In my second shipment of products I received from Wilton, I was excited to find a huge variety of Wilton PEEPS products that came out this spring!

I decided to try my hand a cake pops.  I have never done them, can you believe it?  I turned to the Wilton Pops section online.  I learned everything from how to construct them to what recipe adjustments to make!  After baking a 9 x 13 cake and then crumbled half, adding ready made frosting to the mix.

I was excited to try the new Limited Edition Marshmallow Candy Melts® Candy.  Using a double boiler I melted the candy and dipped/spooned it over the cake pops.

I used the Wilton sprinkles in the Sparkling Sugars line, sticking to some of the traditional PEEPS colors.
