Easter Egg Cake Pops
I'm a little late with my Easter post but I couldn't wait to share these with you! I was inspired by Bakerella to make these adorable cake pops. She has such wonderful, unique, adorable ideas for little cakes on a stick. I decided to do a more simple decoration and I ended up loving them! The technique is very easy, though I did add a bit too much frosting to the cake so the texture wasn't the best, but I will definitely try these again! And these are simple enough to make with your kids and they would have so much fun!
I took these to family Easter where everyone said they were adorable and it turned out that the aunts thought they were so cute that they hid them from everyone so they could enjoy these themselves! So funny!
The original cake pop technique and recipe can be found here. I used strawberry cake mix and cream cheese frosting for these pops.
For decorating the pops:
White Candy Melts (from Michael's)
Sanding Sugars (assorted colors from Surfas, 1 lb. for $3.96)
Jimmies (assorted colors from Surfas, 12oz. for $3.55)
Paper Lollipop Sticks (from Michael's)
Styrofoam Block (from Michael's)
Fake Grass (from Michael's)
White Square Container
* Shape the cake balls into an egg shape.
* Melt candy, let cool slightly. Dip in candy coating. Tap lightly to let extra drip off.
* Sprinkle entire egg with sugar or jimmies. Use a bowl sprinkle over.
* Let sit in the styrofoam block until dry.
* Repeat with varying designs and colors.
Once dry, cut styrofoam to fit container. Add grass on top of styrofoam. Insert cake pops into styrofoam and cover stick with grass.
You should definitely try these and check out Bakerella to see all the different shapes, animals and decorations she shows you how to create. Wonderful!
