A Trendy Old McDonald {Farm Cake with Farm Animal Cake Pops}

Kids LOVE farms - the tractors, the animals, the barns - so I wasn't surprised to get another order for a farm theme cake this summer (this one from last year http://somethingsweetcakery.blogspot.com/2010/06/old-macdonald.html was tons of fun)...

The trick to this new order -- combine the farm theme with the new "trendy" thing in the confectionary world -- cake pops!! (Pretty much a cake truffle on a lollipop stick. If you've not heard of them, check out Bakerella's blog - she's one of the creative ones responsible for take off of these cute mini treats.)

So -- here's the barn -- oh so cute (and choc chip cake inside -- yum yum)!


And here are the pops -- I mean, seriously, aren't these adorable!!


I'm not going to lie -- they took a TON of time. BUT, it's totally worth it and even cuter when you have dozens of them looking at you!



Beckett's fun mamma has a cute idea for the party display, so I'll try to post a pic of everything set up in an update later... in the meantime... happy farming!!
