Cake Pops 2

Baby shower for Cathy, my mentor, colleague, and a co-teacher at Harker! Although Baby Rylen is here, we thought of throwing a fun shower and a get-together. Since this was the first baby shower I was to help in, Google search made it simple! I looked up for some ideas for decorating cake pops and this was the best one I could have made for the occasion.

Also spending some time at Michael's craft store was worth it! Made some candy covered cookies and candy covered pretzel rods :)

These cute baby face cake pops were made of moist chocolate cake and chocolate frosting dipped in vanilla flavored white candy.

Start with baking a regular cake or cup cakes. I added milk instead of water to make it more moist :) Read How to bake a perfect cake? for a leveled cake. You do not need a leveled or a perfect cake for pops :)

To make chocolate frosting: Whisk 1/2 cup unsalted butter till it is light and fluffy. Add 3 cups sugar and 1 cup cocoa powder. 3-4 tbsp. milk (for desired consistency. Whisk well.

Crumble cooled chocolate cake in a large mixing bowl. Add 1 cup of frosting. Mix the frosting well with the crumbled cake. Make small round balls. Since these are baby faces, I almost scooped an ice cream scoop size to have same size faces. Lay the balls on a cookie sheet and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

Add lollipop stick on the base or flat side of the ball with a bit of melted candy. This acts as a glue and would keep the stick from falling. Refrigerate till the candy dries.

Melt white candy in a microwave following the melting instructions. Dip each pop in candy and let it set on the stand. Once they are set, I place them in a glass to refrigerate them easily.

Use candy gel or colored candy or edible writing pen or chocolate to make eyes, hair and a smile. Use necklace candy to make pacifiers.

Place in a decorative container and you are ready to party! :)

Here are some candy covered cookies and pretzel rods.

 Congratulations Cathy
Wishing Baby Rylen A Long and Happy Life!!
