A few weeks ago, my friend Suzi donated some aprons for my Blog Anniversary Celebration. This week, I’m paying it forward to help out one of Suzi’s great causes – The Avon Walk for Breast Cancer.
Suzi is fundraising and walking in the 2013 DC walk. That’s 39 miles in two days! (And here I am complaining about training for a 5k run…) This will be her FOURTH year participating in the walk.
As part of the Mountain Momma’s Fundraising, they have been participating in a few local events. This Saturday, the ladies will be in Shepherdstown WV at the Freedom Run (man, I wish I were ready for this). They will be taking donations for baked goods – including these cake pops!
You know who is also donating?? Carrie from The Sweet Life. She will be donating some Cake Truffles for the cause. Aren’t those pretty?
When they were all painted, I re-melted the pink candy and added the Pink Ribbon design on the pop.
The white cake pops got Hot Pink Sprinkles and the pink pops got Pale Pink Sprinkles.
I think they turned out super FAB!
And I LOVE the pink surprize inside the cake pops as well!
If you would like to help Suzi and the Mountain Momma’s raise money for the Avon 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer, please click HERE.
ALSO – I’ve teamed up with the Mountain Mommas for a 50/50 fundraiser for their Avon Breast Cancer Walk. We’ll be selling a dozen Pink Ribbon Cake Pops for $20 and giving HALF to the team. If you would like your pops in a pretty Pink Container to display at work or home, the Pink Cake Pop Display will be $25. Of course, don’t limit yourself to just a dozen. Everyone loves cake pops – share them and help promote a great cause. Simply send me an e-mail to place your order. [email protected] Shipping for pops is available and is variable depending on weight and destination. I am not able to ship the pretty containers. Sorry.
Pink Ribbon Cake Pops
by Pint Sized Baker
Prep Time: 1 hour
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Ingredients (12 Cake Pops)
1/3 of a 9×13 Sheet Cake (Vanilla or Yellow)
1/8 Cup Vanilla Frosting
Hot Pink Nonpareils
White Candy Melts
Pink Candy Melts
Hot Pink Sugar Crystals
Light Pink Sugar Crystals
12 Lollipop sticks
Cake Pop Stand
Bake Cake and allow to cool. Cut 1/3 of the cake and mix with paddle attachment with frosting. Add in desired amount of Hot Pink Nonpareils. I used maybe 1 1/2 Tablespoons.
Form 12 balls using a cookie scoop and roll smooth. Place in fridge while melting candy melts.
Melt Candy Melts in separate ceramic containers being careful not to overheat them.
Dip 1/4 inch of lollipop stick into candy and then add cake ball. Six sticks into White and six sticks into Pink.
Dip Cake Pops straight down and back up again, coating completely, and allowing the excess to drip off. Stand up in cake pop stand. Six White Pops and six Pink Pops.
Paint on Luster Dust with a DRY brush. See videos (http://pintsizedbaker.blogspot.com/p/pint-sized-videos_29.html) here. The pink got “pinker” and the white took on a pearl look.
Put a small amount of Pink Candy into a baggie and snip off an edge. Draw on a Ribbon design and then sprinkle with Sugar Crystals. I put the Hot Pink on the white pops and Pale Pink on the pink pops.
