It feels like months since I've made cake pops, and probably because, it actually has been months! Which is a shame as I love making them, I've just been too busy so it was nice to have time to do some properly when asked to make a batch.
particular batch were to be very pretty, pastel, floral and Cath
Kidston inspired. Who doesn't life a bit of Cath Kidston? The colours,
flowers, polka dots... it's all too cute and I love it.
made three designs, two floral ones which were similar but with
different base colours and one with polka dots standing up in floral
cases. The two floral ones were made from being dipped in coloured white
chocolate. Half in pink and half in pale blue.
the floral part I cut out circles of fondant and set them on the cake
pops with royal icing, for the flowers I cut out red fondant with flower
plungers, added a gold pearl for the bud and again placed them on with
royal icing. For the stalk and leaves I piped on green royal icing and
to finish piped white pearls around the design.
polka dot ones were sooo easy to make and look super cute. I saw these
mini cupcake cases in the garden center and the floral design fitted in
so well I couldn't pass them by. So when I had dipped the cake pops in
white chocolate, just before they were set I put them head down in the
cases so they stood up. To make them even sweeter I piped pink polka
dots around them and boom, they were finished.
make them look more professional I wrapped them up in their own little
individual cellophane bag and silver tie. When they were finished they
looked great and like something out of Laura Ashley and I hear they went
down a storm.
I even got to use my Wilton cake pop
decorating stand that I got for Christmas for the first time. This shows
you just how long it's been since I made them.
