Hey There! I’m back! I missed you all last month but it was a very busy time for me. I got married September 13th. Woo Hoo for me! This weekend we are sailing from New York to the Bahamas for our honeymoon so by the time you are reading this I will be somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean having the time of my life. Speaking of a great time, these cake pops on today’s tutorial were inspired by Marie Antoinette. She is well-known for living somewhat extravagantly during the French Revolution and quoted as saying ‘Let Them Eat Cake’ while there were people starving.
I just read a little info on her and seems her life was not all fun and games.
Look her up. She led a pretty interesting life.
Okay enough of the history lesson – let’s make some cake pops!
White Candy Melts
Skin Colored Melted Candy
Various Small Edible Decorations
Sticks and Stand
*Wilton Candy Melt Writing Pen
*Here is a close-up of the Wilton Pens. These are the only edible ink pens I have found that truly work on cake pops. They write on the candy melt coating without picking up the candy and getting clogged. They work great for adding little details like the faces for these cake pops.
Begin making your cake pops by dipping your cake balls in the skin colored candy melts and allow to dry and set. Once they are hardened, using your melted white candy and a lollipop stick or toothpick, attach the mini marshmallows at the top of the head and continue adding around the sides. After those are set, keep building the marshmallows up using more melted candy. You can use a few marshmallows for a more modest look or pile them on to get wild and crazy – the sky’s the limit!
Once that is all dry, you can attach various small candies – like the little flowers and pearls used here- and make any sort of pattern (or non-pattern!) you like.
To make the face, use the edible ink pens.
With just a few simple features and these ladies are all ready for their debut.
Be creative – there’s no wrong way to do this.
You can use a variety of small candies as well as vary the colors to coordinate with any theme or holiday.
Have fun and please tag me (@Goodiebites) on your social media cake pop photos so I can check out what you’ve created. Also, if you’re in or near NYC I’d love to meet you at one of our cake pop classes. We have two scheduled for November.
