Despite being unwell over Christmas I eventually managed to make cake pops.
They were a lot trickier than I expected and I think a lot of practise will be needed to get them perfect but overall I was pleased with the result.
I went for fresh cranberry and vanilla flavour cake coated in white chocolate candy melts. The decorations were all white and blue which looked really wintery and festive.
I used a very dark blue glitter dust, white pearl balls, aqua sugar crystals and blue glitter flakes. This contrasted well with the cranberry red colour middle but it did prove a little problematic coating the red sponge mix with white candy melts as it required a few coats to stop the red showing through.
I wrapped each one individually in cellophane and finished with a blue ribbon.
I have taken photos for a tutorial so watch this space for more details but for now I leave you with the critics Malcolm, James and Eloise who all gave them a thumbs up!
I've been off work illl for a few weeks hence my lack of blog posts.Unfortunately this has resulted in a freeze on my baking. All my Christmas plans out the window!
But now things are looking up I am hoping to make some Christmas cake pops this weekend and have been searching the net for inspiration. Here are a selection of my favourites:
Cake pops are taking the country by storm. I really wanted to try baking some for Eloise's christening but i didn't have time to try out the quite complicated recipe.
My lovely sisters in law George, Sam and Vic stepped in and as a surprise made a whole batch for us!
They looked fab and matched the colour scheme of the main cake and cupcakes. They tasted fab and everyone enjoyed them.
