The Walking Dead Zombie Cake Pops

I realize that Halloween was a month or so ago, but for those of us who are fans of AMC's The Walking Dead, zombie season is now. (Although the show is on hiatus right now until late 2011). For the premiere of the show, me and my zombie loving boyfriend decided to make "zombie cake pops!"

Since Bakerella is truly queen of the cake pops and we didn't deviate from her recipe and instructions that much, I'll send you over to her website if you'd like more directions. We used red velvet cake mix and cream cheese frosting.

Then we made our cake balls into more of a skull shape and dipped them in different colors of almond bark.

We proceeded to decorate with all the sprinkles, food coloring, candy, and coconut (for hair!!) that we could find.

It was pretty messy.

By the end though we had lots of zombies...

and even a few skulls and severed fingers. On some of them, I purposefully messed up the almond bark coating so you could see the red velvet "brains" inside.

It was a lot of fun and the cake pops were the hit of the premiere party we brought them to!
