Roses aren’t just for Valentines Day! They are also for Birthdays!
Over the weekend I got a request to make Rose Cake Pops for a Valentine Birthday! The best of both worlds!
Roses were one of my first “designer” cake pop creations so I was excited to make a new batch with my much improved skills and accessories.
First off – I have Luster Dust!!! I used CK Products Tulip Red which I purchased at Kitchen Krafts.
Second – I have a leaf mold!
I am not going to go into detail on how to make cake pops, sorry… but you can see my YouTube videos here and here to learn how I make my cake pops. I dipped my pops into Red Candy Melts and allowed them to dry. To make them super shimmery I added my dry luster dust to the pops and if they could, they would’ve sang! Watch my video to see how I add the luster dust.
See how beautiful!!! Love the effect!
To make the rose effect, I simply made a spiral around the top half of the rose using a red chocolate “pen” and then sprinkled it with various styles of sugar crystals.
To make the leaves, I added green candy coating to my mold and allowed it to dry. Then I added some green luster dust to the leave to give them some shimmer as well!
I think that version 2.0 is so much prettier than the ones I was making a year ago!
I hope the Birthday Girl Loved them just as much!
