maybe i just have a simple mind. or i'm easily entertained. but i joyously look forward, every year, to the excuse to make little, time-consuming sugar goodies. recently, the little guy's 3rd birthday was it. out of the clear blue sky, he was certain he wanted a batman birthday party. so batman it was.
then my little wheels started spinning.... oooo.... cake pops. batman cake pops.
so silly and labor intensive, i know. but, holy hallelujah, batman, how they made me happy.
the cake pop queen is bakerella. seriously, if you can think of it, she's made it into a cake pop. my sister thinks she has too much time on her hands. i think she's brilliant. and am kind of jealous that she gets paid to make these little creations all day.
other than the risk of a half eaten cake pop falling sadly off it's stick, they're such a tidy little party favor to hand out. and they're yummy too!
i made these with betty crocker's gluten free yellow cake mix. so other than batman's ears, they are gluten free. heck, even if you're placing them in gluten-eating hands, you might as well be able to eat a little corner of the cake while you're working on them. right?
