I am making some cake pops for a photography class I am taking from Beryl next weekend and I wanted to try out a new design- a camera! I’ve never really shown how I make my cake pops, so here are all the steps I went through to create them!
What you will need:
Cake made from a cake mix
Container of store-bought frosting
About a half of a package of Oreo cookies crushed
Candy Melts- black if you are making the cameras, or whatever color you choose if you are just making the pops
Small round sprinkles in white and any other color of your choosing
I have found it much easier, again, to mix everything with my hands. I usually take the cake pieces and put them on top of the icing so it’s not quite as messy. My mix looked like this after I was done. You want the mix to be moldable and not too sticky.
Then, I put the cake balls and cameras in the freezer for about 15 minutes to harden a bit. While the dough was cooling I set everything up that I would need to decorate the cake pops. For the camera cake pops, I melted black candy melts, took out 6 white small round sprinkles, and three blue and three pink sprinkles to use as the “button” on the top of the camera. For the pink cake pops, I melted the pink candy melts and had all the sprinkles in a bowl ready to put on the pops. I also put down wax paper to protect the table, had the sticks ready, and a Styrofoam board set up to stand the cake pops after they were decorated.
I let these dry for a bit, then started by dipping the cameras into the black melted chocolate. I tapped any excess chocolate off of the cameras, then immediately put the white sprinkle where the “lens” was and the pink or blue “buttons” on the top while the chocolate was still wet. I then put them in the Styrofoam to dry.
I followed the same process for the pink cake pops, except I only put the white ball sprinkles on the top of the cake pops while the candy coating was still wet.
After I finished all of them, I put them in the freezer to harden the chocolate coating.
My husband gave me his approval of the cake pops, eating two before I even posted this blog post!
Have fun making your own cake pops!
