    I’ve never had to clean up any messes when eating them. Maybe it depends on how juicy certain apple varieties are? Red apples have alot more juice than green apples, and the green ones are the apples of choice when making caramel apples.

    I like the idea of carmel apples but I’m afraid people may not eat them because of the hassle it is to eat them! I love them but I even pass on them because hate eating them. I would go with cake pops. In the end, it’s all up to you!

    100% cake pops!! I just got my braces off after two years and the thought of candy apples makes me shudder lol. They are just so challanging to eat. Cake pops on the other hand are super cute and totally customizable.. I made these the other day from a cake pop book  I found at michaels:

    you could always do apple cake pops! lol?

    @mcglalala: Those are adorable pictures! I want a cake pop immediately! Although, I have to say I do feel sorry for that little chick-a-dee with half of its head missing. It would be quite disturbing if the cake filling was red velvet…  moreso if it had raspberry jelly in the center.

    Mmmm cake pops!!!

    Let me say for some reason I am truly unable to eat a caramel apple without making a mess and a fool of myself. They are delicious but sooo difficult for me to eat.

    I would go with cake pops as a fun spin on the wedding cake. A lot less messy and still delicious.

    Although I would rather eat a caramel apple… I chose cake pops because they’re easier to eat. I don’t think I’d want to get all messy at a wedding.

    We’re using cake pops with name/table# tags on them as our escort “cards.”  There are so many fun decorations on them and while I enjoy the thought of caramel apples, I agree that the last thing I want to do when I’m all dressed up in a nice dress is chow down on a messy drippy apples in front of family and strangers and maybe even a cute date I brought.  Both excellent ideas though!  The apple might be more appropriate for a rustic/more casual/outdoorsy fall wedding if that’s what you’re doing.

    @mcglalala: OMG! I think you win for combining the clever apple theme with the non-messy cake pops. 🙂 Nicely done!

    I think I would prefer the candy apples.  We looked at doing this as well, but the apples were well out of our price range, and I wasn’t prepared to make 200 apples myself!   But if you were looking at combining the cake pop idea and apples (very clever @mcglalala:) here is a picutre and a link that might help you out: http://everythingsbaked.blogspot.com/2009/10/carmel-apple-cake-pops.html

    Good Luck and let us know if you need any tast-testers!

    I love both but I would say cake pops. They are cute and easy for anybody to eat. If you have any people with dentures will not be able to eat the caramel apple. Not to mention if you are have kids at your event the possibilities of caramel getting all over hair and face are endless.

    Maybe you could do cut up apples instead of on a stick, so they are less messy and easier to eat?? I love the idea of the apples over the cake pops
