I love finding cute Wilton products when I’m not looking for them. I found these cute purple posies and saved them for a special occasion. My guess is that they were at Wal-Mart in their Wilton area. I just love finding new products there. Have you seen the little packages of fondant as well? I picked up a small black fondant pack to use to wrap around these pops. I thought the black fondant stripe with the purple flower looked like a high fashion cake pop! Something for a Kate Spade, Tory Birch, or Vera Bradley collector!
I made these for one of my dearest friends. She just turned 40 and I am off to celebrate her birthday with her in Michigan. I hope that she loves these as much as I do!
I used some Wilton polka-dot straws and some cupcake topper pom-poms I found at Hobby Lobby. I wasn’t sure if the pom-poms would be too much or make them stunning. I think I chose wisely.
Thankfully, I was able to make these ten pops in under 2 hours. I was on a tight schedule to get these done, photographed, and posted – plus laundry, packing, and getting my kid from school, then driving to grandma’s house.
So, to get these done in a jiffy, here’s what you’re gonna do – use 1/4 of a 9×13 cake with 2 tablespoons of canned frosting. Mix those in a stand mixer and then make cake balls using a 1 Tbsp cookie scoop. Roll them smooth then place them in the fridge while you melt a bag of bright white candy melts. Dip the straw/ lollipop stick/ handle of choice into the melted candy then insert it into the cake ball.
When they are set, dip the pop straight down, then tapped off the excess and stand them up to dry. Here’s a great tutorial on how to get perfect bottom cake pops every time.
