Don’t these Strawberry Cake Pops make you smile?
They sure do make me smile!
I just love the sprinkles, the fun straws, and of course, the perfect strawberry on top!
It was so easy to make the strawberry with this Martha Stewart Crafts Silicon Mold
I wan’t sure how these were going to come out… I had never used polymer clay molds for candy melts before, but they are all made out of Silicone, so I figured they should all work well.
And sure enough, they did!
Simply paint some green candy into the leafy area and then back fill with the red candy and shake it or tap it to get the air bubbles out. Then pop it in the freezer for 5 minutes and remove it.
It is time consuming to make a bunch, but the result was so fun!
I hope they make you smile as well!
Strawberry Decorated Cake Pops
Prep Time: 1 hour
Keywords: cake pop
Ingredients (12 pops)
- 1/4 of a baked 9 x 13 cake – your favorite flavor
- 2 tbls frosting – that compliments that cake
- White Candy Coating
- Green Candy Coating
- Red Candy Coating
- Strawberry Molds
- 12 Straws or Lollipop sticks
Make 12 Strawberry Candies using the mold and a handful of the red and green candy melts. Paint some green candy into the leafy area and then back fill with the red candy. Give the mold a shake or tap it to get the air bubbles out. Then pop it in the freezer for 5 minutes and remove it.
Take 1/4 of a cake and add frosting. Mix with a paddle attachment until all combined and smooth. It should have a play-doh like consistency.
Measure out 12 equal sized cake balls using a 1 tablespoon cookie scoop. Roll the cake balls smooths then place them into the fridge.
Melt the white candy melts and stir until smooth.
Remove cake balls from the fridge, dip the straw into the white candy and then insert it half way into the cake ball. Set it aside and complete all of them.
Dip the cake pop into the white candy coating it up to the straw. Tap off the excess and add rainbow sprinkles. Stand upright to dry and continue all of the cake pops.
Add a drop of candy to the back of the strawberry and attach it to the cake pop. Hold it in place for a few seconds until the candy hardens. Be careful not to melt the strawberry candy with the heat from your hands.
