It’s time for another cake pop post. Today, I tried something a bit new for me. Instead of using frosting to make the cake pop filling, I used some of my leftover Strawberry Rhubarb Curd. I used Lemon Cake and then added the curd. It was very easy and didn’t change the texture of the filling.
The next time you want to try something a little bit different, don’t be afraid to experiment.
The lemon cake was a bit over-powering compared to the strawberry flavor, but we all still enjoyed it!
I wanted to keep the decorations somewhat simple and elegant. I made a little combination of White Sparkling Sugar, Pink Sanding Sugar, Pastel Yellow Sanding Sugar, and itty-bitty gold dragees.
To keep with the elegant look, I opted to use my clear acrylic sticks. I think that they just look so pretty compared to the white sticks and a bit more sophisticated than the paper straws.
It was fun to mix and match the horizontal stripes with the vertical stripes and the plain pop with the sprinkles on top. Sometimes less is more and I this this was one of those occasions.
To make the lines so thin, I put some colored candy into a baggie and snipped off the corner. Then I just drizzled it while spinning the pop or moving it under the candy.
These would be great for any party or event. You know, not everyone wants to eat Sponge Bob or Olaf! Simple and Sophisticated are just as much fun!
