My Birthday Cake Pops

Gather supplies: chocolate cake mix, chocolate frosting, almond bark, sprinkles, sliced almonds

Bake cake and let it cool.

Let your kids loose smashing up the cake and mixing most of the can of frosting in it.  Then shape the mixture into balls.

Lick the deliciousness off your hands.

Put the cake balls in the freezer for about 15 minutes while you clean all the chocolate off the floor.  Melt the almond bark. 

Dip the stick in the melted almond bark and then insert it in the cake ball.  Dip the cake ball into the almond bark to coat completely.  Decorate with sprinkles and sliced almonds.

Enjoy your "bird" cake pops!

I thought of all these bird-themed ideas for my own birthday party.  In addition to bird cake pops, I was going to make spaghetti "nests" with meatballs "bird eggs" for dinner.  I was going to decorate with bird nests, bird cages, bird houses, eggs, twigs, etc.  But in the end I decided that it would be more relaxing to order Chinese take-out and let the kids have fun with the cake pops.  It might not be a perfectly styled bird-theme party, but we enjoyed ourselves!  And then we had family game night and the kids beat the parents.
