjamin was a little scared to eat Elmo.

He got over it.

Eek. Chilled Elmo brains!

Benjamin is rumored to have learned how to say "Elmo Pop." I'm sad his dad, my friend Aaron, wasn't able to get a sound clip.

Cake Pop Success

I tried to take some shots of the Elmo pops myself. It ended up looking like Elmo went to Anthropologie, much like everything else I do.
