Cake Pops dressed up for spring/EasterPosted: March 28, 2009
I have seen these cake pops on Bakerella’s Site for a while now. She makes them in all kinds of ways and I have been dying to make them. Well I never found the time or need to until now. Once I saw these fabulous, super cute chick pops, I knew the time had come. Here is the directions for cake pops (decorate them anyway you want..pumpkins, ornaments, flowers, ghosts, etc..) and here is the recipe for making chicks.
These are time consuming, but if taken in steps they are worth the effort!!
ENJOY and HAPPY SPRING/EASTER!
Cake pop directions: CHICKS BELOW
1 box cake mix (cook as directed on box for 13 X 9 cake)
1 can frosting (16 oz.)
candy melts (1 lb. pkg.)
Edible ink pens
sugars to decorate with
Directions for basic cake pops: chicks are below
After cake is cooked and cooled completely, crumble into large bowl. Mix thoroughly with 1 can frosting. (I use the back of a large spoon, but it may be easier to use fingers to mix together. But, be warned, it will get messy. Also, you may not need the entire can of frosting, so start out by using almost the entire can and add more if you need to.)
Roll mixture into quarter size balls and place on wax paper covered cookie sheet. (Should make 45-50)
Melt chocolate in the microwave per directions on package. (30 sec intervals, stirring in between.)
Dip the tip of your lollipop stick in a little of the melted candy coating and insert into the cake balls. (Insert a little less than halfway.)
Place them in the freezer for a little while to firm up.
Once firm, carefully insert the cake ball into the candy coating 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, too.
Place in a styrofoam block to dry.
Once dry, draw faces/decor with an edible ink pen/decorative sugars/candies and allow ink to dry!
yellow cake mix
decorative writing pens
decoative candies for feet and wings
Once the round yellow candy covered cake pops are dry use a toothpick to dip into the melted candy coating. Dab a little dot of the coating where you want the beak to go. Then, just take one of the orange rainbow chips and attach it to the pop. It works like glue.
For the feet and wings, use the same technique to glue on the other sprinkle shapes.
Use the edible ink pen to draw the eyes.
