Directions for Decorating Easter Egg Pops:
1.Shape the cake balls into an egg shape.

2. Dip in candy coating color of your choice.

3. Let sit in the styrofoam block until dry.

4. When dry, use a small paint brush to paint on a thin layer of corn syrup in a line around the egg. Do one line at a time.

5. Right after you paint on the syrup, sprinkle on one of the sanding colors until all of the corn syrup is covered. Use a bowl sprinkle over. Repeat with varying designs and colors.

6. You could probably also do this with the melted candy color, but this time I was experimenting and tried the corn syrup.

7. For the confetti sprinkles, either dab a little bit of the candy color with your toothpick and glue on the sprinkle shapes or use a little bit of the corn syrup to act as the glue. The corn syrup will take a little longer to dry.

8. Dry completely.
