You won't be able to stay out of the alley with these adorable treats! Cupcakes and cake may be traditional, but today it's all about the cake pop. There's something about the sweetness of chocolate, cake, and icing on a stick that appeals to partygoers. For my son's 5th birthday, I combined his current fascination with Spider-Man with bowling to create pops. I spread the labor-intensive process out over several days (there are only so many hours for baking in a working mama's day!) to create Spidey-colored bowling balls and pins. The results, according to the kids and parents in attendance, were well worth the time spent perfecting them. Here's how I made the bite-sized treats.
