Name: Lemonade Dream
Difficulty: Hard
The cake itself and the frosting weren’t difficult, but the frosting is applied with a two tone technique that was absolutely awful to use, but they were absolutely delicious and a so much fun to tell people there was a liquid center, they try to drink the cake through the straw, its pretty funny.

Cake Pop Tutorial- Cats and Dogs

Things you will need:

-Materials to make any flavor cake

-One can of frosting

-Candy Sticks

-Candy Coating (Wilson’s is the brand I typically do)

-Decorating materials

Step 1: Bake your cake, it doesn’t matter what flavor you do, vanilla is normally a hit and chocolate cake pops often taste like Brownie batter. After it comes out of the oven, let it cool completely. The next step is optional but I find it helps if you use a spatula to remove the top part of the cake, which makes it easier to mold into the spheres later.

Step 2: Crumble the cake into a bowl, it doesn’t have to be fancy or anything.

Step 3: Put half of the frosting container in with the cake, using your hands mix it together until it looks something like this

Step 4: Now you roll the cake into small balls, around the size of a quarter. You’ll need to melt your candy coating according to the package labels, and have your sticks on hand.

Step 5: Take a candy stick, dip it into your bowl about an inch in, then put the stick into your cake ball as far as it will go without coming through to the other side.

So they should look like this:

Step 6: I put them in a fridge for a bit, so that the candy coating can act like glue, the next part is easy, dip your cake pops in the candy coating in one go, let the extra coating drip off and decorate!

This one took a heck alot of buttercream frosting and chocolate ganache, layered in order to get a furry effect. This was obviously for a Star Wars enthusiast. Chocolate cake, chocolate wafer for the nose!

Another Birthday Cake! This one has a green marble fondant color with sunflowers that I pipped onto vanilla wafers, stuck onto pretzel sticks with more frosting. Then we crumbled up some wafers on a ganache pathway to made a dirt road. Over all, alot of small details but one of my favorite cakes!
