This was a test run to see if I could make them, as I sort of epically failed last time. They are a little blobby but 1) the ones I did later were better, so my technique is improving, and 2) I am planning on dipping the "for real" batch in multicolored sprinkles so they look like tiny versions of this:

It's not until June 9 but I wanted to practice early so that I had time to work out any kinks (or abandon cake-pop ship), but it worked out pretty well!
