Basic Cake Pop How To

Nov 30, 2012

With the Holidays around the corner, many people will be heading into their kitchens to make delectable treats.  Whether it be a decorative sugar cookie or a yule log, the holidays are a great excuse to try something new.  Have you ever had a cake pop?  Well if you haven’t here’s your chance to try your hand at a fun decorative dessert…

 

Cake pops are essentially baked cake mixed with a moist binding agent that is formed into shapes, dunked into chocolate and decorated.

General recipe:

1 recipe cake, baked and cooled
½-1 cup frosting (Buttercream, cream cheese, caramel)
Wax paper
candy melts
Lollipop sticks
Edible ink pens

Candy decorations

 

After cake is cooked and cooled completely, crumble into large bowl.

Mix cake thoroughly with frosting until combined.

Roll mixture into desired shape and place on wax paper covered cookie sheet/cardboard

Melt chocolate in the microwave (30 sec intervals, stirring in between.)  You may also use a double boiler on low heat.

Dip the tip of your lollipop stick in the melted candy coating and insert into the cake balls.

Refrigerate until firm. You may place them in the freezer for 15 minutes to chill, but do not fully freeze them.

Once firm, carefully dunk the cake ball into the chocolate by holding the lollipop stick and rotating until covered. Once covered remove and softly tap and rotate until the excess chocolate falls off. Don’t tap too hard or the cake ball will fall off.  Place candy decorations while chocolate is still wet or let dry and adhere candy with additional melted chocolate.

Place down on wax paper or up in a Styrofoam block to dry.

Once dry, draw details with an edible marker.
