Try Your Hand At Cake Pops And Wow Your Mom With A Very Special Bouquet
Don’t be intimidated by making cake pops! This tutorial for Rose Cake Pops teaches you a foolproof technique with a result that Mom will love!
As one who has made her fair share of cake pops, I can tell you that there is an art to mastering these little bombs of cake and frosting. With most custom designs, you have to not only build the pops, but then decorate each tiny pop individually. I can’t even tell you how many miniscule sprinkles I have attached, using a pair of tweezers and a magnifying glass, in order to produce the most adorable little ladybug pops you’ve ever seen. It was enough to make me temporarily cross-eyed, but boy were they cute. And the client loved them, so that is what mattered most.
The great news is that not all cake pop designs have to be that difficult. If you have never tried to make cake pops, this Rose Cake Pops tutorial from Cakegirls may offer the perfect introduction.
You can do this!
There are several reasons why I like this design. The first is that they do not completely cover the cake mixture in candymelts. This can be a tricky step in cake popping because if you don’t have the lollipop stick adhered properly, the weight of the melts can often pull the pop right off the stick. Bummer. Secondly, the candy melt coating can also sometimes warp or crack, which can be a problem if you need a smooth surface on which to decorate. No coating means you don’t have to worry about that. And lastly, this rose-making technique with the flower cutter is one of the easiest ways to make a pastry rose. In fact, you could use this same technique to make fondant or gumpaste roses for cakes or cupcakes. Just use a ball of fondant with a flower wire as the center instead of the cake mixture. Same idea!
This would be such a fun idea to try to with a child to teach them the basics of cake pops and rose-making. Imagine where you could go from there!
