For our daughter's birthday last week, Liz made these Homestuck cake pops for the party. Here's Sollux Captor...
... and here's Tavros Nitram -- it was difficult to get the candy to come out of the side of his head, so that's why it's a little closer to the top.
The pops were made of a white cake base, and a coating of frosting + coloring for the heads (grey), hair (black), glasses (red + blue). The horns were candy trimmed (meticulously) with scissors.
When revealed at the party, there were sounds of squee-ing, followed by the sounds of appreciative scarfing. ;)
