Dessert table idea 2018

Hi ladies and gents!
Spring Has Sprung!

Janine over at sugarkissed.net had the tremendous idea to bring a couple of cake poppers together to create a cake pop collaboration by creating tutorials for cake pops with a Spring theme for all our readers who love cake pops. I was thrilled, so happy to be one of the cake poppers included in this project!
Thanks so much Janine!

I could not decide for a specific spring/easter cake pop so I made various spring cake pops for you guys, and two of them include a how-to tutorial so you can make those yourself for Easter, yay!

You will get the tutorial for the following Cake Pops (more to come the next couple of days):
– Bumble Bee Cake Pops
– Spring Flowerpot Cake Pops

Let’s get started:

  • Prep Time 20 minutes
  • Baking Time 20 minutes in refrigerator
  • Difficulty Advanced
  • Servings

For the Bumble Bee Cake Pops:

Additional Items you may want to get, makes a nice gift:

  • Now we are all set and ready to get started: Prepare yourself before you actually start.
    Get everything out on the counter you need, so you do not stress yourself in the middle of the decorating process :-)
  • 1. Now, make your cake pops as usual or my NO BAKE Cake Pops, using Oreo cookies: Grind your to fine crumbs in a
  • 2. Put the crumbmix into a boal and hand mix with cream cheese. I use gloves though, because it gets messy :-)
  • 3. Keep in mind that the dough should have the consistency of play-dough.
  • 4. Shape your cake balls into bee shapes, just like in the photo, then refrigerate them for at least 10 minutes in the freezer or 30 minutes in the refrigerator to firm up.
  • 5. Now melt your . I usually do that in the microwave in 30 seconds intervals. If you are having a hard time with the consistency of your candy melts, . If your candy melts are too thick, just add a little bit of vegetable oil and stir.
  • 6. Get your chilled bee shaped cake balls out of the fridge. Dip a little bit of the in the , then stick the in the Cake Pop (half way). Let the Pops rest a bit in a so the candy melts set within the cake pop.
  • 7. Now dip the Cake Pop in the , shake off all the excess and repeat with all cake pops and let them dry in a .
  • 8. For the wings, use two white candy melts and cut 1/3 off with a knife or a round cookie cutter. Now simply attach the wings (hold them in place because they might fall to the side) to your bee cake pop. See? Looks a lot more like a bee now.
  • 9. For the stripes, I used stripes and “glued” those on the cake pop with yellow candy melts.
    Other options: You can either use fondant like I did, or get an and just paint the stripes on the cake pops, for the head and the back. Or if you happen to have black food coloring around, take a toothpick and paint the stripes carefully on the bee pop.
    Last but not least, you can do the same with dark melted chocolate.
  • 10. Now it is time to attach the stinger and the antennas:
    Use yellow candy melts as glue, hold the stinger in place and wait a little bit so it does not fall off, same thing goes for the antennas. You might want to not attach the antennas and stingers if you want to send your cake pops away because they will fall off during transportation.
  • 11. Paint little faces with an and attach little cute details such as bows using 2 hearts sprinkles.

Let’s make the flowerpot cake pops:

  • Prep Time 20 minutes
  • Baking Time 20 minutes in refrigerator
  • Difficulty Advanced
  • Servings

For the Spring Flowerpot Cake Pops:

  • Please prepare your cake pops as you normally do or use the ingredients and follow these instructions for the OREO truffle kind I explained above (Bee Cake Pops)
  • or fondant flowers and leaves (for extra detailed decorating)
  • for the outside of the pot (for extra detailed decorating)
  • crushed Oreo cookies or any other dark cookie (for the pots top)
  • (for extra detailed decorating)
  • (to dry cake pops)
  • toothpicks

Additional Items you may want to get, makes a nice gift:

  • Now we are all set and ready to get started: Prepare yourself before you actually start.
    Get everything out on the counter you need, so you do not stress yourself in the middle of the decorating process :-)
  • 1. After you prepared your cake pops (read the bee cake pops tutorial for preparing Oreo Cake Pops), shape the cake balls like I did on the photo, in rectangle shapes. Then refrigerate them for at least 10 minutes in the freezer or 30 minutes in the refrigerator to firm up.
  • 2. Melt your candy melts: I melted some white, brown and orange candy melts and mixed all together, but honestly, you can just use brown candy melts because the color does not really matter, as long as it looks like a flower pot in the end. I usually melt candy melts in the microwave in 30 seconds intervals. If you are having a hard time with the consistency of your candy melts, . If your candy melts are too thick, just add a little bit of vegetable oil and stir.
  • 3. Get your chilled flowerpot cake balls out of the fridge. Dip a little bit of the in the melted candy, then stick the in the Cake Pop (half way). Let the Pops rest a bit in a or on a plate, so the candy melts set within the cake pop.
  • 4. Now dip your cake pops in the brown candy melts, shake off all the excess and repeat with all cake pops and let them dry in a . Once dry, take a toothpick and draw a line of brown candy melts around the cake pop’s top – I did that twice and let it dry in between, so the pots will get a nice and thick border.
  • 5. Once dry, I added a bit of brown candy melts (using a toothpick) on the very top of the cake pop and then added crushed oreo cookies to it, to give it a “flower soil” look.
    Oreo cookies or dark cookies in general are perfect for that!
  • 6. Now you can add fondant/gumpaste flowers (using brown candy melts as glue) to your flowerpots, leaves, butterflies, anything you can imagine.
  • 7. I prepared many fondant flowers and leaves a day ahead so they could harden.
    Note: Any detailed decoration such as gumpaste flowers etc. that you want to use for a project: Make those ahead of time. Even days ahead, no problem.
    Makes it less stressful.
  • 8. Now add your flowers etc. to the flowerpot, add little details to the pot itself like I did, little candy hearts or sprinkles to give it some diversity.

These flowerpots would be perfect for a Mother’s Day gift as well!

I hope you all had fun with today’s post.
I loved putting these cake pops together, I highly recommend to make these, you will make people happy I bet.

Wishing everyone a blessed week,
niner
