Introducing the Love Pops:
Are you ready to join in me in some sugar and spice and every thing nice cake pop love fest???
Well here is what we will need:
|Wilton's new Pops! Sweets on a stick! It is full of awesome cake pop ideas and |
other kind of pop treats. If you love cake pops (and oh lordy I do) then
this book is a must!
|You can buy this at your local hobby store in the cake/baking section|
or you can buy it online here: Rolled Fondant Neon Colors .
You can also make your own Wilton has several good Fondant recipes
on their web site as well.
|Lolly-pop sticks are a must for Love Pops. I got mine at Michael's but you |
can also purchase here: Lolly-Sticks . Here you can be super creative as well
and use red candy-canes, wooden spears or what ever you can come up with.
|Candy Melts are a must if you are serious about cake popping. Unless |
you have extensive work with chocolate it is really hard to get real
chocolate to melt to the right consistency and stay at that consistency.
Wilton has also made a new candy melt just for dipping cake pops:
|Let me preach it to you for a minute my fellow Cupcakes of the world. If you|
bake/decorate/mold/dip/cake pop or do anything else crafty in
the kitchen then you need a chocolate pro. Melting chocolate in the
microwave is for the birds. My red chocolate pro has seen plenty of use and abuse
and keeps on chugging along. I got this brand new Chocolate Prop
from Wilton as part of the Blogger Cake Pop contest. I <3 the chocolate pro.
They sale these at WalMart, Michael's and all sort of other stores or you can buy
here: Chocolate Pro .
Time to prepare the decorations and bake us some cake!!!
|Roll out the fondant and cut out some hearts.|
|I painted mine with red disco dust because sparkles are a Cupcake's right.|
|I just LOVE V-Day!|
|I wanted to try out some of the new pan/molds I got in my blogger kit|
and they turned out great! You can find all sorts of cool cake pop
molds here: Bake some love into it!
|I made a simple store bought chocolate cake with no fuss and easy clean up...|
|Once cake cooled crumble up and add about half a can of frosting to the mix.|
Don't add too much frosting or you will have a super hard time getting
the cake balls to stick together on the Lolly-pop.
|If you really want nicely shaped cake pops use a small ice cream scoop|
to help you form the right amount of cake mix in each cake ball.
|Pretty little home made chocolates to help with decorations of the cake pops.|
|I think these new flower cake pops are my new favorite. There are so many |
things you can do with these when decorating. The possibilities are endless!
|Lets get our dip on!|
I loved getting to decorate these cake pops and begin testing out my V-Day ideas with all my new toys I received for Christmas. Especially my new Wilton cake pop book: Pop! Sweets on a Stick! I got my idea for the Love Pops from scanning the colorful pages of my new book. If you love cake pops I highly recommend it. Baking brings joy to my house, a smile to my daughter and a satisfied tummy to my man. What else could a Cupcake wish for? I hope everyone enjoyed the cake pops. Now go forth into the world my Hearts and bake some love into your lives! (I <3 Wilton but Wilton doesn't pay/poke/prod/nudge me or my thoughts/views/words in any way. They did send me an awesome Pops kit! Thank you Wilton! I needed a new chocolate pro. Mine has been used/abused/smashed and once home to a Barbie Bath.)
PS: Check out this new cake pop stand Wilton makes! Totally needed. Now I can stop spending
all sorts of money I don't have on Styrofoam blocks...
